simply add a “.” to the front of the folder’s name and everything in the folder will be hidden.
this also works with files if you're trying to only hide a file. :)



when you place a dot in front of the folders name all you’re doing is renaming the folder or file in such a way that Android ignores it. This will prevent photos from showing up in galleries, audio files from showing up in players, and documents from showing up in editing apps.

After you hide your file you may not see it because it's hidden. if this happens don't worry there's a simple fix!, simply enable the "show hidden files" option in your file manager and you will see the file once again.
