How to hide apps, photos, and text messages on your Android Phone


For all the great things that smartphones have done for us, they also make it a lot easier for people to get a hold of your private information. A wallet may contain your driver’s license and credit card, but a smartphone has all of that information plus passwords to websites, private photos, conversations, and so much more.

A secure lock screen is the best way to prevent someone from getting into your phone, but what if that fails? We’ve created three guides to help you lock down the most important stuff on your phone.

  1. How to hide apps on Android

  2. How to hide photos on Android

  3. How to hide text messages on Android

Each one of these guides will take you through the steps to hide your personal stuff. We’ll show you how to use your phones’ built-in tools to get the job done, but if that doesn’t work we have a bunch of great app recommendations. If you take privacy seriously, these guides will make your phone feel much more secure.

Do you worry about your sensitive photos and private information falling into the wrong hands ever again.
