Disabling Other Home Screen Disabling Safe Mode Disabling Factory Reset Disabling Multi Window Disabling USB Disabling Hardware Keys
With an inbuilt option – Enable Samsung KNOX, you can enable following lockdown features without rooting:
Disable other Home Screen
Disables all other installed Home Screen along with device’s Default Home Screen.
Disable Safe Mode
Disables users from entering Safe Mode using hardware keys on the device.
Disable Factory Reset

Disables multi-window multitasking option on the devices.
Disables USB usage of the device for following two uses:
–Mass Storage – restricts access to stored files on the device
