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
I'm not sure what phone you're using, but on both my Note 8 and S22U once I type in the pin "to unlock secure folder notifications" I still have to use biometrics or the pin to unlock the folder. Perhaps it's because I have Autolock when the screen turns off, turned on?
I just updated the phone from S9+ to S23+.
Honestly, this is more of a downgrade. Writing here to add my name to the list, in case someone is counting.
Can't get rid of this particular notification, unless I turn off all notifications.
Can't use a dedicated fingerprint to unlock Secure Folder.
Can't unlock the screen once my fingerprint is scanned or face seen (I need to swipe again).
At least it is realistic to number the versions backwards, because S23+ (916) is clearly a downgrade from S9+ (965) in terms of software. Soon I'd wish my S8 battery would still hold up.
Still no fix for this! Why oh why, samsung?!
1. They don't view it as a problem.
2. They don't read their own forums.
3. There was a change Google instituted in a security update that forced this issue.
You can get replacement batteries for the S8 on eBay.
Just got the problem since May's update (s23). Cannot access secure folder, cannot reset password, and the notification is always there on lock screen and in notofication bar. So annoying... Please fix. Should I root android and remove secure folder app?
Samsung please read.
The purpose of the SECURE FOLDER is supposed to be SECURE and PRIVATE.
Ultimately, it is up to the individual user to decide whether or not to have these these notifications
When we want to access the Secure folder we would unlock it, we do not need any reminder that the SECURE FOLDER is locked.
Samsung please include a function to turn ON/OFF the "Secure folder locked" notification after rebooting the phone.
No need to root. Just sign out of your Samsung account and you can uninstall secure folder.
Just had my phone update to Android 13 & instantly had this issue. I managed to get rid of it though.....
Have to go into the secure folder with unlock pattern or password, then click the 3 dot menu, settings, Notifications and Data, app notifications, deselect Android System Intelligence (may need to show system apps if not already). After rebooting, the annoying notification is gone!
