Forgot Secure Folder PIN:

  • Force restart: Hold Power + Volume Down for 7 seconds.
  • Check for software updates.
  • Wipe Secure Folder cache: Settings > Apps > Secure Folder > Storage > Clear cache.
  • Reset Secure Folder: Settings > Biometrics & security > Secure Folder > three dots > Settings > Reset Secure Folder (WARNING: ERASES ALL DATA).
  • Contact Samsung Support: https://www.samsung.com/us/support/contact/.


Prevent future lockouts:

  • Use a strong PIN.
  • Back up data to cloud.
  • Enable biometrics for Secure Folder.
