Samsung replaces My Knox with Secure Folder, now available in Play Store

Recently, Samsung removed the My Knox Security app from their handsets. As it provided layer by layer security in office and home for Samsung smartphones, the app was a sandbox. The app worked as secure space in office, for doing office works. Rather worked as a parental controller and privacy caretaker for those work apps. The App’s working was just like a protector from accidental disclosures.

Secure Folder provides a secure, encrypted space space just like Knox, but also offers much more security options. Now the Secure Folder released in Play Store to avail the app to some more devices, however they are also Samsung devices.
