    Just upgraded to the s7 from the s5 and bitterly disappointed that there is no button to 'Hide Apps'. Can someone recommend a program that lets me do this without taking over my fone? I just wanna hide apps so the kids cant get to them. Cheers ears.

    I use Nova Launcher, which has this option, however, it will "take over your phone", replacing Samsung's skin.

    Another option would be to download an app protector, like Smart App Protector, which allows you to password pattern protect any apps that you desire to keep away from others.

    Yeah you'll probably need to download and use a different Launcher. Pretty much all other Launchers let you do this. Next Launcher is awesome! I've been using it for years. The whole purpose of downloading a different Launcher is to customize the way everything looks, so if you don't like the look of the new Launcher you can customize it to look how ever you want. You could even make it look like stock Samsung TouchWiz.

    I thought I saw in a video somewhere you could hide apps? Maybe I am wrong.
