Please make it so the notification stating the secure folders needs to be unlocked to receive notifications can be dismissed and removed from the drop down.

There are security reasons to not unlock your secure folder after a reboot every time, and having the notification there is just calling attention to that you have secure folder setup.

Yes, but it calls attention to the fact that you have a secure folder. Something that someone else may see and try to find what it is, or what's in it

If you have a secure folder who cares. They still need a pin. Also if you have someone watching your phone the moment you turn it on there is a matter of another issue

Yes, but the once unlock 1 time after a reboot the secure folder is only soft encrypted and no longer hard encrypted.

There is software available that can break the soft encryption. Which is why it is better to only unlock the secure folder if you need to. It is also why if you ever have the opportunity to turn off your device before it is taken from you it increases the security.

I agree with this. Part of the security of having a secure folder comes from it not being obvious to anyone who happens to look at my phone.

Agree as well. There was a question about this in the survey and I answered they should get rid of the notification after each reboot. Hopefully others did too.
