I just started using this A12 phone and I can't find the Secure Folder option in settings anywhere. All guides I looked up on the internet show Settings UIs that look nothing like mine — some categories are separated in 3 different others. I really liked that app and the similar apps in the store don't seem to be able to do quite the same things, on top of not looking trustworthy either...

How can I get Samsung's Secure Folder app back?

Actually yes, sorry. I accidentally mistook the letters when typing the post.

At Home screen, just swipe up for "app search" at top ... type "secure" and it should show up

To improve security secure folder data should not be backed up in the cloud hence one of the reasons the feature was removed. If you need to save the data you can do so on another device, preferably encrypted if you feel the data is sensitive enough to warrant extra protection.
