*You can hide a photo by simply renaming the photo. Use a file manager app or your own File Manager to find the photo, long press on it and select the option to rename it. Change the file extension to something that corresponds to the other format, such as “.txt” or “.dat”. The photo will still be on your phone, but won’t be visible in your gallery or as a photo file*

Note : that these methods may only provide minimal privacy, but they are not completely private. If someone has access to your phone or knows where it might be, they can still find hidden photos It’s always a good idea to use additional security measures like a secure lock screen pattern, PIN, or fingerprint/face unlock to keep your device safe.

If your phone doesn’t have the inbuilt option, you can download a third-party app like “Vaulty” or “Keepsafe” etc. from the Google Play Store. These apps allow you to create a safe, password-protected space where you can store your personal photos and videos. Know more …
