So I'm not very tech savvy, to say the least...but I keep finding this "secure folder" ...and I'm told it's on every Samsung device...but it's not on mine....so I'm confused. 

 
Also what's the best free secure folder app for us to use?

Do you have the Secure folder button in your quick panel drop down? You might have to edit your layout and add the button. If you press + hold the icon you will be able to set up Secure folder. Secure folder is pretty powerful just for its integration alone. It is also protected by Knox security, a leader in encryption and privacy. I would use Secure folder if you plan on utilizing a feature like this on your device. 🙂

@Kyle05 Which phone do you have? Older phones running older OS may not have this option. 

In addition to the icon in the Quick panel mentioned by @VerbumVeritum , you should be able to enable it in phone settings -> Secure Folder.

@Kyle05 Ah, it's not available for the A14. Lower priced phones don't get all the features of the S series. See -> https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Other-Mobile-Devices/A14-doesn-t-have-Secure-Folder/td-p/2594146
