Secure Folder Description

Nowadays, everyone walks around with a small computer in their pocket that we all call a smartphone. Because most of us carry personal information from work, essential files, and private information like pictures and contacts, it's even easier for people to steal your information or snoop through your phone when you're not around.

I recently discovered an app developed for Samsung users called Secure Folder that will make sure that all of your private information is stored away in a hidden folder in the cloud. If you're anything like me and forget where you leave your phone all the time, then you may want to download this gem from the play store as soon as possible!

Backup Apps And Folders

I assumed that I would only be able to backup files and pictures to Secure Folder, but I was surprised to find that all of my apps can easily be secured as well! There are so many different apps on my phone and some of them contain sensitive information that I don't want just anyone to see, so it's a comfort that if someone steals or snoops through my phone, I won't have to worry about them seeing anything I don't want them too.

Easily Recoverable

If you're worried about how you would recover your information if your phone should be stolen or malfunction in some way, have no fear! The developers at Samsung have made it simple to log into your Secure Folder account from a new device and simply click the recover button to bring all of your files and apps flooding back.

If your device should be stolen, your information is secured by a method of your choosing including a pin, pattern, or biometric lock. The thief will either be so frustrated that they break your phone or discreetly return it in a best-case scenario.

Hide Secure Folder

You can even hide your secure folders so they cannot be seen at all on your device. All you have to do is select the option to hide the folders containing the information you want to secure and you will be the only one that knows they're there!

Secure Folder has given me peace of mind that I never thought I could have with my Samsung device. I am known in my family for leaving my devices places that I should not, so now I won't have to fear someone seeing personal information or photos!
