One of the defining things about Android smartphones today, is the way the different OEMs introduce some really off-beat and creative features to make their offerings stand out in the rather saturated market. While some brand shave gone with the IR laser remote control feature, there are some who have integrated parallel space into the their OS version. The feature we are going to talk about today, is the Hide apps feature.

As the name suggests, the hide app feature allows you to conceal apps ,and while we have to yet figure out the need for this feature, but we did find it useful when it came to handing our smartphone to friends or even the younger crowd.

We currently use a Redmi device, and this tutorial is being written using the steps that can be followed on a typical Redmi device.
