Keep personal data personal
with Secure Folder

Mobile devices have become our multi-purpose tools – our wallet, our phonebooks, our photo albums, our portable computers. For an extra layer of privacy, Secure Folder creates a separate encrypted space to store your data, meaning only you have access to the most private parts of your phone.

  • *Availability of Secure Folder may vary by device.

Safe transaction with Samsung Pay

When paying with Samsung Pay on your mobile device, your card information is encrypted in a completely separate and secure data vault. Whether you’re making investments, transferring funds, or shopping for yourself, your transactions are secure and don’t leave behind a paper trail of receipts. Plus, as long as you have your phone, you'll always have your credit card on hand.

And if you need to, you can also delete all data stored on your device.

  • *Availability of the Find My Mobile service may vary by device and/or OS.
  • *To use the Find My Mobile service:
  • 1) You must have set up your Samsung account on your device.
  • 2) You allow Google to collect your location information and agree to the 'Use wireless networks' terms and conditions.

Chip-up manufacturing
Samsung can design, create, and validate every computer chip, every piece of wiring, and every hardware component before using them to manufacture mobile devices in highly secure factories around the world. Full control over design, manufacturing and assembly ensures a secure supply chain and an end product you can trust completely.
Data encryption
Knox platform encrypts your data so it is not exposed or vulnerable, even in the event of theft or loss. Your data remains encrypted while your device is powered off and won’t be decrypted unless you choose to completely unlock it.
Data isolation
We’ve designed our Samsung mobile devices with data isolation built into every component. It’s a double-lock for your sensitive data, meaning even if someone managed to get inside your phone, the only person who has real access is you.
Run-time protection
Run-time protection means your Samsung mobile device is always running in a safe state against data attacks or malware. Any unauthorized or unintended attempts to access or modify your phone’s core, the kernel, are blocked in real time, all of the time.
