    The Galaxy S20 Ultra has a feature called "Secure Folders" that let you keep private apps and files in a folder that can only be accessed with a special pass code. You can set the pass code to be a PIN number, pattern, password, or fingerprint.

    Follow these steps to create a Secure Folder on the Galaxy S20 Ultra:
    • Open Settings
    • Tap "Biometrics and Security"
    • Tap "Secure Folder"
    • Agree to the Terms & Conditions
    • Use fingerprint unlock or your account password to proceed
    • Choose what methods can unlock your secure folder
    • Tap "Next" and Confirm your preferred pass code
    You can choose your own name and icon for the secured folder by pressing the 3 dots in the top right. Once this is complete your Secure Folder will be added to your Home Screen or you can find it in the full app list by browsing to "Secure Folder" (or whatever custom folder name you provided)

    The Secure Folder will automatically lock the next time your screen times out. If you want to lock your folder immediately, you can tap the 3 dots at the top right of the Secure Folder and select "Lock and Exit". Alternatively in the Secure Folder settings you can select "Auto Lock Secure Folder" and choose how often it locks (ranging from immediately to 5/10/30 minutes to when the phone restarts).

    How to Access a Secure Folder on the Galaxy S20 Ultra:
    There are two ways to open a Secure Folder on the Galaxy S20 Ultra:
    1. Using the pass code with which you created the Secure Folder
    2. Resetting the Secure Folder lock by signing into your Samsung Account
    To do the latter you can simply incorrectly enter your Secure Folder pass code and then choose "Reset". You'll be prompted for your Samsung Pass account password or your biometric fingerprint unlock.
