How to Back Up and Restore Samsung Secure Folder Data on Galaxy M20

We now have the brand new Samsung Galaxy M-series to enjoy. The two newly announced models, the Samsung Galaxy M10 and Samsung Galaxy M20 have launched in India before anywhere else, which shows Samsung’s intention to recapture this market over Xiaomi. Is Galaxy’s M20 your choice as well? You couldn’t have taken any better decision.

The handset Galaxy M20 looks enchanting from the front, even if it has a simple back panel. It feels solid and is comfortable to operate and its specs are all decent. I could even say that the USB Type-C port on an affordable Samsung phone is surely a surprise. And Samsung makes no compromises when it comes to assuring your privacy.

The Secure Folder app, which debuted with the Galaxy Note 7, is included on your device too. It’s a place where you can keep your private files and apps protected using fingerprint authentication. Apps and data in Secure Folder are sandboxed separately on the device and gain an additional layer of security and privacy, thus protecting them from malicious attacks or prying eyes.

The backup and restore feature comes in handy if you switch to a new phone. This lets you upload all the files located in Samsung Secure Folder to the cloud and then download them to a different device. Could this be what you need for your Galaxy M20?
