find the app long press on app next click storage then clear data and cache, close it, restart phone try again to setup.

 

look here and take time reading it all secure folder app help

 

 

If your mobile device is rooted or is running a custom ROM, then Secure Folder automatically locks to prevent unauthorized access. If this occurs, you can no longer access data inside Secure Folder.

 

worse case scenario is a full factory data reset and not restore ANY BACKUPS and setup as new device UNTIL SECURE FOLDER WORKS, then restore apps if desired.

I apologize but, once a phone has been rooted there is no way to remove or undo it. This is because the term "rooted" means an unauthorized modification of the device. On a basic level, rooting an Android phone means giving yourself superuser access. A superuser account on Android is similar to an administrator account. It allows more access to the operating system but also more possibility for damage. The result of that action is that you void your warranty, and possibly break your phone permanently. You are also now in charge of keeping track of your own Android maintenance and any system updates are now your responsibility.
