Tap "Settings" or the gear icon to access the home screen settings. Then look for an option called "Hidden Applications" or "Hidden Folder". The wording may vary depending on the MIUI ROM version you are using. Tap this option to continue.
Step 3: Create a hidden folder or enable hidden apps
If this is your first time using this feature, you may need to create a hidden folder or enable hidden apps. Follow the onscreen instructions to set up this feature. You may also need to set a password or an unlock pattern to access your hidden apps.
Step 4: Add apps to hidden folder
Once you have enabled hidden apps or created a hidden folder, you can add apps to that folder. You will see a list of all the apps installed on your Xiaomi smartphone. Tap the apps you want to hide to add them to the hidden folder. Selected apps will now be hidden from the home screen and app drawer.
Step 5: Access your hidden apps
To access your hidden apps, open the hidden folder using the method defined during setup (for example, by performing a specific gesture or using a password).
You will see your hidden apps and can use them as usual. To make an app visible again, go to the hidden folder, long press the app, and follow the prompts to remove it from the hidden folder or make it visible on the home screen.
