Default How to enable KNOX on Tab S ?

Hi all, I just swapped my Tab pro with Tab S, but on the Tab S, I couldn't find the app, searching on Samsung apps doesn't help, google doesn't help either unless I missed it, hence I am asking here.

Thanks
Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 - better than Tab S

Try going to Settings> applications> all. There is a Knox installation wizard there.

Hi
I have already tried that, and there isn't any knox in there. Also tried the knox apk posted somewhere in this forum and i doesn't work. I think I will be returning mine and get the Tab Pro back.

Odd, it doesn't show up on my app drawer but in settings when I slide all the way over it does. If you need Knox and can't find it, going back to the TabPRO is best for you.

Yup, I have returned the Tab S and got a Tab Pro which is faster IMO, and has less bloat.

Looks like Samsung has pulled the plug on Knox.

I too am unable to install/activate Knox on my Tab S. Under Settings>Applications>Application manager> ALL I see KNOX 0.00B, Knox Notification Manager 28.00KB and KNOX SetupWizardClient 44.00KB but can find no way to activate/run them.

So no one else has this option? or it just doesn't do anything?

Maybe try launching it from an activity using an app like quickshortcutmaker?

No matter what I did, nothing worked, I couldn't even find it in Administrator tab, but it is in Apps... so it looks like Samsung did not include the container, and there is a 6 month trial on Samsung website. I already returned my Tab S and got another Tab pro 8.4. I am not planning to root this device, until maybe it becomes a necessity.

As I mentioned in my post, this is exactly what I see, but just like you I've not found a way to run it.

BTW - forgot to include the link regarding Samsung pulling the plug on Knox - here it is: http://www.forbes.com/sites/bobegan/...aga-continues/
