New Delhi. Smartphone maker Samsung on Monday introduced the 'AltGLife' privacy feature developed in India for its selected handsets in the country. Right now it will be available after software updates in the company's Galaxy A71 and A51.

Also, photos and videos will be automatically stored in private folders based on the customer's usage. The company said that the AltGLife feature will be available in the Galaxy A71 and Galaxy A51 after a software update on 10 August 2020.
According to a survey by Samsung, children born in the mid-90s to early 2,000s keep personal photos, apps and chats on their phones that they do not want to share with their parents or anyone else. The company's senior director of Indian operations (mobile business) Manu Sharma said that this feature would remove the concern of customers who generally feel uncomfortable giving their phone to someone else due to personal data. He said that this is the first such innovative technology of the mobile industry. It has been developed keeping in mind the need of the customers. According to the statement, this feature has been developed in India.
