The act of peeping and the defending of privacy has not been stopped from the phones’ coming out, and this kind of trend is never believed to stop. The data files on our phones, like the messages and the contacts are very personal, which need our careful protection. We surely don’t want others to know the messages, which will lose our privacy and put us unsafe. Thus, in this article, I will introduce six tools to hide the SMS text messages on smartphone for you, helping you to hide your messages so that no one can see your messages freely.
Tool 1. Block SMS And Call – Hide Many Data on your Smartphone
The Block SMS And Call is the first application that I would like to recommend. It supports Android phones. It is easy to use and can hide the data files more than the messages. It can also hide the call logs, incoming calls, missed calls, and the contacts. And it offers six different modes for your choice.
1. The “Phone on the other hand” mode can help you block the incoming calls on the blacklist. That means when your phone is in another hand, but not in your hand, you can put the numbers into the blacklist that you don’t want to get through during that time.
2. You can make a list of the contacts, so that all the calls and messages from those numbers will be stored on a secretive special place, but show up in the status bar with the fake names. Only you can understand and get access to them.
