For Samsung Galaxy A10e myFiles app which is already installed on my phone, I go to internal storage then I see .privacy_safe folder. Once opened, it contained 3 things:

  • db folder (had 1 item)
  • account folder (had 0 items), and
  • Files in this directory are very important Please do not delete! file (0 bytes)

the 3 unknown titled files that won't open or can't be found

What is this? Did someone install something on my phone? It won't even let me open anything it just states to search similar in app Play Store.

  • On older Android versions (before 11) every Android app with write storage access permission was able to read/write files in the public internal storage. Some apps were saving their database files there.

    The the file date of the file inside db. Most likely it is the date you used the app the last time that created those files. According to this post the files may belong to an app called "SGallery".
