Hi so the only option is to just Uninstall the Secure Folder? That will then take any Pin number out of the equation for my trade in?

@userRhqs5imH4h Yes uninstalling it will remove any PIN needed for secure folder. 

For the phone in general, you should remove the Samsung account, remove the Google account from Phone settings -> Accounts and backup. Then you can do a factory reset.
