I have forgotten my password for the KNOX container, what should I do ?





If you enter your KNOX password incorrectly 15 times, you will be asked for the pin you provided when you first installed the container.  After providing this pin, you will receive a password hint.

You have a remaining 5 attempts after the hint is shown to enter your password.

 If you fail to enter your password 5 more times, KNOX will delete itself. If you are locked out of the KNOX container, the

only way you can uninstall the KNOX container is by doing a factory data reset. Before doing a factory data reset,

 always back up your personal data  see below for process to Back up data, then Factory Data Reset:
