Nice Share Achin I will try these apps especially Shady Contact App and Hide SMS app first then I will try the other apps. BTW the look of the blog is superb which template are you using Achin? Is it Genesis framework?
Do any of these apps prevent Google from having access to incoming and outgoing call logs?
Thank you for any help you can give. Your blog is the most useful I have encountered.
Hey this looks to be good
Try this its the best Secret call and SMS app
Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Extremely useful information specially the last section 🙂 I deal with such information much. I was seeking this certain info for a long time. Thanks and good luck.
can the shaddy contact app still be visible when viewing you phone usage from your carrier?
I have tried 2-3 apps out of which Last One “Hide SMS Text Contact Calls” is perfect for me. It does lots of things in one app only. I would recommend this as it is simple to use and very effective and unique features like:
1. Phone In Other Hand : In this mode you can handover your phone to anybody as all private list contacts will be hidden and you can see those while you got the phone.
2. For each contact you can add hint text …that will help you to identify the private caller.
In my opinion, int the list should be added also Safe Sms! This is the link:
The application allows you to hide incoming and outgoing sms. Just choose the contacts you want to “protect” and the application does the rest.
You can also send text messages directly from the application and they will be invisible outside of the application.
I use it and I find it 100% secure.
Nice apps suggested, I am newbie in blogging and recently posted an article about “Vault” app which does the same and I feel it should be added in your list above. 🙂
by the way your website design very good…simple and nice!
Good post in this sit ! i like to get some ideas about Android Apps from this post. Thanks for this article !
I think the best App for hiding SMS and its history logs is Go SMS Pro. It could be selected as your messenger and works perfect.
if you put these apps on your phone will anything show up on your bill like the number and time/date?
What about compatibility. I used Hide My Text the app is not compatible with Google Hangouts and/or Twitter.
Also the apps mentioned here are not compatible with Kitkat. Would be interested to know if there are similar apps compatible to Kitkat.
Take a look at “SMS Hider” – https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tech9pedia.dontbother
SMS Hider is an audio manger disguised, password protected app that not only prevents the messages from entering the phone from the contacts selected by the user but also stores them in the app privately(even no notification)
Plz give it a look and share ur valuable experience.
Thank u 🙂
