Samsung releases new privacy tool for its Galaxy phones

Samsung, the electronics giant of Korea, is all set to release a new privacy tool that will help its smart phone users to block data from being accessed by those repairing the mobile device. It is actually a maintenance tool that will help users to get relieved from anxiety fears that unsolicited resources will access their personal information.

In simple terms, the tool will help hold photos, messages and contacts along with other types of data, privately secure during device maintenance.

But Samsung will be currently offering this ‘maintenance mode’ only to select the Galaxy series of phones starting with Samsung Galaxy S22. Thus, with the new feature roll out, the company will provide a safe and control mobile experience to all its users.

Samsung Galaxy users need to just activate ‘Maintenance Mode’ in the “Battery and Device Care” segment that is within the “Settings” section and then reboot the device.

Once activated, no one will be allowed to retrieve information from the installed apps, nor they will be allowed to delete any information. Information and accounts created in Maintenance mode will get automatically deleted as soon as the owner takes an exit from the feature.

Already, KNOX platform that offers military grade security is loaded onto all Galaxy series smart phones of Samsung and it offers multi-layered protection against cyber threats and unauthorized access. It works by integrating hardware and software security features, thus safeguarding all areas in the device, enabling perfect control and transparency.

Knox Matrix will be the next security feature that the world’s top smart phone maker will introduce from February next year and they will roll it out across multiple devices.

Hence, Samsung’s commitment to provide the utmost mobile security environments is visible in its deeds.
