I have Lumia 520 and I am using NQ Mobile Vault to hide photos. I didn't find any app that can lock/hide videos. NQ Mobile Vault is a free app using it you can hide photos in vault. Anytime you want to see that photo you need to enter the secret password you set up.

I downloaded this app in this month. This app claims it can hide video but it is not. I spent almost 5 days in Windows Phone store but no luck finding a free app to hide videos.

I am using separate app for locking apps. The name of the app is 'App locker'. There is free as well as paid version. Free version is doing great job by protecting my apps. I use this app to lock WhatsApp.

You can hide videos, images, notes and contacts in your Windows Phone if it runs on Windows Phone 8.1 version. Secret folder, Protect your files are some of the free apps which are available in the store and you can download it without paying a single penny. Another method to hide videos is by changing the video format. It is more easier than the first one. You can perform this method with the help of a file manager which allows to edit names of the folders. In this method just choose the video files you want to hide, click on the change name and remove the video format (for example if the file name is example.mp4 change it to example), then click save.
