General News Files by Google now has a Safe Folder for your private files
Advertisement
#1
Several phone manufacturers ship their phones with a bunch of their own apps, one of which is a File Manager app. If you don’t like it, you can grab one from the scores available on the Play Store. You can also grab Google’s own Files by Google which was originally made for Android Go devices but is now available for all. If you already have it, then it will interest you to know that the app is getting a new feature called Safe Folder.

Safe Folder as the name says is a place for users to keep their private files. It is similar to the Lockbox available on OnePlus’s File manager app.

To set it up, you will be asked to create a PIN. If you forget the four-digit PIN, you can’t recover the files there. If you also lose or change your device, you also can’t get access or transfer the files as they are not backed up to the cloud.

The new feature is available on version 1.0.323 of the app according to Android Police and you will find it under Collections. The tech website also says clearing app data or uninstalling the app also means you lose all the files in the folder.
