On LG K30 & K40 you can hide apps, photos, videos, and files from kids, prying eyes, or anyone else.
In this post, we are going to learn how to unhide and get back those hidden apps. This can be done quite easily. Just follow the below tutorial with video and screenshots –
If someone has hidden apps on your K30 / K40 and you wish to unhide it, follow the below procedure –
Long-Press an empty space on your K40 home screen.
Now, tap “Home Screen Settings”.
Go through the app list and uncheck the hidden apps.
You can see AcDisplay, Amazon Assistant, Audio Recorder, and Calculator are the hidden apps.
Untick these and tap “DONE” to make them visible.
Now zero apps are hidden.
If you’re using the “Home with an app drawer” you’ll also find the “Hide Apps” option on the “all apps” page.
Tap the app drawer to view all apps.
Hit the “3 dots” icon situated at the top-right corner.
Now, select the “Hide apps” option in the dropdown list.
Tick the apps you wish to hide and click “DONE”.
It says “4 apps hidden”.
This way we can hide or unhide and app on K40, but what about Photos, Videos & Other Files? LG K40 / K30 doesn’t have a built-in feature to perform this action. We’ve to rely on a 3rd party app to do the same.
I’ve made a video on this as well –
