Handle SMS and never show SMS to user

MB

I am developing an app that should only run inside a Knox container for security reasons. The application should handle received SMS text messages and send its own messages. Also, received and sent SMS messages should not be visible to the user. Is it possible to implement this using Samsung Knox Premium and how would I do this?

Hi Mark,

I would like to further understand your use case.

Is the device in COM?

Are there multiple apps available to the user or only the SMS interceptor?

I am developing an app that communicates with a backend using SMS, because the app should work without a network connection. The device is registered with samsung sds emm and the device is dedicated for use of this app. The content and sender of the SMS messages should be interpreted by this app and should not be visible to the user because it contains sensitive content.

Hi Teun,

When you say "the device is dedicated for use of this app", does that mean the user of the device is only able to interact with that application?

If this is the case, why would you still need to block them from using the SMS app?

Yes, the user is only able to interact with that application. The application communicates with a backend using SMS. The SMS messages contain sensitive information that may not be read by the user. Only the app may interpret the SMS messages.

Hi Teun,

Unfortunately we don’t directly support this use case.

I will, however, submit this as a feature request to R&D.
