I am telling you what the reason is and why is this happens, If you want to hide data by using an application.
It encrypts the data and sometimes junk cleaner application removes your encrypted data, junk cleaner application detects encrypted data as junk files because encrypted data can’t be executed by any file that’s why encrypted data become hidden.
That’s why I preferred to use this trick, easy to use, and very useful trick.
How to Hide Files in Android Without Any App
Ø Open File Manager (I am using Es file manager)
Ø Choose any file or folder you want to hide.
Ø Click to rename.
Ø So rename that file or folder with a name starting with a dot “.”
Folder name: Video is visible.
When inserting a dot (.) – .video will be hidden.
That’s it after inserting a dot in the starting of any file or folder name, this will not showing in the gallery and all applications until you unhide the file or folder by removing dot(.) from the starting of the file or folder name.
How to Unhide
- · Open File Manager
- · Go to settings and check “show hidden files”.
- · Locate your Hidden File or Folder.
- · Remove dot(.) from starting the name of the hidden file or folder.
That’s it… Now you can hide or unhide any file or folder without using any software.
