Sometimes users will forget their lock screen password and you will need to reset it and provide a temporary password. This is sent to their device, however, the temporary password may not be visible if the lock screen notifications are set to only show icons and not the content. To customize the lock screen notifications, you can use a Knox Service Plugin (KSP) policy within the Knox Manage Portal.

How do I configure lock screen notifications in Knox Manage?

  1. On the left sidebar of your KM console, click Profile, then click Modify Policy.
  2. Go to Samsung Knox (Android Enterprise).
  3. Search for Knox Service Plugin.
  4. Click Device-Wide policies > Enable device Policy Controls > True.
  5. Click Device and Settings customization profile (Premium) > Configure Values.
