    Hi all,
    From what I have read, I am in the minority that was looking forward to getting Knox. My employer forces us Android folks to use Touchdown, but the iOS people get to use their native email/calendar apps. I was hoping this would resolve that problem.
    I just finished my update to 4.3, but Knox is nowhere to be found. I see "Knox Notification Manager" in the application manager, but that's it. I use Nova for my launcher, but there is no icon to launch Knox - I went and checked TouchWiz just in case but I don't see it there either.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Be careful what you wish for. :D

    Have you considered that it might just run "under the hood" with no settings for you to tweak?

    Hmm, no - not really. The Knox website info seems to indicate it is an app, and once you open it, works like a virtual desktop so you can install other apps.

    Is it possible Verizon removed the app?

    Same thing on the AT&T Note 3 - no app in the drawer, but Knox is all over the application manager. I think we have to (you do - I won't) download an app to activate the thing.

    Telus, Canada, it's in my app drawer and I need to download the app (which I did not). Hid it in Nova, removed notifications and keeping it that way.

    Like I said, be careful what you wish for. I don't want to wake it either. :D

    I installed the pre-rooted Verizon version with Knox and bloat removed.
