I have stored some important files in my android phone in rar format. I've hidden these files in .nomedea folder. I've also enabled password for these files via win rar. The problem is for opening these files I need a rar explorer app. But my friend always delete this app. I tried hiding the app with other apps like applocker but the problem is when my friend uses shareit he can see all the apps. I don't want the rar app to get discovered because knowing the presence of suspicious apps can let my friend know about the importatn hidden files and he'll fist off delete all the suspicious apps. I tried to put the winrar apk file in .nomedea folder, thinking I'd install it every time I need it and uninstall it, but it shows up in file explorer's APK folder.
Another problem is that when we switch on the hidden files mode of the file explorer and simply search
. all the hidden files are shown. And the worst happens if we search
.dil or other extensions, the most important files show up easily on the top.
So the question is,
How do I hide the WinRar apk file in my android phone such that no one else can in any way find it.
P.S: I can't root the phone yet because it will invalidate the guarantee period.
