Samsung’s new infographic shows how Knox completely secures your digital life

Samsung’s mobile security suite Knox now comes with almost every mid-range and high-end Galaxy smartphone. When it was first introduced, Knox was meant for keeping safe corporate data, but the South Korean smartphone giant added more features and extended it for normal consumers. Now, the company has released an infographic that showcases how Knox secures all facets of our digital lives.

Knox is a multi-level security solution where it is integrated into the hardware as well as software of a device. It works at three levels: chipset, operating system, and apps to protect the data from intrusion, malware, viruses, and any such threats. Knox can be used to keep personal and professional data separate, and the data can only by accessed by your biometric information such as fingerprint or iris.

Knox also keeps safe your credit and debit card information as well as Samsung Pay transactions. You can also save your website login details using Samsung Pass, a new feature that was released with the Galaxy Note 7. The security suite also offers a way for corporates to completely tailor a Galaxy device according to their needs using its Mobile Device Management (MDM) features.

Unfortunately I tripped my Galaxy’s KNOX by rooting it!
Is there anyway to get it back?

Thought they were doing away with KNOX according to email I received from Samsung back in June or is that just MY KNOX in favor of Secure Folder

There’s a bit of confusion there, it’s true. The Knox protection will all be still there exactly as before, it’s embedded into the device itself, but the separate secure space will now be in the secure folder instead of the old Knox folder. Same thing, different name. They’re doubling up right now to get people accustomed to it. The Note8 will come with secure folder only but it’s still knox protected.
