Default How to remove Knox?

Hey guys,

I am feeling like a total noob and am getting rather frustrated so please could somebody help me. I install this Samsung Knox app ting when I first got my Note 3 (N9005 - Non Rooted) and now I want it gone. I Do not know how to get rid of it and would be grateful if somebody showed me how.

I have tried googling and searching xda but found nothing

Many thanks in advance

Please do us a favor and put a question mark after your thread title. It appears as if you are showing us how to do it.

There is no way to remove Knox.

Didn't mean to offend you bro. But there is no way to disable Knox without unlocking the bootloader first, at least that's what I've read online.

I installed Knox also, and uninstalled it later without any problem.

Just log in in Knox, hit the menu button and hit uninstall.
It will uninstall Knox with every program installed with it.

But will this also prevent knox from stopping applications trying to modify system files?
