How to Set Up and Use Samsung’s Secure Folder.

So, I got an email asking for a way to go about using the Secret folder feature —a security solution that leverages the defense-grade Samsung Knox security platform to create a private and encrypted space on a Samsung Galaxy smartphone running on Android 7.0 Nougat or better. It’s pretty easy, trust me.

In lay man’s terms, the Secure folder allows you to store all your er…Important er….”files,” however, it goes beyond that, the Secure folder is like having a second phone because you get the chance to install any application on your device. What this means is that you could have two Snapchat apps installed or two bank applications, separate from one another.

You can also change the name of the app to make it less obvious.

Did I mention that Secure folder encrypts data in a manner that’s impossible to recover without an iris scan, face scan, fingerprint scan, or PIN?

With that said, here is how you can hide your photos and data from prying eyes on the Galaxy A7

  1. Open Samsung’s “Galaxy Apps” Store
  2. Search for and install the “Secure Folder” app
  3. Log in using your Samsung Account (or create  one)
  4. Add a password, PIN, or fingerprint  authorization
  5. Open the app and click “Move to Secure Folder”
  6. Users can also manually move files, photos or apps to  it
  7. To create a second app, just select add and choose the app(s) you want to add.

        And our scintillating Love/romance story continues. I thought there was sth like that in the S5, but u only needed to add the things u wanted to hide in a folder then click a button that’s on the notification panel then everything goes till u click the button again and authenticate with your fingerprint.

      I so love this feature. I don’t always like to password my phone when am indoors. So this is safety enough to keep those private files out of prying eyes.

    4. Gonna learn it for feature use. Thanks
