Are there apps on your device that you want to keep private? If so, it is easy to hide both standard and user-installed apps on your Samsung Galaxy phone. We’ll show you how to do it using a built-in function.

Hide apps on your Samsung Android phone
To start hiding apps, go to your Galaxy phone’s home screen. There, tap and hold on any blank space. In the menu that opens, tap “Settings”.
When the Settings page opens, scroll down and tap on “Hide apps”.
You will see a “Select Applications” screen. Here, choose the apps you would like to hide by tapping on them. When you’ve made your selections, tap “Done.”
And that is. Your chosen apps are now hidden.
Later, you can unhide your apps by accessing the same “Hide Apps” menu, selecting your hidden apps, and choosing “Done.”
That’s all about it.
For even more privacy when sharing your phone with others, try locking an app on your Android device.
