Published

Galaxy Watch 4

Android is great for most applications and multitasking, and for phones and tablets, you can quickly switch between the last two used apps by double-clicking the all-view button.

And with Samsung choosing the Wear OS for its smartwatches this year, faster app changes are now available for Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.

For previous Galaxy watches using Tizen, you can only double-click the home button to switch to the last application used on the face of the clock.

For new Samsung watches, you can double-click any home button to switch to the previous app you opened, and then double it again to return to the original one. It works as basic as it does on Android phones and tablets, and it’s very simple.

Don’t Miss:

Switching apps on Galaxy Watch 4 using the home key

The home key is not provided for switching to the last application used on a double press, but it is easy to change that.

  • First, open the Settings app in your Galaxy Watch 4/Watch 4 Classic by swiping down the screen and touching the cache icon.
  • Scroll down and tap Advanced features, then navigate to customize the keys.
  • Here, simply tap the Double-press option under the Home key tab and select Go to the most recent app.

Of course, if you want to assign the action of pressing the home key to one of the other, you can choose from many other options. You can customize it by pressing and holding the home/power key, and the normal background button is reset.

How to create and use Secure Folder in Samsung Galaxy

Samsung secure folder 1.9.10.27 update

Samsung Galaxy phones come with a Secure Folder feature for enhanced data protection. It works as a dedicated compartment in your Galaxy smartphone where you can store different kinds of files (photos, videos) and installed applications.

The Knox technology provides layers of security and privacy, not only to protect users but also to give them a choice in what they want to secure. For those who want to keep their most personal information separate and safe, there’s Secure Folder.

Photos, videos, and files stored in Secure Folder won’t be accessible in regular apps. If you need them, you have to access the Secure Folder – authentication required. It takes the security and user privacy to a whole new level and the data is secured by Samsung on-device.

Secure Folder can keep your most private data such as calendar schedules and contact info, as well as notes, photos, videos, files, and even apps. You can even encrypt the Secure Folder to keep your apps and data even more locked down until the next time you open the folder.

Samsung One UI Secure Folder

You can find Secure Folder in your apps.

The first time you open it, you’ll have to set your lock type to either a PIN, pattern, or password, with fingerprint authentication can be enabled as well. Anything you create within the Secure Folder will be automatically stored here, but you can also move data here at any time.

For instance, if you want to keep a copy of your driver’s license, you can take a photo of it using the Camera app within Secure Folder, or you can pick a photo in your Gallery, tap the options menu (the three dots) and then select ‘Move to Secure Folder.’
