Samsung One UI 3.0 beta locking out Galaxy Z Fold 2 users the same as One UI 2.0 did with Galaxy S10

Published

Samsung already released the One UI 3.0 beta for the Galaxy Note 20 and S20 devices. This beta is also available for several older Galaxy smartphones including Note 10, Galaxy Z Flip, and Galaxy Z Fold 2.

But with the One UI 3.0 rollout bugs have also started to appear and some of them are major that will keep your phone stuck on the lock screen.

Samsung has just begun the first One UI 3.0 beta for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and brings a major bug that does not allow users to unlock their phones after the One UI 3.0 beta installation completes.

Even if the fingerprint is enabled, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is now accepting only PIN codes, password, or any pattern to unlock the device after restarting the device.

This is a serious issue and for your information, it’s not new either because it also occurred with the One UI 2.0 beta on Galaxy S10 devices. Under the lockdown scenarios, users can only unlock their device using the Remote Unlock feature via Samsung account on the web but they cannot change the PIN/pattern/password.

It was also found that factory reset and downgrading to the previous Android version via Smart Switch may also not help on this matter.

After the issue was found in many other smartphones the users have reported it on Samsung’s community page. Although the company has not yet acknowledged this issue until now.

This problem is currently reported on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 smartphones and can also happen in any One UI beta testing device. After founding the issues in the beta, Samsung seems to have halted the One UI 3.0 beta rollout for the Galaxy Z Fold 2 and may resume it once the issue is solved.

On the other hand, the existing One UI 3.0 testers of Galaxy Z Fold 2 may receive a patch to resolve this issue or they’ll have to wait for the beta to restart again.

This issue is mainly affecting flagship devices that recently received the One UI 6.1 update. Due to this issue, users are not able to use this app at their convenience.

However, Samsung has acknowledged the issue with the Secure Folder app in its latest One UI 6.1 update. This issue affects several flagship devices including the Galaxy S23 series, Galaxy S23 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 5, Galaxy Z Flip 5, and Galaxy Tab S9.

According to the community moderator, the issue occurred while integrating the latest Google security policies, resulting in the distribution of a non-deletable version of the Secure Folder app, specifically version 1.9.10.27.

The Korean tech giant is preparing to release a fix to address this problem. Users will be able to download the updated app through the Galaxy Store. To update, simply open the Galaxy Store, search for ‘Secure Folder’, and select the update option.

Users are encouraged to update their Secure Folder app as soon as the new version is available to maintain optimal performance and security of their personal data.

One UI 6.1 folder background issue to be resolved in next Home Up update

Samsung One UI 6.1 Hoem Up new features

One UI 6.1 update offers several new features and Galaxy AI for the Galaxy S23 series as well as some unexpected bugs and changes, particularly in the way folder backgrounds are displayed. But the good news is that Samsung will fix the One UI 6.1 folder background issue with the next Home Up update.

Previously, with One UI 6.0, users had the option to adjust the background blur to a near-transparent 1% using the Home Up Good Lock app feature. However, the recent upgrade to One UI 6.1 has resulted in an unexpected opacity of folder backgrounds.

Users have reported that despite attempts to turn the Home Up feature off and on like a reset, the folder background remains unaffected and completely opaque. This is different from the Apps screen, which still responds to adjustments in HomeUp settings.

In response to these concerns, a community moderator has confirmed that a solution is underway with a new update of the Home Up app. The next update of this Good Lock module will resolve the non-responsive background blur control issue for folders. The update is expected to be available soon and will restore the customization options that users have been missing.
