Samsung officially releases Secure Folder on the Galaxy S7

Galaxy S7

Samsung has officially released a secure folder application for the Samsung Galaxy S7 today, after the leaked version of the application appeared earlier this week (and may also show the Milky Way Samsung Galaxy S8).

Secure folder as an encrypted location to store user personal or sensitive notes, pictures, contacts, applications or files. The application uses Samsung’s Knox security features to lock files within only the password or using biosecurity. The function on the galaxy begins to Galaxy Note 7 days later in the International Galaxy series, but today’s launch marks the safe return of the folder’s usability in the United States.

The only caveat is that you’ll need to be running Android 7.0 Nougat to use Secure Folder, which may or may not be available depending on your carrier of choice. Assuming you’ve got that set, Secure Folder is available now to download from Galaxy Apps.
