Hey, I recently came across these few terms and would like to know their meaning, usage and differences between them.

Also, currently I only use S Secure in my A51 to lock my apps, and I see that new version of OneUI is not supporting S Secure. Hence knowing about different options would be better.
Please share your information and experiences.
Thank you

S Secure is used to lock apps just like a normal app lock .
Or you can mask a particular app ... means you can hide it!

Secure folder - you can say it as a second space which creates a copy of apps ...
Secured by Knox .
You need to enter password to access secure folder .

Altz life is a feature introduced to switch between normal app and secure folder copy fastly !

But using Secure folder eats up extra space for duplicating Core Android apps... I don't like it 😑
