We use our smartphones to stay in touch, take photos, shop, bank, access business information, and so much more. And the more we use them, the more sensitive data they store. What could happen if your phone falls into the wrong hands? Samsung designed Knox to address these concerns, so you can worry about more important things.
Knox is Samsung’s guarantee of security, and a secure device gives you the freedom to work where, and when you want. Samsung Knox consists of a highly secure platform built into the Galaxy S9 (as well as the S8) with a set of solutions that leverage this platform. Whether you’d like to keep your personal photos private, or remotely manage a batch of business smartphones, Knox has you covered.
