While Samsung mobile devices are built with security in mind, there are plenty of steps you can take to protect your home, data, smartphones and tablets yourself. These actions might include safeguarding passwords with Samsung Pass, backing up data regularly, or setting up SmartThings motion sensors to detect unexpected movement in your home while you're away. 


There's only one you, so biometric locks using Face Recognition or Ultrasonic Fingerprint technologies are a proactive way to protect access to sensitive apps like banking and emails. They can even help to secure your data if your device is stolen. To make things easier, we've rounded up some useful pages for keeping your data and devices safe and included them in this Support Splash for you:


Payments and passwords

What is the Secure Folder and how do I use it?

Don't forget, you should always send us an error report through the Samsung Members app if you ever encounter unusual behaviour on your smartphone, tablet or wearable.

Thanks @Discover , certainly beneficial to have security advice in one place.   Whilst I am vigilant and take precautions not all members will be up to date-think it is important to take security seriously.   Personally I am a fan of the secure folder for some activities.
