Knox on Samsung smartphones can get very annoying. It takes Security to the extreme and doesn’t even allow you to get root access with Super User. It shows you the following message when Super User tries to get root access to do a task you need. “SuperSU tried to access system in your device without authorization. This action was blocked.” OR “An application attempted to access system on your device without authorization.” OR “Unauthorized access to a secured area has been blocked.” This may also work on other Samsung phones like the Galaxy S3, S4 or S5.
