In this day and age teenagers are more tech savvy than most adults.
They chat on their smartphones with their peers, download all the popular apps and are greatly familiar with their device settings.
Hiding Apps The most popular way to hide apps or any other content on your phone is by using an app that does that.
Both Apple Store and Google Play have a lot of hiding apps for download and the majority of them are free.
One such app is Keep Safe (Android or i Phone, free).
It allows you to upload pictures and videos into the app from the phone gallery and keeps them secured under a password.
An interesting aspect of this app is that it has a built in feature called Safe Send.
You can send a picture that will be visible for 20 seconds before self-destructing.
The application developers claim that Keep Safe Safe Send is like Snapchat but works with everyone, even if they don’t have the app.
The recipient receives a link via text message that takes them to the picture that the Keep Safe user sent.
Vault (Android or i Phone, free), is also a popular hiding app that allows users to hide photos, videos, text messages, contacts and apps.
