    Hi All,

    Is it currently possible to hide or "private" media on the blackberry passport? I put private in quotations because I was wondering if I could require a password to be entered before my media comes up, or if it's possible to hide the media altogether. A google search told me it was possible on previous versions of Blackberry OS, but I have yet to find out how on the passport. I'm currently running 10.3.0.908 if that helps.

    Thanks in advance!

    There are a few apps in the bb app world that can put password on folders/ hide folders but not exactly what you are looking for. I haven't used/ tried any of those apps.

    BTW, contents of zipped folders also don't show up in the media.

    Privacy suite pro works really nice but one warning.. after a device wipe/reset none of my files came back after backup. There's also a hide feature in native photo app so you may want to check that out as well.

    It's possible to hide photos with OS10.3.1 (I have PassportSQW100-1/10.3.1.1151), but I don't believe videos can be hidden (yet).

    Create ".nomedia" file on your PC (dot nomedia without extension). When this file is put in the folder with media files (audio, video, pictures), those files are no longer appear in apps (players, viewers). Handy for preventing custom ringtones from appearing in media player.

    Note, that .nomedia will not be accessible in BB10 File manager, so you won't be able to delete/copy it. Though, Ghost Commander (android app) can see it.
