Last Update Date : Apr 12. 2018

Secure Folder protects your private contents and apps, such as photos and notes, for being accessed by others. Safeguard your private contents and apps even when the device is unlocked. You can also use multiple accounts on a single device.


1. On the Apps screen, tap Settings


2. Tap Lock screen and security


3. Tap Secure Folder


4. To use Secure Folder, you should sign in to your Samsung account. Please tap SIGN IN


5. Enter your Samsung account information and tap SIGN IN again





6. Select a lock method for Secure Folder


If you forget how to unlock the Secure Folder, you can reset your lock using your Samsung account.


7. If setup is completed, a shortcut to the Secure Folder will appear on the Home and Apps screens.







Secure Folder is a separate, secured storage area. The data and apps in the Folder cannot be transferred to other devices. Attempting to customize the operating system or modifying software will auto lock of the Folder and inaccessibility. Before saving data into the Secure Folder, please make sure that you have made backup copies of the data.
