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

You'll only get the notification to unlock (actually login) to the secure folder once you reboot your phone. Then you login to it (which enables notifications from apps within if you want them) and you won't receive anymore notifications from Secure Folder to login, until the next reboot.

Ok Elon, So you decided to log into the Samsungs forum only to post your 1st message with your brilliant advice? At this point, I should tell you just don't ever reboot, EVER... I would not want to be rude and mute you so mybe you can give us advice on how to downvote you?

Why are you getting notified to login to "unlock Secure Folder to receive notifications"? This is a unique feature of Samsung phones to have more than one account for each app and to secure it behind a seperate pin or seperate fingerprint from the rest of your device, cool right? However if you want to receive notifications from the secure folder with the rest of your Samsung notifications, you have to 'unlock' it once at each startup.
First, if you don't want to use the secure folder app, sign out of your Samsung account, then uninstall the Secure Folder. If you want to keep the 'Secure Folder' then currently you'll have to put up with the notification when you reboot. Some alternatives is to install a 3rd party app to suppress the notification.

Errr Elon, You sure have a big mouth without answering the questions people ask. What might I expect your first message to be? I don't know, HELP mybe instead of your doctor's obvious answers. Call me crazy but it seems like you've read my previous messages. But just like Elon, you conveniently steal my own ideas and try to resell them to me. Thanks, I've already decided to dump them, as I said before! Later!

Ummm, it's "Secure Folder" not "Secret Folder". You can disable biometrics on it and have a seperate pin from the regular files, so in that way it's "Secure". The contents will be secret if you keep it that way.
Magic folders on PC was a way to have an actual "secret" folder, and required a secret code to make it show up.

Yeah... I'm sure he gets it... I own a Samsung Super Secure Safe for my house! Aww it's fricking awesome, but it only works if I hang the flag that reads "Don't forget to enter your password to the Super Secure Safe before you go!" outside my door every time I leave... Your fix... Just don't leave...

Nothing does do the job unfortunately. It keeps notifiyng.
I could only prolong the notification time by selecting as settings to lock the folder only upon phone restart. But this means, once unlocked it stays unlocked visible or not and it will grant acces without fingerprint, pin, or what so ever. So not really the solution I am happy with.
I and many others too would love to see this security leak seald asap. Since it is been going on for months I am confident, you had enough time to work on a solid solution to kill this bug.
Thank you Samsung
