I want to hide the installed 3 rd party apps in android. I hided the app icon in app drawer using Nova launcher, but those apps still visible in settings > apps list? Is there any way to hide it from apps list? I am using lollipop 5.0.2 and phone not rooted.
For Samsung devices, root is not required. You can do it using app drawer:
- Click on Apps button on your home screen.
- Click on menu button( left soft key button).
- Tap on hide apps and select the apps you want to hide.
Similarly on the HTC devices.
there's no way to hide an app from apps list in settings unless the phone is rooted.
