How to deactivate Samsung Knox?

I installed TeamViewer QuickSupport on my Samsung S8 and the first time I installed it, I was prompted with the message "Remote Control this device. In order to remote control this device, please activate Samsung Knox" which I allowed.

I don't really want to leave this feature on.  How do I disable this feature?

I did a search through the apps and the settings and can't find Samsung Knox anywhere on the phone.

Thank you

Samsung Knox is just its security platform, im not sure you can remove without root etc. basiclly teamviewer is making sure your deivce is secure before it starts letting deivces connect to it. It shouldn't interfer with anything

DanTheMan151 is absolutely correct.

Knox is a built-in feature of Samsung mobiles and should not be removed.

Also, without knox, you cannot control the phone with TeamViewer. Activating knox is a requirement and is part of our agreement with Samsung to allow remote control of their devices. (Remote control requires manufacturer co-operation)
