Method 2-
Hiding secret and personal photos in android phone is now become necessary for any smart phone holder. Previously I have wrote first method about how to hide photos without using any app. Now I came up with another secret way to make your pictures hidden from others, without using any app. A lot of android applications are available on the Google for the purpose of hiding your photos, but some people are not happy with those apps. While some apps have good functions, on the other hand some apps have bugs. So you must have read the reviews before downloading them. Here we have collection of some of the locker apps there at our website, that do better function.

Method to Hide Photos:

First of all open the photo you want to hide, and change its extension. You can do this by simply renaming the photo and changing the file format. Usually pictures are in the extension of jpeg, png or some thing like that. You have to change it to any other name you like. For example you can name the file .anything.
Now save it and launch the gallery of images. You will be happy to see that your personal photo that you want to make locked are now not viewable there in gallery.
You can follow this method for every individual picture you want to hide. For bulk processing you can follow our previous post where I have described Method 1 for multiple images to hide.
