Samsung KNOX Settings in SureLock

SureLock for Samsung Devices with Android 4.2.2 and above now is powered by Samsung KNOX. This means, for the mentioned devices, there is no rooting required to enable advance lockdown features like:

Disabling Other Home Screen
Disabling Safe Mode
Disabling Factory Reset
Disabling Multi Window
Disabling to default USB
Wipe Recent Apps
Disable S Voice
Disabling Hardware Keys


With an inbuilt option – Enable Samsung Knox, you can enable following lockdown features without rooting:

Features Details
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 users from resetting device to factory settings. This is much helpful if you have allowed Settings as an allowed application and do not want the users to factory reset the device to come out of lockdown. Once this option is enabled, Factory Reset option gets grayed out.
Disable Multi Window Disables multi-window multitasking option on the devices.
Disable to default USB Disables USB usage of the device for following two uses:
Mass Storage – restricts access to stored files on the device
USB Debugging – restricts access to device using Command Prompt
Wipe Recent Apps On launch of SureLock, the recent applications accessed by the user on the device get auto wiped.
Disable S Voice Disables S Voice feature on Samsung devices.
Disable Hardware Keys Disables all the hardware keys of the device.


Note: Hide Bottom Bar is also one of the function that is available for devices with Samsung Knox devices. This feature will completely hide the bottom bar of the device which has options to go to Home, go Back and access Recent Apps. This option is available under SureLock Settings.
