    Is there a way to check and see if someone has hidden apps and pictures on their phone?

    Screenshot_2019-12-20-16-04-30.png Depends on what type of app, If there user apps then you may want to start with the links below.

    If its a hidden malware type of app

    Hidden pictures or videos can be harder to find. It depends on the skill of the person who hides them. If encrypted and renamed folder/file then not so easily found. Even if you find it you nay not know its a pic or video. A good android file explore will ask "open as" .

    well going behind someone's back by looking into their phone is a invasion of one's privacy. what exactly are you trying to find?

    Is that 'someone' your minor child?

    Let me spell out the extremely short version:

    Q: "Is there a way to check and see if someone has hidden apps and pictures on their phone?"

    A: Yes. Numerous ways.

    But if the device isn't your minor child's, you're going to need its owner's permission, and cooperation, to proceed.

    Please advise.
