Hiding apps on your android is very easy. There are basically two methods to hide apps on your android powered device:
Method 1: Install Go launcher EX (No Root)
It is perhaps the only method for hiding apps from the app drawer especially when you don’t have any root access on your android. All that you need is to replace the stock home screen launcher with Go launcher Ex and the job is done. After installing Go launcher, make it your default home screen launcher by pressing the home button.
Then go to app drawer and press the option button, you will find an option to Hide apps. Simply check all those apps that you want to hide from the app drawer. That’s it ;)
But unfortunately, there’s a drawback in using this method – your hidden apps will be visible as soon as you decide to switch back to your stock launcher! But again, this is the only method of hiding apps for non-rooted users. There’s no other way, you have to stick to the go launcher app if you don’t want those specific apps to be seen.
Method 2: Install Link2SD (Requires Root)
If you have root enabled on your android, then the good news is - you can easily hide apps more securely with Link2SD. In-fact, this method is far more solid as compared to the previously mentioned method for non-rooted users. You can hide apps with Link2SD by freezing them.
Generally, those apps are frozen which notoriously keep running in the background and keep draining your RAM (which is important for multi-tasking). Thus freezing has a dual benefit – It boosts your RAM & hide apps as well ;)
Whenever you want to unhide those apps, launch Link2SD again and select “frozen” by tapping on the filter like icon. All frozen apps will be shown to you, long press on the desired apps and select unfreeze. That’s it. Your apps will be visible in the app drawer again ;)
