How To Easily Hide/Unhide Files And Folders In Your Android Smartphone

Android is the platform which implements more features than any other operating system. Now in this post, i am going to tell you How To Hide Files & Folder In Android. We all require privacy in our contents. As there are many media like our personal pictures, videos and recording which we never want to share with any other person.             


How To Hide Files And Folders In Android

Step 1:

Mostly every android has file explorer in it, but if you don’t have any I recommend you to download Es File Explorer in your android device. Now open your file explorer or file browser.

Step 2:

After successful download, install and launch the app, Now search or find your file or folder which you want to hide from others.

Step 3:

Now select the file or folder and click on rename option.

Step 4:

Now there add “.” (full stop, without quote) at the start of the name (For example if the folder is videos then rename it as .videos ).

Step 5:

As we know our android is Linux based and it will think that this is system file and it will hide that file by default settings of the operating system. Now if you want to open that file or folder then just select Show hidden Files/folder option in your file explorer.

How To Un-Hide Files And Folders In Android Without Any App

Step 6:

If you want to make that hidden file unhidden, then just rename the file by removing “.” from the name.

By this, all your files and folders which you have renamed will be hidden from your file explorer and in your gallery too. And this will defend your data permanently in your android. And you will have no longer fear of illegal access to your content.
