How to Hide photos on OPPO Smartphone
The following are step by step ways to hide photos on OPPO phones.
- First, please open the photo gallery in your Oppo.
- Then you will see a collection of photos that can be displayed in the gallery.
- To make settings in the gallery click on the bottom menu, which is “Image Set”
- Then continue by clicking on the menu “More Image Sets”
- A list of albums that you have will appear.
- If you want to hide the album, just remove the check mark. And vice versa later if you want to display the album again.
The following method we will use a little trick, namely by using the system from Android itself. Android will not display data to the public when the folder has a punctuation point in front of the folder name. The trick is to enter your OPPO file manager. Then find where your photo folder is stored. Maybe this should be with a little knowledge of the Android file manager.
Then rename the folder by adding a dot for example. Drawing and then saving. Check whether the photo album appears in your gallery. To bring it back, just remove the dot. Note: this method can also hide files.
This way we will use the application from the Play store. Namely named Keep Safe. The Keep Safe application will isolate the album that we have marked so that it does not appear in the gallery, so be careful not to open your Keep Safe carelessly.
Additionally Keep Safe also provides features to secure your photos by uploading to their Cloud Service. So even if the data on your cellphone is lost, the photo remains safe on their server. Keep safe there are two versions, namely free and paid. Please buy their pro version to get more complete features.
