Default Lockscreen pw AND Know or Secure Workspace PW? 2 PW's?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm test installing BES12 on a Samsung S6 Active. Wasn't really sure which activation type to use but since this is a Samsung device I figured one off the KNOX types.

So I have used Work & Personal - Full Control.

It would appear that all activation types require the device to have a lockscreen password. It also appears that all of the activation types require a password into the workspace or KNOX. That's 2 passwords to get to your email.

Is there any way to remove one of these? 2 PW's to check your email is excessive. My god. I've got my BB10 device set to NO PW and all I have to do is hit the button tape here to access your work space. That's what I'd really like.

I did notice that using KNOX is allowing me to put my work icons (email, cal, contacts etc) out with my personal icons on the Personal side. I do like that.

But I need to figure something out for the password thing.

Thanks,

I am not familiar with KNOX but on the Blackberry devices you also have a device password and a Work Space password.

You can set a policy to have both passwords the same and unlocking the device will also unlock Work Space. I don't know if something similar exists on KNOX.

Found the problem. Exchange activesync device access policy was stepping on BES12 policy once email client is configured. Simply turned off "require password" in EMC activesync configuration and now it follows the BESAdmin setttings.
