How to change the Bixby key to power menu on your Samsung phone

Published

Samsung Side Key settings

Every smartphone manufacturer has its own virtual assistant. For Samsung phones, the assistant is Bixby. It lets you control your smartphone and select connected accessories. With this, you can easily open apps, check the weather, play music, send text messages, turn down screen brightness, and much more.

Google Assistant is a big competitor of Bixby. Most smartphone users use Google Assistant on their phones. However, every company wants their customers to use the brand’s virtual assistant instead of Google Assistant and Samsung is no different.

By default, newer Samsung phones open Bixby when you hold down the Side key, the key you’d expect to function as a power button. This is very stupid and is frustrating to use. But it’s easy to fix. Here’s how:

  • Tap the Power icon in the top right corner.

  • Toggle on the Power off menu under Press and hold.

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.’
