Samsung Knox

UNIQUE ADVANTAGE: Samsung Knox

Boomerang Parental Control is the only parental control app to utilize Samsung’s Knox which is an enterprise mobile security solution pre-installed in most of Samsung’s smartphones, tablets, and wearables. We turn on a few settings by default for child devices which enables Boomerang to control and secure Samsung devices better vs other Android-based devices. We do not apply anything to parent devices used in our “Parent Mode”.

WHAT GETS APPLIED BY DEFAULT

Based on user feedback we’ve selected the following settings to apply by default on Samsung devices. Many other options exist if you wish to lock down your child’s device further. Visit our our web dashboard to make changes to your child’s device via the Advanced tab.

GPS FORCED ON

Enforces the current setting for your child’s GPS/Location service. By enforcing this block of GPS changes, your child will not be able to turn off the GPS on their Samsung device.

DISABLE MULTI-WINDOW

On newer devices, a multi-window feature exists where two apps can be run in a split-screen approach. We block this in some scenarios the second app that gets added can bypass screen time limits.

PREVENT SAFE MODE

Safe Mode on Android is normally used for troubleshooting issues with your device. In the case of parental controls, it can circumvent the active protection.

DISABLE MULTI-USER

Blocks the creation of additional user accounts and also blocks using the built-in Guest Mode feature.
