  1. Hidden apps are hard to uninstall

    Within the hidden folder you cannot access the context menu available everywhere else. So to uninstall it first needs to be unhidden..

            so please solve the password problem..of hide apps .It is breakable by saying to google assistant to open the app. At that time the password is not effective.. please solve it.

            • hidden app disappears after update

              One of my hidden apps received an update from Google play, and it no longer appears in my hidden apps menu or my regular apps menu. Confirmed the app is still installed via play store. Will likely have to uninstall/reinstall to get it to reappear.

                  Hidden apps with a password are easily accessible if you hit the switch between apps button on your phone.

                                        • If I am on the hidden apps page and I lock my device, after unlocking it open

                                          If I am on the hidden apps page and lock my device, then on unlocking it, it resumes from that hidden apps page itself. It should either resume the doc icon page or home page as they are supposed to be hidden apps. What in the case of accidental unlock infront of anyone whom we dont want to show our hidden apps?
