Back in June, we reported that Google is ditching the rumored Safe Folder feature. It was expected to offer Android users a secure space to store their files, protected by a PIN or a password. Now the tables have turned, as the company has officially announced that it’s rolling out Safe Folder in Files by Google, starting today.
“Safe Folder is a secure, 4-digit PIN-encrypted folder that protects your important documents, images, videos and audio files from being opened or accessed by others. The folder is securely locked as soon as you switch away from the Files app, so none of its contents can be accessed when the app is in the background,” reads the description on the official blog of the company.
