Scrub that page link just tried it and it did not work (my bad) The secure folder is the closest thing to it it means you have to set it up as you would like it to be like what was the guest mode, and select which app's can be seen and used

Yeah as far as I can see from searching my phone and online a Mod should be able to confirm at some point but will keep looking around for you.

I also can't find private mode. The secure folder they have replaced it with is rubbish

Samsung removed it to push their own spying software "Secure Folder" which sends your data to their servers where they copy them. I wouldn't trust anything to samsung. Their TV's watch you for crying out loud. We need to get a petition going to get private mode back and keep samsung form our data...

I just noticed that Private Mode is gone and have been online looking up to see if others are having this problem with the Samsung S8 and I came across this thread. So are you saying that anything we had saved in Private Mode is now gone or inaccessible? I enabled the Secure Folder thinking it would just find my private mode items and pull them in but it is empty! How can I get Private Mode back so I can access my pictures and files?
