How do I hide apps on my Samsung Galaxy S5?

You can hide apps so that they are not shown in the apps screen. This will not uninstall the app, but will simply remove it from view.

 

Note that if you have a newer model device, such as a Samsung Galaxy S7 or S8, or the 2017 models for the Galaxy A3 or A5, your device contains a secure folder for hidden apps. You can find out more about the secure folder here.

1 From the home screen, touch Apps
