3 Ways to Secure Important Data on OPPO Reno8 T with Privacy Features

Gadgetren – To maintain user privacy, OPPO has presented various features that can secure important data on the Reno8 T.

The data security feature that is present in ColorOS 13 on the Reno8 T comes with three different sections including Private Safe, App lock and Hide apps. Private Safe allows users to hide data so that it cannot be accessed by anyone who does not have permission.

Data that can be hidden with the Private Safe feature is then divided into four categories consisting of Images and videos, Audio, Documents, and Other Files. With this folder separation, of course, it makes it easier for users to find hidden data by category.

The Images and video folder allows users to hide photos and videos. Then Audio will contain sound data both recordings, songs, conversations, and others that have been hidden.

The Documents category is usually a hiding place for document data such as doc, docx, pdf, and others. Then Other Files is used to hide data that does not enter from the three categories of folders.

However, before you can do this, the Private Safe feature on the Reno8 T must first be activated via the menu available on the Settings page.
