Secure Folder is a separate, secured storage area. The data and apps in Secure Folder cannot be transferred to other devices. Attempting to customize the operating system or modifying software will cause Secure Folder to be automatically locked and inaccessible. 

Before saving data in Secure Folder, make sure to back up a copy of the data in another location.
