What happens if I root my device that is running a Knox service?

If you root your device, you trip the Knox Warranty bit. Knox services do not run on devices that have tripped the Warranty bit, because this indicates a device is rooted and flashed with an unofficial Android build. This security risk means that Knox can no longer ensure your data is protected. 

The following Knox services are affected if a Warranty bit is tripped.

Knox Platform for Enterprise

  • Existing Workspace's are permanently locked and the data is no longer accessible.  
  • New Workspace's can't be created.

Knox Cloud Services

Other Secure Samsung services
