How to hide apps in Android [Tip]

If you have a Samsung phone that is running on Android 4.1.2 or higher, then it’s easy to hide apps from the app drawer. By default, all you need to do is to select the “Hide applications” option from your app drawer and that’s it. You can choose the apps that you want to hide and keep them away from unauthorized users.

However, if your phone or tablet’s app drawer doesn’t offer such option, then you’ll need to rely on a third-party application.
