After the latest update for S20, whenever the phone is restarted i have an icon on my screen for 'Secure Folder' that i can't get rid of?
I'm not sure if this will work @Leozin
Daily Driver > Samsung Galaxy s²² Ultra 256Gb in Phantom Black.
The advice I offer is my own and does not represent Samsung’s position.
I'm here to help. " This is the way. "
Thanks man i already do that but the message doesnt go away whenever the phone is restarted. I even leave the secure folder off by default.
Anyone with this problem?
Hi, @Leozin. I've tested this and the advice given in the thread below (effectively, you just need to turn off the notifications via the Secure Folder Settings whilst logged into Secure Folder) remains relevant. This thread is from the US Community:
Please let me know whether following these steps enables you to switch off the notifications.
Hi Paul, thank you very much for the reply. I already tried that and did not work. I rechecked everything again as prints attached and I'm still receiving the same message from the secure folder and even notifications when secure folder is off. I logged into my account to reply you and the secure folder notified me in parallel 🤣 this is ridiculous!
That topic is from 2020 anyway, was a previous version of android. The last "safety update" in august was the one that caused this major security problem.
Don't have a solution, but am having the same issue. Phone was updated this morning and now I get the same stupid warning about logging into my secure folder. Something in this update changed something and it is annoying. Hopefully more people will see this and have a solution.
I dont know how this is not an issue to more people... i had bank apps and other stuff in the secure folder and had to uninstall because of this.
I have exactly the same issue on my s21 ultra. Extremely annoying!!!
It seems that the geniuses at Samsung came up with yet another stupid useless unnecessary pointless update just for the sake of job security! These stupid updates only make things worse. I really don't understand how these morons don't use their common sense when creating an annoying pop up that takes away the security of the secure folder by pointing it out.
