When secure startup option is enabled, which is supposed to protect the phone before it starts up, has a major security flaw. The phone remains unlocked and continues to display the home screen after the phone is rebooted and PIN/password is entered on the boot up.
Steps for replicating this issue:
This doesn't happen when secure startup is disabled and instead phone asks for the PIN/password for the first time before fingerprint/iris/face recognition options can be used.
Samsung Dev Team, please fix this flaw A.S.A.P.

regardless of u disagree or not, that is the way it is. i've tried on every samsung N OS devices and does the exact same thing that u think it is an issue which isn't. why would put the pin in again after u just did anyway? that is annoying and extra step
I disagreed with userbcMKA9DSlI comment saying it's Android OS feature which isn't true. I have TMobile Revvl that runs on Android 7.0 and it asks for PIN again.
The first time PIN is entered is for decrypting and loading the operating system and the second time is for accessing the home screen. Thus is more secure even though it's annoying to re-enter PIN again.
Ok. It is samsung OS concept. I don't know other manufacturer's concept. However, for Samsung devices, regardless of any OS, that is how secure startup work. Asking pin or pattern or password one time and then goes to home screen.
this is samsung forum so dont compare with other manufacturer's devices. what's the point of it. if u like the other manufacturer's features, go for that instead of complaining to have the samsung the same way as others. nothing to really argue about in this matter. i dont even know why u r so caught up on this useless feature. we all use some kinda screen lock method anyway....
