Android: In any Linux-based operating system, including Android, you can hide files and folders easily by adding a prefix to the file name. If you want an easier interface for this, File Hide Expert is on the job.

The app allows you to easily hide pictures, videos, or any type of file. It immediately removes them from any gallery app that they might otherwise appear in. The Pro version can even disguise itself as a tip calculator, so anyone who gets their hands on your phone won’t realise you have something to hide.

  • Very much like HideitPro (Audio Manager)

    What Id love to see is truecrypt ability. As these only hide things from the novice. I have noticed that phone cleaning apps find the files that have been hidden.

  • Out of curiousity, Does the addition of a “.” in front of the folder name effectively hide folders when connecting to a Mac?
