Whitelisting Wi-Fi provides an added layer of protection to the devices, which guards them against unsecured Wi-Fi networks. Whitelisting Wi-Fi allows the devices to only connect to selected Wi-Fi networks, preventing possible attacks and security threats that put the stored data in danger.

Steps to whitelist Wi-Fi on Samsung Knox Devices

Whitelisting Wi-Fi can be achieved on Android Samsung KNOX devices using a script deployed remotely from SureMDM console onto the device.

Step 1: Create a Whitelisting job

1. Login to SureMDM Web Console.

2. Go to Job.

3. Click on New Job.

4. Select Android from the list of Operating Systems.

5. On Select Job Type screen, click on Run Script.

Step 2: Create the Run Script

1. On Run Script prompt name the job.

2. Add the following script.

!#suremdm
whiteListWifiSSID(SSID1,…SSIDn)

3. Remove SSID1, …SSID2 and replace it with your whitelisted SSID.

Note: For multiple SSIDs, write all SSIDs in brackets and add commas in between them as shown below:

!#suremdm
whiteListWifiSSID(test SSID1,test SSID2, test SSID3)


Step 3: Push the Job to Your Devices

1. Go back to SureMDM Home.

2. Select desired devices/group and click Apply.

3. From the list, select the job you have created earlier and click on Apply.

Step 4: Verify Non-Connectivity to Non-Whitelisted Network

After the job has been pushed, verify the device does not connect to non-whitelisted networks. Go to device settings and try to connect the device to a non-listed network.

The following notification should appear:

“Your device is now protected from unsecured networks.”

Note: This feature will work only on SureMDM Nix Agent version 12.09 onwards.
