Best Apps to Hide Apps
We do so many things on our smartphones such as playing games, watching movies, taking quality pictures, managing our work but sometimes we do those things which require a little bit of privacy as no matter what our smartphone often gets in the hand of someone whom we do not wish to share with such as children, snooping eyes or curious individuals all might be reasons to lock your sensitive Android apps and in this article I have assembled 5 best apps which hide apps on smartphones so that you can be worry-free.
Without wasting any more time lets start the list of the best apps to hide apps on smartphones:-
Top Apps to hide apps
1) Calculator Vault:-
Calculator Vault has been given 4.4 stars out of 5 by 30,806 users.
If you are looking out for the best app to hide apps without rooting your smartphone or without any launcher then this is the first app you should install as it provides all the features one need to hide apps.
This application is an app hider in disguise of a Calculator which no can guess that this is something more than just a calculator.
Just install this app from the Play Store and set the 4 digits password for it which you have to type on the calculator to get the access of the real functions of this app such as app hider, video hider, image hider etc. just below image:-
Open the calculator and type the pin which you had set and click on the icon of the “Hide Apps” which will display all the apps that are installed on your smartphone.
Now comes the tricky part of it, this application does not hide the apps at all instead it makes a clone of the app which you want to hide.
Once you make a clone of the app inside the Calculator Vault, you have to uninstall the real app from your smartphone and operate that app from the Calculator Vault itself.
Remember that you will lose all the data of the real app by uninstalling it from your smartphone.
Technically this is the best app to hide apps but there are some limitations too which are ads which sometimes pops up while using the app and there are some apps which are not supported.
I hope the developer of this app brings some update and fix the issues as soon as possible.
2) C Launcher:-
C Launcher has been given 4.5 stars out of 5 by 907,260 users.
This is one of the finest apps or should I say the excellent launcher to hide the apps.
Just install this launcher from the play store and open it and then all you have to use is the below gesture(Zoom In) to open the hide application window:-
Once you perform the above gesture on the home screen of the launcher you will be asked to set the password to protect.
After setting the password you will be shown the below screen:-
Where you can add multiple apps you want to hide from others and you can access this location from just the above-mentioned gesture and enjoy the privacy you always wanted.
This Launcher does not make a clone of an app and make you uninstall the real application which is a huge plus.
3) Apus Launcher:-
Apus Launcher has been given 4.5 out of 5 by 5,826,012 users.
This is another great launcher to hide apps on your smartphone with a beautiful interface.
Open the launcher once you install it from the play store then open the settings then more settings just like below:-
and then you will find the option of hiding Apps where you can hide apps with a pattern lock:-
There is even a gesture to open the hidden apps folder which is swiping up with two fingers on the home screen.
However, there is one drawback about this launcher which is that it shows advertisement which sometimes irritates but apart from it everything works fine.
With this launcher, you can even lock your app with pattern lock and enjoy its other amazing features.
4) Ace Launcher:-
Ace Launcher has been given 4.4 stars out of 5 by 12,046 users.
A great launcher which has the option of hiding your apps.
To begin with, just install the app from the play store and open it.
After that perform a swipe up gesture with two fingers on the home screen which will display the hidden area where you can hide your apps.
There you will find several other settings such as enabling pattern lock feature, super privacy mode, and others.
Even if you search the app on the app search bar you won’t be able to find the hidden apps which is a great plus.
With this launcher, you can also change the gesture of opening the hidden apps which by default is swiping up with two fingers on the home screen on the settings feature as mentioned below:-
5) Go Launcher:-
Go Launcher has been given 4.5 stars out of 5 by 75,01,433 users.
This launcher has been recognized for so many things and hiding apps is one of them.
Just like the previous one, install the app from the play store and open it.
Once you open the launcher you just swipe to left on the home screen where you will have to open tools as mentioned in the below picture:-
Once you open it you will find the option of hiding apps where you can hide apps with a pattern lock and a recovery email if by mistake you forget the password.
However, there is one thing that I found very interesting is that it also has a feature of intruder selfie when anyone tries to open the hidden apps their selfie will be clicked automatically and it will show you a message that “this guy tried to open your Hide App for 8 times” so that you can know who was the culprit and how many times that person tried to open it.
But with this awesome feature, there is a limitation too which is it is a paid feature but you can use this feature for three days for free.
Apart from hiding the apps, you can enjoy its other awesome features app lock, 10000+ free themes, memory cleaner and many more.
