Samsung also provided a description of the Samsung Blockchain through its website. The firm claimed that through the Samsung blockchain, all data is saved by the users is kept encrypted, which is protected by a private key.
It is only the users that have access to the private keys so there are zero chances of the data being compromised and then accessed by third-parties.
It has been confirmed that the Private Share functionality has been featured in the latest Galaxy S21 flagships. The functionality is very unique and useful for users who are sending their personal data over to others.
Through the Private Share feature, the users have the ability to set a timer giving a date and time when the date will be deleted from the recipient’s phone.
The Private Share feature also places restrictions over the recipient’s phone so they cannot re-share the date with someone else. On top of that, the feature also disables the screen capturing feature for the receiver’s smartphone so they cannot take a screenshot as well.
Samsung has confirmed that in order to develop the feature, it has adopted encryption technology that is based on blockchain networking.
