Xhide – What It Is, What It Does, And How To Set It Up In 2mins, On Any Infinix Smartphone.


What is Xhide?

If you must know, Xhide is a secured vault folder found on Infinix smartphones running on Infinix’s own proprietary XOS Chameleon UI or higher.

Just as the name is pronounced “Xhide”, this tool is used to hide stuff on your phone that you want to keep away from the public. Stuff such as apps, pictures, videos, music files, and even contacts and messages.

What makes Xhide unique from all other similar third-party apps out there is the fact that Xhide has its own unique way of unlocking it.

It works by dialing an already preset code in your phone’s app drawer in order to have access to the files that are hidden in there, and this method is not common among other similar third-party apps out there.


But, this feature is only made available on Infinix phones, running older versions of android like Android 7.0 Nougat and 8 Oreo.

The code looks like this.

In addition to having its own special way of accessing the Xhide vault, the Xhide app icon can also, be completely hidden from your phone’s app drawer and home screen, so no one will even have an idea that it is there in the first place.

Sounds cool right?

So, today, let’s see how we can setup and start making use of the Xhide vault on our various compatible Infinix smartphones.

Remember, your phone must be running Infinix XOS 2.1 Chameleon UI (based on Android 7.0 Nougat), or higher.

And with that out of the way, let’s get started. #enjoy.

How to activate Xhide on Infinix phones.

Step One

First thing first, if you’re using an older Infinix phone, probably the ones running the Android 7.0 Nougat version, kindly go to Google Play Store and download the “Phone Master” app.


Or, you can save yourself the stress of going to the play store, and simply tap on the download link below.

For those using newer Infinix smartphone models running newer versions of android, your phone should probably come with the phone master app already pre-installed in it.

But just in case you still couldn’t find it on yours, you can also follow the link given above to download it from the Google Play Store.

Step Two

When you’re done downloading and have probably installed the app too, open it up, and you should have an interface that looks this way.

Phone Master app’s home screen.

From here, go to the tab that says “Toolbox“, and scroll all the way to the bottom of your phone’s screen, there, you should see the “Xhide” option.

Infinix Xhide – Step Three

If you’re opening it for the first time, you’ll be asked to first set a unique code which will be used in opening it whenever you try to access the vault.

But if that wasn’t your first time of opening it, you’ll be asked to input your already preset code.

When you’re done, you should have an interface that looks like this.

Step Four

Like I mentioned earlier, if you using an old model Infinix smartphone, specifically the ones running on Android 7.0 Nougat with XOS 2.1 Chameleon UI, you can activate “Hidden mode” for Xhide.


What this does is, removes the Xhide icon from your phone’s app drawer and home screen, and the only way that you’ll have access to it is by dialing that same unique code that you created, in your phone’s app drawer.

To activate “Hidden mode”, simply tap on the “Settings” option, and enable the toggle that says “Hidden mode”, and that’s it.

  6. 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..
