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 have forgotten the PIN, pattern, or password for your Secure Folder it can be reset using your Samsung account.

Step 1: Open your Secure Folder

Step 2: Enter what you think is the unlock code or pattern

Step 3: Now tap Forgot PIN

Step 4: Tap Reset

Step 5: Enter the password for your Samsung account.

Step 6: Choose another unlock code or pattern and tap Continue.

Getting same annoying notification on my samsung s22 ultra after the recent August 2022 update.. The only way to get rid of this notification is to either restart phone or login to secure folder... But its temporary, this notification will again popup.. Hope it will be fixed asasp

Why when I reply to a poster does it send my post to end of main subject and not attach to the post?

Also no apparent way to remove my post?

I went into my secure folder and opened each app and haven't seen the notification since.  It's only been about 4 hours though...
