Google has introduced Safe Folder features for Android file management apps that safely hide content.

Back in June, it was reported that Google was developing a new feature called Safe Folder for files management apps where users could hide sensitive private material. At the time, the feature was still in development, and Google did not say when it would be officially launched. But now, the company has announced a beta testing experience for Android users, which is expected to be pushed to more users in the coming weeks.

Google said it decided to develop a new feature called Safe Folder, aware of the widespread need for a password-protected way to store mobile phone data to avoid accidental access or deletion.

This feature provides an encrypted folder based on a 4-bit PIN for Android users and automatically locks out after leaving the file management app. When you return again, the file manager will prompt you to enter the PIN again.
