    I fail to understand how literally everyone forgets to mention that Samsung Secure Folder is only available on knox-enabled devices running Android 7. I got an A20s hoping to get back some data that I had put in Secure Folder thinking that it'd work. While the A20 is knox-enabled, the A20s is NOT. What was Samsung thinking?

    I hope to access SF and dump the data into google drive from there and continue to just use that, because this has been a super letdown.

    My question is, Is there a way to do access Secure Folder online?

    Are there any other solutions. I do not have the previous phone with me anymore so cannot access SF on that. The new one is an A20S.

    No, you need a device that supports Knox.

    This part confuses me. Are you trying to recover data from a previous device that failed? Isn't secure folder stored locally on the device? Wouldn't you need to unlock the secured folder and copy the data out of it from the original device in order to access it on a new device?
