If I try to use the 'Security policy update', it fails and says: 'Update failed due to network issues'.

My phone is not rooted and I don't have any dubious apps.

Exact same issue here since installing the latest update. Also not rooted and no dodgy apps.

There is no option to disable it. Seems to me that Samsung rushed out Knox far too quickly and didn't bother quality checking it. The update feature for the security policies doesn't work either and all the Knox stuff in the menus is in broken English. I hope they push out another software update soon to fix it.

All this is doing is pushing me closer to just flashing CM.

Which region has the least number of bloatwares included?
There are two MH8 ROMs as of now: BTU (United Kingdom) and TPH (Portugal). Both the same build date and changelist.
I downloaded BTU yesterday, but TPH came out right after, so I haven't flashed yet until I get your opinion guys.

In theory if you're using general unlocked firmwares rather than network branded ones the amount of bloatware shouldn't be too different. But if you're rooted you can remove the bloatware yourself anyway.

I've updated to MH8 a few days ago now and cannot see any app/evidence of Knox at all on my device. Can someone please point me in the right direction so that i can see what all the fuss is about

This is how it happened for me. I have Mega installed and use it as my cloud storage. I went into Gallery and uploaded an image to Mega from there. The upload was successful but afterwards I got an error saying the phone had closed the Mega app because it was trying to gain "unauthorised access to system." Others have reported the same error just from trying to open various games. When the error comes up I tap the button to update the security policy but it does not work, it just tells me there are network problems even though I'm on WiFi and it works fine.

I went to the security settings to turn this feature off or at least try and configure it but there is no option to do so. The only way to disable Knox is to root and disable Knox processes with Titanium Backup or similar. The built in application manager in settings does not allow you to disable Knox.
