Set Samsung Galaxy Into Private Mode

Private mode allows you to hide selected files on your phone from others. This is especially handy if you ever allow other people to use or handle your device. If you have certain files on your phone that you prefer to remain hidden, simply turn private mode on and select the files you wish to hide. Once you select files to hide, turn private mode off, and those files will remain hidden. Only individuals who know the unlock code can turn private mode back on. More on hiding content with private mode


If you forget your pin, password, pattern or your fingerprint isn't recognized, you'll have to perform a factory reset to use private mode again.
