Get rid of "SD card encryption" notification

JUMP TO SOLUTION

I have the Galaxy S9+ and after encrypting my SD card I now have a notification that won't go away and I can't turn off.

 

I don't need to constantly be reminded of this since I'm the one who encrypted the card. 

 

Anyone know if this can be turned off please?

The foolowing thread describes how to dismiss it until reboot, but it is still annoying if the phone is set to reboot every night:

You can't unless you decrypt it. Welcome to Samsung.

Good afternoon @AYColumbia

 

Have you attempted to clear the notification by tapping on it? Or does it show every time you boot up the phone?

The only thing I can do is press the notification, slight swipe left to access icon menu that allows me to snooze for 2 hours and that's it. 

 

If you long press and select the Details menu. You then can't turn off the specific notification at all and can only set the priority to Low.

Any change to the notification when phone is placed in safe mode?

Same behavior in safe mode.

Are you able to test the SD card in a different phone to see if the same notification has the same behavior?

The card is encrypted so even if I had another phone it wouldn't be readable. When it was NOT encrypted, there was no notification. It only started AFTER I encrypted the card. I have no issues with the card and the phone reads/writes to it just fine.

I think this is just a bug if you ask me. If anything, the reverse should be true, i.e., the notification should show when the card is NOT encrypted to let the user know they're at risk. So as it is, IMHO, it really doesn't make sense.

When I connect the phone to my computer, I can copy to/from phone just fine too so everything phone-wise is working fine.
