    How do I hide games or apps from the app drawer in Samsung Android Jellybean device?

    All apps and games installed on my Samsung android will be displayed in my app drawer by default. It seems to be annoying if someone else borrows my phone. I don’t want others to see all the stuff on my phone. How can I possibly hide this stuff?

    Re: How do I hide games or apps from the app drawer in Samsung Android Jellybean device?

    You can easily hide games and apps which you don’t want other to see by the following steps. Firstly, open up the app drawer of your Samsung phone. Then tap on the menu button to open up the drawer’s menu. And then menu will be listed down and choose ‘Hide Applications’ from there. The app drawer will be changed into select mode and a box will be appeared on top of each icon. Tap on this icon to choose the app. The apps you choose will have check mark on the respective box. When you selected all the apps or games you want to hide just tap on ‘Done’ button which is on top-right of the screen.
