You can keep the files you want away from others. All critical data can be stored in that folder, including photos, apps, and log-in details, to name a few. We will show you how to set up a secure folder on your Samsung Galaxy S8.

Store all the files you want

There are many third-party apps you can download for this purpose. However, you can keep the secure folder on your Samsung Galaxy S8 invisible. In other words, if you like, you can keep it away from the app’s screen. You can set up a password, PIN, or any other option that will allow you to unlock the folder. If you keep work files on your device, you can improve security even more. For example, you can use iris scanning to unlock the secure folder. Pretty cool, right?
