It’s more important than ever to keep your private images private but without deleting them entirely from your phone. With Android, there are a few different ways to hide your photos and images, even if you don’t have the benefit of Samsung’s Secure Folder.

How to hide Photos and Images on a Pixel

Unlike other smartphones that feature additional features like a Secure Folder, stock Android requires you to do a bit more work to hide images and files. You’ll need to create a new folder with a specific name and then move the necessary files and images over to that folder.

  1. Open the Files app on your Pixel.
  2. Tap the Hamburger Menu button in the top left-hand corner.
  3. Select the name of your device from the menu.
