So if you must know, the xhide, or infinix xhide rather, is a very handy tool that comes pre-installed with all infinix smart phones running on any version of XOS Chameleon or Hummingbird, phones like the Hot 4, Hot 5, Zero 4, Zero 5, Note 3 and 4, and all the Infinix Hot S series should have this nifty feature already pre-installed in them.

And what it does is simple, it is more like a secured vault folder, where you can easily move all your files (apps, videos, mp3(s), photos, contacts, messages) which you don't want them to be seen by the public.

After that, you can as well hide it completely from your phone's app drawer, so nobody will even have a clue that it is there. And secondly, to open the app itself, it has its own special kind of way which is not very popular with the other ways of inputting a code to open a locked app.

No, in this case, you will have to input the code in your device's phone dialer app. and the codes look like this.

So just go ahead, move every app and files which you don't want people to see when they get a chance at your phone, into Xhide, enable the "Hidden Mode" feature which will take away the Xhide icon from your phone's app drawer, lock it with your desired code combination, and that way, you are completely operating in incognito mode. Cool right.. 😎

  1. I got an infinix hot s3 recently, which uses the hummingbird Xos. However the xhide app isn't pre install and attempt to install it failed. Any idea on what to do.

    1. Well in that case you will have to wait till it is added through a software update.. Because XOS Hummingbird is still a kind new, so there are many features which are still absent in it. But not withstanding you can still download an alternative to it from Play Store. you can download Vault Hide

  2. I've got the same issues updated my phone and couldn't still found xhide, I really need this application now please

    1. Hello Bro you can go to Google Play Store and download the "Phone Master" app. It does pretty much everything you'd do with the Infinix XOS Launcher as it comes bundled with Xhide, App Locker, System Manager and many more.. enjoy.

  3. Does infinix note 5 use xHide

    1. No bro, the Infinix Note 5 is an androidOne smart phone so it doesn't come with all those apps preinstalled in it.. But if you want something like that, you can downnload an app from Google Play Store, the name is Phone Master, and it has stuffs like Xhide and App Freezer already bundled with it.

    2. how can we find xhide in phone master in infinix note 5?

    3. Hello Bro/Sis...I am sorry to tell you, but the Phone Master app currently doesn't support the Xhide feature.

  4. Please I can't find my xhide after I hid it on my phone, how do I get it back?

    1. Hello Life of Solomon, sorry for your loss.. but there's a way you can get around it..go to your phone's dialer app and dial this code "####".. it will bring out your Xhide and prompt you to change the password if you would want to... or you follow this link and follow all instructions written on it..

      Please write back to us to let us know if we were able to solve your problem..Cheers.

  7. How do I make the xhide app hide app and also make the xhide app disappear from my app menu on my infinix hot 6x

    1. Hello Unknown, to hide apps using the Xhide app, when you open the Xhide app itself, from the list of icons presented to you, you will see one written Video on it, another one says Music, another one says Photos and the last one says "Apps"..

      Select the one that says apps, and you will be presented with a list of all the third party apps that is currently installed in your phone..

      Select the ones you want to hide and press okay. that should do the trick..

      And to make the Xhide app to disappear itself, you've got to activate the Hidden Option from inside the app..

      Go to settings inside the app, locate "Hide Xhide".. you will be asked to set a unique pass code which can only be access through your phone's app dialer.. Just follow the prompts shown to you one step after the other.. and in less than a minute, you should have your xhide app completely hidden from intruders. Cheers..

      Please let us know if we were able to solve your problem and Subscribe to our free newsletter too if you haven't done so.. thanks.
