Fix Recommendation

Configure the mobile operating system to disable all pre-installed mobile printing plugin applications.

(Note: Refer to the Supplemental document for the list.)

Check Contents

This validation procedure is performed on both the MDM Administration Console and the Samsung Knox for Android device.

Check whether the appropriate setting is configured on the MDM Administration Console:
1. Ask the MDM administrator to display the "Application disable list" setting in the "Android Application" rule.
2. Verify the setting includes the list of pre-installed mobile printing plugin applications.

(Note: Some carrier versions pre-install Samsung Print Service Plugin and HP Print Service Plugin.)

On the Samsung Knox for Android device:
1. Open device settings.
2. Select "NFC and sharing".
3. Select "Printing".
