    Anyone know how to remove apps or stock apps from the secure folder? Currently I have gallery, camera, contacts, email, internet, along with espn(for testing). I was testing to see if I could add and remove and app at my discretion, but sadly unable to remove espn from secure folder. Im not sure the purpose of secure folder having apps in two different places.

    I had the same complaint. Let's sat you put Facebook into the secure folder. Facebook will still be readily available in the app drawer without any security. So you have to delete uninstall Facebook and log out. So now its only in the secure folder. Great. But now I can't use Facebook as a edge shortcut. I wish samsung made it to where you can actually use the secured app in the edge shortcut menu so when I click on It, it'll still ask me for my iris, fingerprint, etc. Sorry. This is very hard to explain.

    Its so you can use the two dif accounts with the same app. You can have for example facebook in the secure folder and use a totaly diff acount than you use with the copy that is not in the secure folder.

    To remove a app from secure folder, open the folder press and hold and drag it to uninstall, you cant remove the stock apps that are there already though. This will still leave the other copy of the app that is not in the secure folder installed.

    And what about the Samsung's internet browser? Most people will use the secure folder for the internet browser. Are you going to have two different accounts for that as well?

    It dose not require you to sign into a dif samsung account, otherwise im not sure what you mean. Its basically like another browser. Nothing you do with the copy in the secure folder will ever show up in the version that is not in the secure folder. totaly sep bookmarks, history etc etc

    My email program is in both the secure folder and the insecure location. This means that I get two notifications for every email. I don't wasn't the notification for the secure folder copy. How do I stop it?
