How to programatically disable or hide pre-installed apps inside a Knox Workspace container

The Knox Workspace container might contain different 3rd-party apps based on the region the device is associated with. If you would like to hide or disable these apps, call the setDisableApplication() method of the ApplicationPolicy class.

public boolean setDisableApplication (String packageName)

If you are using an EMM to manage your devices, please contact your EMM representative for guidance on whether setDisableApplication() is implemented.

By default, Google services are disabled inside the Knox Workspace container. If you see Google apps inside the container, you should check whether any Google-related policies are enabled by the EMM.

If you need further assistance, you can sign in to your Knox dashboard and create a support ticket.
