    My wife and I send each other "private" SMS messages and I have a son that likes to play with my phone.


    Is there an app to hide incoming SMS messages similar to "hide it pro" or "Super Private Conversation" on android?


    I don't mind a paid app, I just need something reliable that works.

    Thanks in advance

    How about using Kids Corner when you let your son use your phone? http://www.windowsphone.com/en-US/ho...up-kids-corner

    That's fine, but i do want something to hide sms.

    Sometimes I let my coworker use my phone and I wouldn't want him to see either

    AFAIK there's no way you can do this with WP8 at the moment.

    The simple solution might be to just buy another cheap phone/PAYG sim card, enable a sim-lock (or whatever) and just use it for that one purpose.

    Why not?

    I have a very healthy marriage.

    My wife has my passcodes to everything (even Facebook and hide it pro) so yes, it's totally my wife.

    I got a great woman and not trying to mess it up

    Thumbs up to you for that. I would've agreed with the previous poster on thinking it's someone else other than the wife but as you say, you have a healthy marriage, kudos to you. Great example. Oh and sorry can't help on the concern regarding hiding the app

    In answer to your query, I don't think so.

    In terms of racy text messages, this is a normal thing these days. I guess you just have to trust your son and especially your co-worker that they won't snoop on private messages?

    This is one area windows apps lag behind android. People do want to keep secrets and secret messages for whatever reasons and I use an app like this in Android and would have shifted from Android to Windows because I think windows phone just syncs much better with my pc. I think this should be simple, I hide a lot of things on my pc free from the prying eyes of my kids and my wife. why can't I do this on my phone?
