Galaxy S7 Secure Folder app surfaces, it works! [APK]

Samsung introduced the Secure Folder feature with the ill-fated Galaxy Note 7 last year. It’s a protected folder in which users can store files, media, documents, contacts and other personal content completely separate from all of the other content on their device. The Secure Folder does not open until the user authenticates their identity using the fingerprint scanner.

Samsung confirmed last year when it was running the Galaxy Beta Program for the Galaxy S7 that it would release the Galaxy S7 Secure Folder as a downloadable service after Nougat was released. The company started rolling out Nougat for the Galaxy S7 and the Galaxy S7 edge last month and now the Galaxy S7 Secure Folder app has surfaced online. We’ve tried it out and it works! You even get a quick toggle for Secure Folder in the notification shade.

The Secure Folder app is now available for download from our APK page, bear in mind that your handset needs to be running Nougat in order for it to work. You won’t find a listing for this app on the Google Play Store or Galaxy Apps right now because it appears that Samsung hasn’t released it publicly as yet. However, now that a build of the Secure Folder app for Galaxy S7 is floating online, it may not be that long before Samsung officially releases it.

Downloaded APK, tried to use Secure Folder and found the program terrible. Couldn’t remove Calendar app and other apps from the “Secure Folder” for some reason, which leads me to believe the software is buggy. UNINSTALLED.

Look I just tried it on my s7 EDGE Nougat and it worked but I would be happy if files are moved back into their original state where they belong forinstance I moved a video from sd card to secure folder. After that I tried moving it out of secure folder and to my surprise instead of moving it back to it’s original state which is on the sd card, it was moved to the device storage. What if the device is full? I think Samsung should provide options for users wether to move it back to sd card or… Read more »

What is that notification button screen shot, partial screen shot and screenshot bubble

They’re most likely 3rd party shortcuts, as Samsung’s Nougat notification panel supports 3rd party app shortcuts in their notification panel, hence why there is also Shazam there which isn’t a System function

I just downloaded Secure Folder, I have an S7 edge from T-Mobile and it is working fine, but doesn’t this app do the same than private mode, but with the ability of hidding apps too ?

yes but it’s so much easier it’s the next evolution of private mode and my most missed feature from my note 7 hiding apps photos ect being able to hand over my device to a nosey friend without them able to see anything scandalous 😉

What’s the difference between this Secure Folder and older MyKNOX? As far as I can see, they have the same functionality.

I’ve said this SO many times since the Note7 got released. It’s the exact same thing jus called something different. Therefore this functionality has been around for a while and people can still use it by downloading MyKnox instead!

How did you added screenshot toggles? Is it a 3rd party app or this is possible to do in a system?
