Among you there might be someone who used to keep important or confidential files on a smartphone. That can be digital files from personal documents such as birth certificates, family cards, diplomas, etc. Such files can be needed at any time, so some people have a habit of storing them on a smartphone.
Of course, it's only natural that you prepare a special folder to store the files because you can only access such private documents or certain people with your permission.
Therefore, creating a hidden folder can be an alternative option to save the file so that anyone can not access it.
Just like on a laptop or PC, an Android smartphone also supports this feature. In fact, if you are observant, a number of applications and operating systems on your smartphone must have hidden folders. The goal is of course not to be deleted because if the folder part of the system is deleted, the system can be chaotic.
Here's how to make a hidden folder on Android.
So, how to access it?
Still in the File Manager application, you open the settings menu. Next look for the show hidden folder options.
Remember the path where you created the folder. If you are on the right path, you will find hidden folders that are represented the same as general folders but are somewhat transparent.
