Do you use third-party vault apps on your Android? If yes, then it’s time to remove all third-party apps. Recently, Google launched a new feature on its Files By Google application known as ‘Safe Folder’. The Safe Folder acts as a password-protected vault where you can keep private files.

It’s a password-protected vault where users can keep documents, sensitive files, private photos, private videos, etc. The data stored on the ‘Safe Folder’ can only be accessed by a 4-digit PIN code. The feature is already available in the beta version of Files by Google, and it will soon be available on the stable build.
