To put apps in a Secure Folder on your Samsung Android phone:

Go to Settings and select “Biometrics and security.”Tap on “Secure Folder,” then “Lock type.”Choose between Pattern, PIN, Password or a biometric option like fingerprint or iris, and create that password. That said, so if if you have a secure folder you can enabled it by navigating to settings if you don't have regret to say this. but it's not availble or compatible from you're Device. Hope you understand help you with it! 😁

I'm guessing the "Secure Folder" option is incompatible with my A21s device, as it only contains these few settings under biometrics and security options. However, are there any other options? So I'd be able to restrict access to a particular app?

Or should I simply download a third-party app from the Samsung/Play store? Screenshot_20210821-005930_Settings_63811.pngScreenshot_20210821-005906_Settings_63810.png

Oh we have a same phone, but the "Secure folder" is not compatible in Galaxy A21s.
