Google Drive is a great place to store your important files. It allows you to share them with others, but it also keeps track of who has access and when they were last viewed. If you’re looking for a more private way to store your files, there are several steps you can take to hide them from view.
Note: This article was written using the newest version of Google Drive available at the time of publication. We’ll update it as new versions become available.
If you’re looking for a way to hide folders on mobile devices, such as an Android or iOS phone or tablet, there are two methods that work well. The first method uses the “Do Not Disturb” option in the app settings menu and the second uses a PIN code to lock the app so no one else can see it when they open it on their device.
1) Open the Google Drive app on your mobile device and tap “Settings” at the bottom-right corner of your screen. Then, select “Turn On Do Not Disturb.” This will prevent anyone from seeing any notifications while using Google Drive on their mobile device until they turn off this feature manually.
