In this day and age teenagers are more tech savvy than most adults. They chat on their smartphones with their peers, download all the popular apps and are greatly familiar with their device settings. Another recent thing that a lot of teens do on their smartphones is hide pictures, messages and apps.
How to manage specific permission for your apps on an Android phone
Find out how teens are doing this and discover what you should be looking for on teens' phones. The most popular way to hide apps or any other content on your phone is by using an app that does that. Both Apple Store and Google Play have a lot of hiding apps for download and the majority of them are free.
One such app is KeepSafe Android or iPhone, free. It allows you to upload pictures and videos into the app from the phone gallery and keeps them secured under a password.
An interesting aspect of this app is that it has a built in feature called Safe Send. You can send a picture that will be visible for 20 seconds before self-destructing.
The recipient receives a link via text message that takes them to the picture that the KeepSafe user sent. Vault Android or iPhone, free , is also a popular hiding app that allows users to hide photos, videos, text messages, contacts and apps.

Just like KeepSafe, it is only accessible via password. The application is free, however if you upgrade you can have additional features such as creating a decoy Vault account. When a parent or adult insists on seeing the content of an app, teens can show them a fake app through Vault. Another category of hiding apps that parents should be aware of are disguise apps.

However, with later Android OS updates, Google has implemented a way to manage the permissions on per app basis giving complete control to users. One can now simply disallow a permission and keep using the app. There are two ways to manage your notification either you can view all the permission and check the list of apps using them or you can view a particular app and see the list of granted permissions.
