How to hide an app on your iPhone’s home screen?

Apple makes it easy to manage the apps on your iPhone. You can reorganize your apps onto different pages and folders, and delete the ones you never use. Unfortunately, one of the things that Apple does not allow you to do is to hide an app, or otherwise make it private, so only you can find it. If you have apps that you want to keep others from seeing, you can take some steps below to hide them.

Hide apps in folders on your home screen

The best way to hide apps in a folder is to fill the first pages of the folder with apps that you’re not trying to hide.

  • Choose a folder that already exists on your iPhone (preferably a boring one, like Utilities) or create a new app folder. This isn’t quite the same thing as hiding apps outright, of course, but it does remove apps from immediate view.
  • Press and hold the app icon you want to hide until all your app icons wiggle.
  • Hold and drag the app you’re hiding into the folder where you’re hiding it.











  • And you can further hide apps by moving them beyond the first page of a folder. So an effective strategy for hiding an app is add up to nine apps so that the first page of your folder contains only apps that you’re fine with people seeing.  After that, storing apps you want to keep out of sight on page two, three, or more.
  • To move an app between pages in a folder, drag an app to the right so that a new page within the folder will be created. (Apps on the first page of a folder are visible from the iPhone’s Home screen.)
  • Fill this second page with apps and hide just one or two apps among them so it’s not obvious.
  • If you really want to bury those apps deep, you can create up to 12 pages in a folder as long as each page has at least one app. That means you could have a folder with 11 pages of apps you only sometimes use, and hide your app or apps on the 12th page.

This method obviously doesn’t completely hide apps on your iPhone, but it sure makes it hard to accidentally come across them.​
