How to create a secure and hidden folder on your Android phone
Your phone isn’t always your own. There’s going to be that time when you hand it to a child so they can watch Peppa Pig for the 787th time, or your spouse wants to show friends vacation trips.
Once it’s unlocked, anything on there is fair game for someone who lets their curiosity get the best of them. But you can make sure that photos, videos, or other files that you’d rather stay private are kept under a digital lock and key. There are several apps that do this, placing a secure folder on your home screen that only you can get to. It’s the easiest way to ensure that certain things you want to be private remain so.
After trying out several options, I landed on three good choices that might help you avoid some embarrassing moments or just give you peace of mind when the family is handing your phone around the table at the next family gathering.
