Many users face this problem of limited data and for it to update itself is really annoying because it is not something that really matters at the moment.

Hide files on your device

There is a simple way to hide files in your device.
You don't need a third party tool to hide files on your android smartphone.

There are several reasons to hide files on your android devices, which ever the reason may be this is an easy way to hide your sensitive files and keep them private.

Let's make it easy for everyones understanding.

To hide any file on your device open your file manager, create a new folder and name it whatever you feel like naming it.
Now move all the files you want to hide into the folder you just created.
Finally rename that same folder you created and put a dot (.) before the name. E.g .Newfolder
The folder will now be hidden, to display it goto your file manager settings and click view hidden files.
How to show hidden files and folders

All the apps in your device will not be able to access the files in the hidden folder, thus will not be able to display them.

This trick will not work on your phone if the file manager does not support hide/display files. If your phone don't support hide/display files then you will have to use a third party tool to hide files.

In addition, other apps and media viwers might compel the display of hidden files. E.g, hidden images showed up in the form of generic image thumbnails when I tried to attach media in a Messenger.

I will advice you to test this method with a few unused files to see if and how the trick works on your device before proceeding.

Which method do you use in hiding files on phone? If you have a different method, you can also contribute below at the comment box.
