Frequently Asked Questions

Purchasing a license key is required to use Knox Guard. Contact our sales team or your local Knox license reseller for purchase. Once purchased, access the Knox Guard console to enter your license key. After your devices are uploaded by Knox Deployment Program (KDP) device resellers with your Customer ID, the license is applied and activated automatically on the devices accepted into Knox Guard.

Once a device's payment status is set as completed, the Knox Guard client will be deactivated on the device and the device will no longer be tracked or controlled with Knox Guard.

A Knox Guard managed device can automatically lock itself to protect against malicious attacks. In such cases, you can unlock by deleting the device's IMEI from the Knox Guard console and rebooting the device. Before deleting the device, please ensure that there are no outstanding payments.
