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.
- Open the Files app on your Pixel.
- Tap the Hamburger Menu button in the top left-hand corner.
Select the name of your device from the menu.
- Tap the three vertical dots in the top right-hand corner.
- Select New Folder.
- Enter .nomedia as the folder name.
