Samsung Private Share and Knox Vault: Allowing you to maintain a Shared Personal and Business Smartphone

If you’ve ever broken into a cold sweat after almost posting a work file to your social media or accidentally shared a selfie on your work account, then you know the comedy of errors that is having a shared personal and business phone.

In fact, a recent BDG Studios/ OnePoll survey of over 1,000 Gen Zers from across the US found that 61% of them store work files on their personal devices.

While seemingly convenient, mixing up business and pleasure can expose you and your data to some serious security risks as well as dramatically increase your chance of a professional gaffe.

When asked in the same poll, 22% of respondents admitted to accidentally sending a coworker or boss an embarrassing text or personal message intended for a family member or friend.

These mobile misfires ran the gamut from slightly embarrassing to utterly cringe worthy, with participants claiming to have sent grocery shopping lists and even unfavorable opinions about fellow coworkers.

While embarrassing, these errors can seem tame in comparison to mistakenly leaking privileged work information. According to our poll, only 39% of respondents claimed to immediately delete pictures of sensitive and private data such as SSNs, bank information and work documents.

Fortunately, there are tools that can help, like Samsung Galaxy’s Private Share. This feature allows users to send pictures, docs, videos and audio files safely through encryption for as long as you want.

Samsung’s Knox Vault also helps keep your data safe at all times, whether you use it for work or fun.

Knox Vault does this by isolating your most sensitive information like PINs and passwords, from the rest of your device so you can feel protected at all times, even when your phone is turned off.

As Sri Lanka’s No. 1 smartphone brand, Samsung has been awarded the prestigious title of ‘People’s Youth Choice Brand of the Year’ for four consecutive years by SLIM Sri Lanka’s review of the country’s most valuable brands. Samsung’s customer base in Sri Lanka spans across all age groups, with a particular focus on the Gen Z and Millennial segments.
