The Problem of Pre-Loaded Apps on Employee Mobile Devices

Most smartphones come with pre-loaded applications populating their home-screens, courtesy of the carrier or manufacturer. Many of these apps are a convenient value-add for consumers, but within an enterprise device deployment they may become a distraction for the end user.

Often described as “bloatware,” pre-loaded apps can be a big problem for IT administrators to manage, as they do not want anything to negatively impact the user experience.

For IT admins looking for a way to remove or disable bloatware, Samsung’s Knox Configure provides an effective solution. With Knox Configure, IT can fully customize devices such as smartphones, tablets and wearables, removing or disabling any pre-loaded applications that might be getting in the way.
