How can I find out if my device runs Android Go? 

To see which devices are incompatible with Knox, visit Devices secured by Knox:

  • Under Knox version, N/A (One UI Core device) is shown.
  • Under Knox version, N/A (Android Go device) is shown.

If your device is missing from the list, the device is unsupported by KC. 

How do I set up my non-Knox enabled device in Knox Configure?

If Knox is incompatible with your device, when creating your KC profile, ensure that you have selected Other Samsung devices under General information Device level.
