*Mobile Remote Support:

- Full remote control is available on Samsung devices running Android 4.2.2 or newer and all rooted Android devices.

Important notice for Samsung device users:
- “This app uses the Device Administrator permission.”
- Samsung KNOX needs to be enabled to allow a remote control of your Samsung mobile device. We will use administrative permission (BIND_DEVICE_ADMIN) to enable Samsung KNOX and it will be used during the remote support session only. You will be able to revoke the administrative permission once the remote support session ends.
- If you do not enable Samsung KNOX you will still be able to share your screen using Android's MediaProjection API but a remote user will not be able to control your mobile device during the support session.
- You can revoke administrative permission anytime in Android device settings (Settings->More->Security->Device Administrators).
- Make sure to revoke administrative permission before uninstalling this app.

I'm pretty sure that this app is being used to watch and see what my device is doing. This is because when I go to "Log" inside the app settings, there are hundreds of occasions where it's been on when I haven't realised, as I said, this is only a theory and I have nothing else to prove my point however once you install the app, it is there forever as I have tried on numerous occasions to remove it from my device but can't, hope this helps someone and you can probably find something better

The app is primarily created for ISL Online users. It is designed for remote support purposes and we get good reviews from business users. I am sorry that you didn`t like our app. Here are the instructions on how to remove (uninstall the app)

We use ISL Online desktop to support our customers, this app works really well for us to also get access to their phones when they need it. That is all we have used it for, but it does what is needed. There is no option to control but being able to see a phone remotely and advise is invaluable and I believe that is an Android limitation, not the app.

Fantastic app to help out people who have issues with their phones especially elderly people. Thanks to this app, I've been able to fix my dad's mobile phone issues. Great job team.
