Samsung is busy these days to bring more apps to Google Play, and Secure Folder is the last one to hit Google's app store. First launched with the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7, this app is now available via Google Play, allowing Samsung to push updates to it easier than before, back in the days when Galaxy Apps was needed to do this.

Samsung Secure Folder only works with Samsung handsets, its Google Play page saying about its latest update that "is available for Samsung Mobile with Android 7.0 and above" without mentioning specific models. As it looks at first sight, even lower-end Samsung smartphones and phablets that run at least Android 7.0 should be able to run this app.

Secure Folder creates a private, encrypted space on the device it is installed on. Both data and apps that end up in the Secure Folder space are sandboxed separately, thus gaining an additional layer of security and privacy.

According to its Google Play store page, Secure Folder has been installed more than 5,000,000 times so far. However, it only has been rated by 1,317 users until now, holding a 4.1-star rating.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
