Edited by Grimm, VisiHow, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video tutorial, we are going to review device administrators on the Samsung Note 10.1.
First, swipe down from the top of the home screen. You will pull down the notification panel.
Tap a gear- or wheel-shaped settings icon in the top right-hand corner. You will access settings.
Then, tap on the "General" menu. Then, locate the left-hand panel.
Scroll all way down on the left-hand panel.
Tap on "Security". "Security" has a blue circle with a lock inside.
Then, on the right-hand panel, scroll down to "Device administration".
Tap on the first option, "Device administrators". In "Device administrators", you can view or turn off device administrators. For example, on this tablet, there are Samsung KNOX, Android Device Manager, and AVG Anti-Theft service that currently have permissions as administrators.
You can simply tap on an administrator application or device. You will see what types of permissions it has. For example, Samsung KNOX has the permission to erase all data, change the lock-screen password, set password rules, monitor unlocking attempts, lock the screen, etc.
Checking the box next to a service or app means that you allow it to have the administrator privileges. According to your preference, you are able to check what you want to use. Samsung KNOX will already have its administrator privileges set up on the device when you have it new. You can check or uncheck device administrator applications and services to permit or limit access to certain content.
