How to Hide Apps on Android

There are several ways to hide apps on an Android device:

  1. Use a launcher app: Many third-party launcher apps such as Nova Launcher and Apex Launcher provide an option to hide apps. Simply download the launcher app, set it as the default, and you can hide apps using the launcher’s app drawer.
  2. Create a folder: You can also hide apps by putting them inside a folder. Simply create a folder, add the apps you want to hide, and then place the folder on a page that is far away from your other app icons.
  3. Use AppLock: AppLock is a free app that allows you to password-protect individual apps. You can use this app to hide apps from your home screen and app drawer, as well as lock them behind a password.
  4. Enable the ‘Hidden apps’ feature: Some newer Android devices have a built-in ‘Hidden apps’ feature that allows you to hide apps from the app drawer. To enable this feature, go to the ‘Apps’ or ‘App Manager’ section in your device’s settings and look for the ‘Hidden apps’ option.

Note: The methods to hide apps may vary depending on the Android device and its version, so it’s best to check the device’s manual or online support resources for specific instructions.
