MIUI protects your Xiaomi mobile: hide photos, notes and even documents

Even if you don’t realize it, your Xiami mobile has a large number of functions and possibilities to protect you, among which are the possibility of hiding any document, photo, video, note or whatever you want so that no one else sees it.

Not only will someone not be able to see it if your mobile phone is stolen or lost, but neither will someone who has the pattern of your mobile phone or can easily unlock it.

MIUI protects your Xiaomi mobile

Xiaomi, Redmi and POCO mobile phones add a new security layer to photos, videos, notes and documents so that only you can access them , and I’ll tell you how you can hide what you need from prying eyes and be able to see them as much as you want .

Hide your most private photos

If what you want is to hide your photos on your Xioami mobile, you have it very simple, you just have to follow these steps:

  1. Open your mobile gallery
  2. Select the photos or video you want to hide
  3. Below you will see the option Add to album , confirm it
  4. Click on Private Album
  5. Create a security pattern
  6. You can add your Xiaomi account by clicking add in the next step


The next times you will save a few steps. In any case, remember that to do this you will have to have previously activated the synchronization of the gallery from the settings of your mobile, the steps are these:

  1. go to the gallery
  2. Click on the 3 dots in the upper right
  3. go to settings
  4. Confirm to activate synchronization
  5. Make the adjustments you want if you are interested

To be able to see the private photos on your mobile you will have to slide down in albums. The key is that you will have to put the pattern that you have established (not the one on the mobile) to view them.

Hide your notes so no one can see them

If you want your notes to be private, you can do that too by following a few simple steps. They won’t be able to access them even with your lock pattern if you do it this way, so I’ll tell you how:

  1. Enter Notes
  2. Click on More
  3. Add the text and what you want
  4. Go to the 3 dots on the top right
  5. confirm hide


If you want to do this with an existing note, you just have to open it, click on the 3 points and confirm the hide. In order to see the hidden notes you will have to swipe down and unlock them with the pattern you have created.

Do not let other people see your documents

To hide your documents , photos, videos or any other file you can do it from the file manager. It is very simple:

  1. Open the File Manager
  2. Select the file you want to hide
  3. At the bottom you will see the 3 dots
  4. confirm make private


If it is another type of file other than documents, it is the same path and the process may vary slightly. For example, if you want to remove photos from the file manager, you will have to follow the same steps and then go to add folder and private folder, just like if you do it from the gallery.
