Why do I have a popup saying I have 'content hidden. Click here to view secure folder'.
And....ummmmm
What's the point of hiding something if you're gonna have a VISUAL reminder of it pop up on your phone alerting everyone that you have something hidden????
How to get rid of that and just go to the secure folder when I want to?

Ummmm... Because you put a pass code on it.
And if you configured your settings, you can turn off notification for it.

You don't have to actually have anything hidden in it.
The notification appears to come up when an app in secure folder has an update.

I don't understand why football scores that used to pop up in my notification bar, are now in the secure folder and I have to login to the secure folder to see them.
I haven't put them there.
Last week they were in the notifications bar.
I see the football there now but it directs me to the secure folder.

I found that after signing into the play store from within the secure folder I started getting baseball notifications. You can go into notification settings and turn them off.

Once I get all my apps installed in there I think I'll log out of the play store inside secure folder.

These keep popping up in my notification bar. IDK why or how this started. How do I make it stop?
I DO want things like football scores as they play to show up like they used to. But for some reason, they just started to come from the secure folder.

HOw do I fix all of this?

Edit apps, remove the ones you don't want.
They don't go away just hide.

They just hide from the main screen in secure folder.
They're still in there when you go to settings /apps. Idk how they got in there. I didn't put them in there.
How do I get apps OUT of the secure folder?

Most likely you can only get 3rd party apps out of secure folder.
You can turn off notifications in secure folder.
Worst case, move your secure data out, clear secure folder data.

From within the Secure folder, tap My Files, tap Internal Storage, select the file you want to move out and Tap, select the location to Share/or Move it to.
