Private Mode

Private Mode lets you hide specific files within some Samsung apps so that they're no longer in view when you're not in Private Mode. It works in the Gallery, Video, Music, Voice Recorder, My Files and Internet apps.

  1. Swipe down from the Notification bar, then select the Settings icon > Lock screen and security > Private mode > PRIVATE MODE switch > desired security login type, then follow the prompts. Private mode is now enabled.
