SOLVED: What is IAM & EMM on Samsung Cell and How Can I Remove It

The short version is Samsung SDS IAM & EMM is management software your company likely put on your cell to keep its data safe.  Let’s go through a few definitions first and then we will show you how to remove it:

  • SDS = Samsung Data Systems – the software wing of Samsung
  • IAM = Identity and Access Management
  • EMM = Enterprise Mobility Management

and SDS IAM & EMM are combined into management tool Samsung has branded Knox.

Ok, enough history.  If you are seeing IAM & EMM CLICK TO OPEN on your cell then that device is managed by Knox.  If you want and you want to get rid of IAM & EMM follow this process.  In the screen shots below I have already unsubscribed but the removal process is clear:

  1. Click the IAM & EMM Click to Open link
  2. In the Samsung SDS IAM & EMM app click the SETTINGS cog icon in the bottom right
  3. Click REMOVE or UNINSTALL or DEACTIVATE (depends on the version)
