Google Play Store My app issue

Are you having trouble viewing your photos and videos in the Samsung Gallery app? If so, you might need to enable the Download Manager option on your phone. This option allows the Gallery app to access all the files on your phone, including the ones you take with the Camera app, download from the internet, or capture from other sources.

If you don’t turn on the download manager option, you might face some annoying problems such as your pics and videos might be visible in other apps, like My Files or other gallery apps, but not in the Galaxy Gallery app.

When you tap on a picture or video in the Gallery app, it might disappear or get deleted after a “Loading image file” pop-up pops up. In addition, if you take a photo or video with the Camera app, it might look messed up in the Gallery app (but it might look fine when you zoom in).

One UI 6.1 secure Folder issue

Users of Galaxy smartphones running Samsung‘s One UI 6.1 have reported that they are unable to delete the Secure Folder app after installing its update. 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.
