Knox Configure is a cloud-based solution for customizing and staging Samsung devices remotely, right out of the box. It helps service and content providers rebrand and customize Samsung devices with a frictionless, out-of-the-box setup process. Advanced device configuration enables them to tailor every granular aspect to their specific needs and to transform devices into purpose-built appliances. For a comprehensive list of features, see Knox features on Android.

Two Knox Configure editions are available:

  • Setup edition is designed for a one-time deployment of apps and settings to enrolled devices without incremental updates. Within the license period, all settings remain even after a factory reset.
  • Dynamic edition is designed to deploy and update enrolled device policies as many times as needed without a factory reset. It includes all the policies and settings available in the setup edition as well as other enhancements such as Single/Multi ProKiosk mode, Profile push updates, and Unlimited app installation.

Knox Configure is supported on Samsung devices running Knox versions 3.0 and higher, and running Android 8 and higher.

Each Knox solution, including Knox Configure, supports the five most recent major Android versions. That is, the most recent version plus the four previous versions.

To upgrade your trial license, consult your Knox reseller.

If you purchase devices from one of these resellers, you can then use Knox Configure (KC) to customize devices for your enterprise needs. Only devices purchased from participating resellers can be verified and uploaded to KC through the program.
