How to disable the retail mode app on Samsung devices

Retail mode on Samsung devices is a kiosk-type mode that is built into all Samsung devices. This mode can be used when the devices are set up for display.

However, Retail mode is not suitable for enterprise purposes because of the limitations listed below.
Limited Functionality: Retail mode typically restricts certain features and customizations that businesses may need.
Security Risks: Devices in retail mode may have disabled security settings to facilitate easy access for customers in a store environment.
Data Management: Retail mode often prevents the storage of personal data or the use of business applications that require data input and management.
Customization Restrictions: Businesses need to customize devices to fit their specific needs, including installing business applications, setting up user profiles, and configuring system settings. Retail mode typically locks these settings to prevent changes by customers in a retail setting.
