Hiding Secure Folder

Alright, so I'm in a very sensitive situation where the security provided by the Secure Folder has been incredible. In my situation, I'm not as concerned with the folder being subject to brute force attack- it just needs to be completely undetectable.

I've done pretty well setting it up to be hidden. No notifications, the only access is a hidden and disguised icon. My only concern is the actual settings menu- If you have some idea of the capability of the new phones, you know you can access Secure Folder from the settings menu. Even if you don't have the password to get in, you can see that it's in use.

That would be very, very bad for me.

And it pretty much makes the Secure Folder unusable, because it adds risk. So my question- is there any way, root access or not, to change that settings menu to simply not display the Secure Folder menu? Or move it, or disguise it in some way? I'm open to ideas.

I have a Note8 running the most recent version of Nougat.

I'll be monitoring this thread, if anyone needs more information from me.

Thank you.
