    2.To hide apps we need to freeze the apps so they do not run in background and this can be easily with Link2SD app.If these apps do not run in background then no more process is used and this reduces the RAM consumption.Thus, your device can multitask easily.So Freezing apps has 2 benefits like multitasking & hiding of apps.

    3.So whenever you need to unhide a app launch Link2SD app and select "Frozen" by tapping on the filter icon.All frozen apps will be shown log press the app which you want to unhide and select unfreeze.Now you will be able to view the app.

    Hello..
    Its a very simple question you have asked.. I'm here for your solution..
    Go to Home screen where you have stored the apps icons..
    Just hold pressing the Icon for a while, then leave it.. Then it will show the option "Hide" or "Delete"..
    Just choose that the icon will be removed..
    Hope you get it..
    Thanking You..

    Go launcher is a default screen if someone presses your home button it will give them the option of going to home screen where the app will not be hidden and completely visible this is not a solution

    Hello Sir,

    Its very simple to hide any apps in to your device.

    But for this purpose you need an apps called Go launcher ex.

    So my suggestion to you is that first of all you simply have to setup an internet connection on your device.

    After that go to the apps store.

    Here search and download a new apps under the name go launcher ex.

    Once you got the complete download then you have to install it on your device.

    Now you have to open the home screen.

    Select the apps that you want to hide from the home screen.

    After that tap in the options.

    There you will got the option under the name hide apps.

    Simply tap on that option.

    After that refresh your device.

    You will find that the apps was hidden.

    I am, sure that you will got the solution after going through the above information.

    All the best.

    The best way to hide apps,pictures,messages,videos & SMS is to install 'Super vault' app.You can install app from Google Play Store,visit store there open that.In search box type app name & put on search.Once appear tap on that & then on install.After doing that app will start to download once completed device will automatically install that app.Now after installing that do some settings & can use that.You must provide password so that no once can access that app,you can hide apps easily.
