Hide Master is one of a hell smart app. Its my personal favourite. It is the first privacy protection app that hides your apps in different modes. Guest Mode and Home Mode.
In Guest Mode all your private pictures, messages, videos, etc and all other apps are hidden so that your partner can not find your secrets. Also there is Home Mode where all the apps you hide in Guest Mode will unlock in the private screen of Hide Master in the leftmost main screen. Both the modes opens with separate password or gestures.
