[Feature Review] Hidden Apps: hide app icon shortcuts on homescreen

Mi Fans!
We, at MIUI, put your privacy and security at the top-most in order to give you the best possible user experience.

We are presenting Hidden Apps feature, which will enable you to add the app icons to the hidden folder, and hence that app icons including that folder, will not be visible on any home screen, giving you the privacy that you deserve, followed by a very handy secured shortcut to enter to hidden apps folder.

How to hide app icons on home screen
  • Go to Security app - app lock - settings
  • Turn on Hidden Apps - Add the apps to hide
  • Done

How to enter to hidden app icons
  • Go to any home screen
  • Spread two fingers to enter to hidden app folder

Do note,
If you install another third-party launcher, hidden apps will be visible in that case.
