Trick #1: Hide Your Files In A Folder
In case you don’t know, Android does not recognize files if they are stored in a folder named “.nomedia” (without quotes). So all you have to do to hide your files is put all your stuff in a folder and then create a new folder in that existing folder and name it“.nomedia” (again, without quotes). Now apps like gallery, video players, or any other photo or video viewing apps will not be able to read those files stored with a .nomedia folder. With this you can Hide Images & Video in Any Android Phone

Trick #2: Creating A Separate Folder
In the first technique, we created a hidden folder in an already existing folder but in this technique, we will create a new and separate hidden folder specifically for the purpose of hiding files.
As mentioned in the first technique, Android, by default, does not recognize folders that begin with a dot (.). So instead of creating a hidden folder in an existing folder we will create a new hidden folder altogether. To do so, open your preferred file explorer and go to the storage section (internal/external) where you want to create this folder. Once there, create a new folder and name it anything, just make sure to add a dot (.) in the beginning. You have successfully created a hidden folder. Now store anything you want in it.
The benefit of this technique is that the hidden folder cannot be seen even in the file manager. To access this folder just enable “show hidden folders” option in your file explorer’s settings.
