Your smartphone is now your life. That means that you need to even be more vigilant with the kind of information and transactions you make with your phone. That means which photos, contacts, messages and apps you want exposed to any eavesdropper.

Chameleon OS’s Xhide Apps can help you with your security detail. The app is like a secrete vault where you conceal sensitive apps, photos, videos, recordings that you don’t want just about anyone who gets on your phone to use. For instance, you might want to hide banking apps, private note apps, gallery depending what you deem sensitive data. Xhide is part of a family of default apps such as XClub, XTheme, XWeather, XPower, XManager that ship with Infinix smartphones Chameleon OS. The sister brand Tecno unfortunately doesn’t have a familiar app for their HiOS Mobile operating system. So owners of Tecno phones will have to get the app APK from Infinix smartphones.
