Enable Samsung Gallery Labs:

  • Tap the 3-dot menu button in the bottom-right corner.

    • You should see a toast notification saying that Gallery Labs has been enabled.
  • Go back to Gallery settings.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the list where you should see the Gallery Labs option.

Move photos to Secure Folder:

  • Select the photos, videos, or albums that you want to move to Secure Folder.
  • Tap the More button in the bottom navigation drawer.

If you are using it for the first time, you will have to set up a Secure Folder by granting it the necessary permissions and entering a password/pattern/PIN lock.
