  • Samsung has confirmed a One UI 6.1 issue which means users can’t delete their Secure Folder app.
  • A moderator said that Samsung was working on a Secure Folder app update to address the problem.

Secure Folder is one of the more underrated features on Samsung phones, offering users a PIN-protected folder to store private files. Unfortunately, it seems like some users can’t actually delete the Secure Folder app following the One UI 6.1 update.

A Samsung representative confirmed this issue on the Korean Community forum (h/t: Sammy Fans). The representative noted that the inability to delete Secure Folder was related to a “Google security policy” that was applied to One UI 6.1. The issue affects version of the Secure Folder app.
