Hi,
On my galaxy s5, I have an app called 'New Registration'. Not sure what it does but the app seems to have lots of permissions enabled. Googling didn't help. Pretty much every permission imaginable is enabled. I can see it in the app manager but I cannot see it the applications folder. I've attached the app manager screenshots. Would appreciate it if someone can shed some light on what this app does.

It's used to register your device with your company if using KNOX.

Btw, anytime you see an app with the "Turn Off" option (regardless of whether it is active or greyed out) that means it is a system app and not something to worry about being on your device. Well, unless you happen to be one of those paranoid people who think google/samsung/their carrier is intending to do evil to them, but someone like that is better off not having a smart phone at all.

I use an event logger app, and have discovered that this app becomes active more than a few times a day.. seems to be gathering information and updating itself somehow someway.. and I don't use any of that Knox crap. What the hell is this app?

I've been having Wifi Calling/SIM issues with T-mobile lately.. a REG99 error.
