    I really need to know if there is a way to hide certain photos. There are photos I wouldn't want certain people seeing. I think there is a folder called protected media from file manager even I can't access the folder. *confused*

    Yes there is! Transfer the pictures to the "Video" folder. This way, they won't appear in your photo gallery. The only way to see them is to browse all the way to the video folder in the file manager.

    The protected media folder is used by the OS to store stuff like ringtones etc. You don't have access to it as a general user. You need "root" access for that, which we don't have as BlackBerry10 users. You can also zip the pictures into a zip file and store them anywhere. Or use the app that zozo1980 adviced!

    I'm in the same spot and I have folders of pictures that I don't want to appear in my Picture gallery app in the Video folder. People will only see the folders if they go to videos via file manager. They're not even viewable via the Video gallery app. To be completely safe, zip the folder, you won't even see thumbnails when you open the Zip file. =)

    Create a new folder and move "protected" items/photos to it. Create a file called

    .nomedia

    that is DOTnomedia and the file can or should be empty in that folder.

    The ".nomedia" file must be created in Windows and then moved into the private folder on your phone's memory card. The file is a null file; it has no contents, just a name.

    I have to guess you are right. Since I just got a Samsung Tablet and one app that I downloaded has the file in its Folders.

    So, it must be a "universal" method.

    To create it, all I did was right-click on the Windows desktop, select new/file/enter the name and click OK. Make sure the file name is exactly ".nomedia", without the quote marks and with no extra extension of the filename, such as ".txt".
