When to Uninstall Secure Folder?
Placing your important files inside the Secure Folder is highly recommended to ensure that they’re protected. In fact, it is deemed as the safest place to place sensitive files and documents because it is protected by the defense-grade Samsung Knox security platform that encrypts all your saved data.
However, there are just certain instances when things don’t work as intended and thus for some reason, the Secure Folder doesn’t work as intended. If performing basic tweaks won’t work, then deleting and resetting the Secure Folder can be considered as the last resort.
Thus, Samsung made the uninstall and reset commands available from the Secure Folder settings menu. If necessary, then you can just move your files out of the Secure Folder before uninstalling it.
You can always set up the Secure Folder app whenever you find the need to use it again on your device.
And that’s how to uninstall the Samsung Secure Folder on the Galaxy Z Flip4 smartphone.
