    I saw Audio manager recommended (really for private storage).
    any suggestions for keeping a few files hidden away somewhere on my tablet, using an app or maybe a suggestion
    on doing it with a file manager? I might want to hide a picture or a text file.

    photolocker works well, you can pin protect pictures, files whatever. I have also heard of some app that looks like a calculator (in your app drawer) but in reality is a secret stash. I hope this helps.

    It's really up to the OP what he or she keeps on their phone, there could be very valid reasons for wanting to do this.

    Thanks a lot guys, will look into photolocker and evernote.
    with regard to "You shouldn't keep those kind of secrets...."
    I dont want whoever steals my phone to see whatever notes I have or family pictures. But I think you were joking.
    ps there are about 5 versions of apps called photo locker :)

    Photolocker is the best app to maintain secret files.

    that is why it is so important to use the emoticons to clarify what we mean....
    our facial expressions can't be seen, our hands can't be seen....

    so much of our "language" is in our emotions when talking to people.

    Thanks shalemail but after reading the comments below the app, I am a bit put off, people are complaining they lost photos after updating etc.

    I've had it for over a year with nary a problem. Of course trust your gut and if it don't look good then don't use it. I will say I back up everything on my phone to my PC weekly, and anything uber important I back up right away. So if something was to happen it wouldn't effect me anyway.
