We live in a world where people choose text messaging to start a conversation rather than talking face to face. It’s all because of the wide range of text messaging apps available for smartphones. Since everyone now holds an Android smartphone, developers make more and more text messaging apps for Android devices.
Messaging apps like Hike, Viber, Facebook Messenger, Telegram, WhatsApp, etc., are meant to exchange messages, but these apps can’t replace the SMS inbox. Most sensitive information like authentication codes, one-time passwords, etc., lands on our SMS inbox.
We usually don’t care much about our SMS inbox, but our SMS inbox contains sensitive information. There are certain types of information on SMS inbox that we don’t like to share with anyone or have anyone take a peek at. So, for that, we need to use apps that can hide messages on Android.
