    Is there an app that allows me to hide files (pdfs, videos, pictures), yet still allowing them to be easily accessed at a moment's notice? I asked at the windows mobile forums but my questions keep getting ignored.

    I'm using Privacy Suite pro on my Blackberry which keeps all files from not showing up anywhere else - which is a feat because I still can't keep the music player from adding my ringtones no matter which folder I put it in - yet all the files are accessible at a moment's notice without having to dig through a whole bunch of hoops to get at them. Is there anything similar for Windows phone? thanks.

    Not to sure about windows phone but if you have a file explorer can't you just put whatever files in a folder and add a ".nomedia" file in the folder hiding the files or even creating a folder with an extention like so ".folder". And then using that file explorer to view the folder and it's content.

    Trust me I have 1000+ pics of pictures stored on my phone and i keep them hidden yet accessible but im on android so not sure if it would help.

    "In case of emergency, use phone." :creep:

    Not to make fun of the post thread, but you didn't have to include porn in the title, "Hide files on windows phone" would been just fine, adding porn is just click bait for trolls. :P

    If you are using android, i'm not sure if it works the same. But there is android apps that hides stuff or apps that locks or prevents access.

    I suppose if you wanna hide stuff, then just somehow put it in a zip file and add a password. Usually is easy and basic but it works. If is a windows phone, it should least be able to do windows things. :)

    Best thing to do is for android. Is hide it in folders within folders and label the video as like "Puppys Jumping", and folders as "Section 5.2"

    As for iphone, best to use VLC app, and then drag and drop videos into the vlc app.

    Then place the VLC app with 2 other apps in a folder, and place that folder in your last page on your iphone display (to the far right).

    A name that folder as "random apps" or "junk apps"


    These methods are not full-proof, but will work on like 99% people. W

    ont work on me, but honestly out of a network of 20,000 people i Know, I am the only one that thinks this way, or knows these methods,
    and if I found porn on your phone, I wouldn't care.

    Everybody watches porno :)

    I ended up ordering the DTEK 50. Continuum is nice, but not there yet and not worth $1600 when I can get by with what I have and just getting a phone when it is on sale for $300

    Masturbation is something you should savour. Anticipation is half of the thrill.

    The trolls here now know you are addict to the PORN and lonely thanks to your title. Tsk tsk. Find a lover of whoever you are and they are better than a PORN.

    I just figured I'd cut to the chase, as i highly doubt it's that rare.

    That being said, i have switched to Android. I haven't found anything as self-contained as the Blackberry app so i haven't loaded my pictures, just videos and pdfs.

    You can hide porn files in Android from displaying in Gallery and other apps
    Make a "ff" then create a ".nomedia" file. Bam, problem fixed.
    Don't ask how i found it.
