Hide your pictures/videos with one fullstop!


I know the title sounds far fetched but it is totally possible given you have an Android device. In this post we will learn exactly how to do that.

So first of all this doesn’t need any special apps or root or any fancy stuff. This can be done with the default file manager that came with your phone. The following steps will help you hide those private images/videos on your device from prying eyes once and for all. Just remember this doesn’t password protect your files.

  1. Move your photos to a new folder. May be on your device or SD card.
  2. After moving them, just rename that folder with a full stop at the beginning.
  3. For example rename the folder as .PICS

Now all your photos are hidden,  to view them just go to file manager> settings and tap on show hidden files.
Now your photos are visible in the file manager!
To un-hide them, just remove the .   and they are visible again.
