Experts have pointed out that Realme smartphones, including the Narzo series and the Realme GT, are fierce competitors. Realme devices are becoming increasingly popular due to their incorporation of some of the essential features requested by users, such as App Lock and Hidden Apps. The most common feature of Android handsets is their ability to run apps.

Those who own Realme smartphones may want to restrict access to some of their apps by hiding them from their apps tray: Here’s how you can Hide and Lock Applications on Realme smartphones with either Realme UI 1.0 or Realme UI 2.0. Moreover, Privacy has been a big concern in recent times and they are more concerned about it than before.
