Thankyou for letting us know Samsung is aware of this annoyance and will remove the notification we see after each restart.  

I was just about to start researching the best method for deleting the "secure folder".  Before this notification began appearing, I didn't even know I had a Secure Folder on this S21.  

But I will wait a few more weeks to see if Samsung removes this "Secure Folder Locked" notification...making the phone work as it was before September.

Thanks again.  BTW...please let those in this How to get rid of secure folder locked notification permanently? - Samsung Community thread know Samsung is aware.  It's an older/longer thread on this subject, with lots of frustrated Samsung customers.

Its actually a security risk for a different reason. The persistent notification is annoying enough that is an incentive to unncecessarily unlock and decrypt the folder and leave it unlocked when they have no need to access it at that time. It defeats the point of having an additional level of encryption inside android if it is going to remain unencrypted most of the time.
