Not able to run Secure folder on background, every time that I go out of the folder, it closes all  the apps opened in it.

Hey there and welcome to the Samsung UK Community Forum

This is by design. It is a Secure Folder for a reason. If you had it running in the background and someone took your device, it wouldn't be secure.

Hi there, as piper said this is a security mechanism, its basically the whole point of a "secure folder". it doesnt actually close all your apps but you do have to enter a pin or biometric in again.
hope this helps.

Hi, tks for the reply, but this is not it. On my other phone, i was able to switch between the app opened in the secure folder an the other apps opened on the regular( non-secure) area, simply using the recently opened apps button.

If you press on the 3 dots on the main screen in secure folder then press settings then auto lock secure folder you can change to your desired option

Hi tks for the reply but i've already done it and none of  the options there  allowed me to switch between the secure and no-secure folder without closing it...

I've just made the settings changes as above and was able to navigate away from Secure Folder then, clicking on Recent Apps, was able to go back to Secure Folder without having to input password.

If that isn't what you're after, you need to be clearer on what you mean and I also think you'll be disappointed.

Hi, tks again for the help, i can go back to secure  folder too ,but not to the app i had opened on it, like a banking app... This one will be closed in this process.  What i need is the possibility to switch between the screens of these apps and the other ones opened on non-secure ambient. Just like we can do by taping the app switcher button.
