Applock doesn’t guarantees you 100% privacy. Someone who is close to you might ask you to unlock your device and you may get troubled because of that. 

How to hide images without App Lock on android

No need to download any bulky applock or software. While AppLock or any software doesn’t guarantees you full privacy, I’m here with a simple trick that will help you hide images without applock from android. Follow the steps below to hide any image or video from gallery without using software or application:


  1. Android version 5.0 or higher
  2. Root Permissions
  3. ES File Explorer

Step 1:
First of all, you have to go to ES File Explorer and create a new folder in safe location. 

Step 2:
Rename that folder to “.nomedia” without quotes. The folder will disappear after renaming because it is hidden folder. 

Step 3: 

Tap on three vertical lines at top left corner of your screen and open menu.

Step 4:
Enable “Show hidden files”  option as shown below.

 Press back button and that newly created folder will be visible.

Step 5:
Locate those images that you want to hide. Select them and tap on ‘move’ them at once.

Step 6: 
Go to “.nomedia” folder and paste those files there.

Step 7: 
Again open menu and disable “show hidden files” option. The folder and media (images, videos, etc.) inside it will disappear. 

Final Words: 
Hope this trick worked. Now you can go to gallery and check. You will find that the images or videos pasted on that folder are hidden from gallery. 
Note: To unhide those images, perform “step 4” and move files to a different location on SD Card.
