EXCLUSIVE: Samsung preps ‘Message Guard’ feature for older Galaxy devices, third-party messaging apps



Samsung Message Guard

Samsung Message Guard is currently limited to the Galaxy S23 series, while our sources told us that this feature is under preparation for older Galaxy devices and will work across third-party messaging apps other than Samsung Messages and Messages by Google apps.

Currently, the Samsung Message Guard feature works on just Samsung Messages and Messages by Google apps on the Galaxy S23 devices, without the ability to work across third-party messaging applications. As the company begins preparation, several older Galaxy users will get it before 2023 ends.

To make it happen, the company is closely working with prominent social media platforms to let Samsung Message Guard keep your phone’s messaging apps protected from zero-click exploits. Firmware updates will add support on compatible devices, while app updates will make it accessible.

As of now, our sources lack information about eligible devices for the feature, but we will keep you updated as soon as any new and authentic input arrives. Several Galaxy devices are running Android 13-based One UI 5.1, which should be eligible for the Message Guard feature.

Thanks to the award-winning Samsung Knox, Galaxy smartphones and tablets already feature industry-leading security and privacy protections across the user interface. The Knox suite introduces end-to-end protection across every layer of hardware and software, as well as real-time threat detection.

During the Galaxy Unpacked, the company revealed that Samsung Message Guard is an advanced “sandbox,” or a kind of virtual quarantine.

Samsung Message Guard checks the file bit by bit and processes it in a controlled environment to ensure it cannot infect the rest of your device.
