Move files out of Secure Folder

Last modified : Jan 03. 2019

If you need to move files from your device to your computer, you'll need to move them out of Secure Folder first. It's also easier to share files and post to third-party apps from outside of Secure folder. See the step-by-step guide on how to move data out of Secure Folder. In this example we're moving images, but you can use the same steps to move any information you like.


If you're looking to remove apps that are inside of Secure Folder, see the page on How to uninstall apps from Secure Folder.

Use My Files to move data out of Secure Folder:

1 Open Secure Folder
Open Secure Folder
2 Open My Files

Please Note: You won't be able to move files from the Gallery or other Apps inside of Secure Folder

Open My Files
3 Find and select the content you wish to move
Find and select the content you want to move
4 Tap the 3 Dot Menu button on the top right corner, and select Move out of Secure folder
Tap the 3 dot menu button and then select Move out of Secure Folder
5 The content will be moved out of Secure Folder - and you'll find it in the same directory outside.
Content will transfer out of Secure Folder

In this example, images that were inside Secure Folder > Internal storage > DCIM > Screenshots have been moved to My Files > Internal Storage > DCIM > Screenshots outside of Secure Folder.
