New license deactivation methods

Knox Capture v1.3 introduces three new ways to deactivate a license. You can trigger license deactivation by uninstalling the Knox Capture app, modifying the License field within your EMM’s app configuration screen, or by entering the associated device’s IMEI in your Knox dashboard.

Knox Capture license seats are also automatically released after 180 days of device inactivity, ensuring that any seats associated with lost or unused devices can be reused.

For detailed steps on each deactivation method, refer to Deactivate a license.

Updated toast message behavior after Knox Capture scan trigge

Previously, when a device user tried to initiate a Knox Capture scan with a hardware or software trigger and there was no Knox Capture profile associated with the app activity, the following toast message appeared:

[Package name] doesn't support Knox Capture scan

This message appeared most frequently in system apps. Starting from v1.3, Knox Capture supports scanning for all system apps. If there is no Knox Capture profile for the app activity, the toast message no longer appears after the device user activates one of the Knox Capture trigger buttons. This behavior applies to both the device camera and any peripheral hardware scanners attached to the device.

Support for system apps in scanning profile creation

Prior to Knox Capture v1.3, only 3 system apps were allowlisted when selecting apps for scanning profile creation: Samsung Internet, Google Chrome, and Samsung Messages.

With this release, you can now select system apps in addition to downloaded apps when creating a profile. On the app selection screen, tap the filter icon and choose to filter the app list by Downloaded apps, System apps, or All.

  • 1D barcodes with 1px bars are now recognized more easily.
  • Barcodes inside bitmaps can now be scanned.
  • Barcode image localization is improved in difficult scanning situations, depending on the device or symbologies involved.
