    Your secret are no longer safe. Just kidding.
    Samsung Knox protects you from most security issues. I have nothing to add. Good config.

    Good config. No need to be paranoid on the daily scans, I believe monthly ones will be more than enough with Unknown Sources Disabled. Also, Samsung built in Smart Cleaner does more harm than good by my experience.
