Are there apps on your device that you want to keep private? If so, it’s easy to hide both stock and user-installed apps on your Samsung Galaxy phone. We’ll show you how to do that using a built-in feature.
Once you hide an app, it disappears from your app drawer and home screen. However, it’ll still show up in your phone’s Settings app.

Hide Apps on Your Samsung Android Phone
To start hiding apps, access your Galaxy phone’s home screen. There, tap and hold any blank space. In the menu that opens, tap “Settings.”
When the Settings page opens, scroll down and tap “Hide Apps.”
You’ll see a “Select Apps” screen. Here, choose the apps you’d like to hide by tapping them. When you’ve made your selections, tap “Done.”
And that’s it. 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 there is to it.
For even more privacy when sharing your phone with others, try locking an app on your Android device.
