After the August update, when I reboot my phone, it shows a persistent notification "Secure Folder locked" under Android system section...the only way to make it go is to unlock my secure folder.

I don't want to uninstall Secure Folder, just looking for an one time solution to get rid of that pesky notification. TIA

If you press and hold the notification, does it give you the option to turn off the notification?

No, tried that already before posting here :smiling-face:

Try wiping the cache partition of the phone and that may resolve the issue. Just search 'how to wipe cache partition Galaxy S20' and you should find what you are looking for 😃. Hope this helps! 🙂

No, that doesn't help :smiling-face: Thanks for trying to help though.

Maybe someone facing this and been successful to resolve can suggest me the option to get rid of that (if that is possible that is) 😄

Getting same issue with S10+ after Aug update.

Thanks for confirming, looks like the Aug update has introduced this new nagging feature to our Samsung devices 😒

I have the same issue with this annoying notification on my Lock Screen.

 

Now, I can't into my secure Folder as I have forgotten my Password, but there is no Button "Forgot Password" to reset it, as it is explained in many instructions on the www. I can't type "FORGOT PASSWORD" as the keyboard shows only Numbers. Can anyone help?

I have the same issue, but it's with my Tab S7.  None of the support/forum suggestions help and I cannot for the life of me find the reset password option.

It looks like this annoying, persistent notification issue only started in August. Samsung needs to allow this notification to be turned off. Please someone post when Samsung has done this. I have this error on my Flip 4.
