Hide Whatsapp images, videos, audios files from gallery. By default Whatsapp images, videos, audios are shown in the gallery so that Whatsapp user can see them along with other gallery images and videos and do not need to go other place to see it. But applicability of this Whatsapp feature varies from person to person depending upon who is using the device along with the device owner.
However,in some cases, where device is used by children and teens of the family, their parents may not want children to see the stuff sent by some of their immature friends. So this type of situation demands a feature that can hide Whatsapp stuff from gallery. But Unfortunately, neither Whatsapp nor Devices’ File Manager provide any in-built feature to hide Whatsapp images and videos. So we have to search for some external solution and here comes ES File Exporter File Manager. Of Course, there are many alternatives but here I will be taking about ES File Exporter File Manager only. ES File Exporter File has been empowered with many features like:
- Remote File Manager
- Application Manager
- Text Viewer and editors
- Built-in RAR and ZIP Support
- Root Explorer
- Access to home PC via Wi-Fi
- File Manager
- Task Killing
In this particular post we are more concerned about its File managing feature that we are going to use for hiding Whatsapp stuff (images, videos, audios etc).
Now let us discuss Steps to be followed to hide Whatsapp images.
Hide Whatsapp images, videos, audios files from gallery.
Step 1: Launch ES File Exporter File Manager and tap Whatsapp folder.
Step 2: Then tap media folder.
Step 3: Now tap Whatsapp images (Similarly you can go for Whatsapp videos and audios).
Step 4: Tab on + icon shown in the bottom left of file manager and you will see a screen as shown below.
Step 5: Create a new file and name it as “.nomedia”.
You are done. Now open your gallery and you will see all Whatsapp images have been vanished.
