I dont want my family to know how much I earn or how much I spend. Is there a way to automatically hide or archive messages meeting a certain criteria ? Like an outlook email rule ? I currently use Microsoft SMS Organizer.
Unfortunately, I cannot change the pin or security of my phone, else it will raise suspicions.
So I want a way where my family is still able to check stuff on my phone, but certain sms is automatically hidden/archived

you want to hide you much you are earning …
Just disable credit notification for your bank account.

Debit notification can be kept on and message can be deleted after reading

Your brother and brother’s wife check your phone? What kind of people your live around? Why to hide from parents? Do they ask you not to spend much? If they do then you may be over-spending. So best solution is to delete the message. or install super backup. Backup daily and delete inbox.

Once my brother’s wife asked me for my phone to call (she wanted to peak into my phone and didn’t need to call). I handed her Nokia 1600 with BSNL sim. Although. i had nothing to hide but I wanted to create doubt in her mind. That’s what I am good at. Don’t get invlove with women but play with women’s mind as much as they do. It was 5 year ago since I last met my brother and never initiated talk with her since brother’s marriage. Both never liked me. Always thought my parents love me more so hatred is given here. His wife tried all women tactics but I am well experienced as took gyan from 60+ age people. Then she resorted to what women do. Start badmouthing but got a befitting reply from my relatives who knew how good I am. I don’t hurt people until unless they invite themselves to get hurt.

Many parents do. Controlling other’s and their thoughts is in human genes. They come from generations which was too invloved in other’s life and love to peak in. My parents on other hands trust me because I have won their trust. So even if God arrives to tell something that I hidden, they will tell they already know it. smile Even my grandmother, Daadi becomes a Maa Chandi if someone targets me. haha

Instead of giving reply to what OP asked we are deviating to something else which is not supposed to be discussed in open forum as its a privy to his family.

No privacy breach. No names used. No address. No real names? We are imagining here.

Well that’s right but easiest and best is to either lock the phone or don’t give it to anyone or lock specific apps which he doesn’t want to be viewed by others.
Hiding such things will become a tedious task and messages are not the only things which can reveal what op wants to hide.

Use a different sim for normal calls/whatsapp etc and for sms relating to banks and others. Use two handsets. Lock the handset having bank sim.

Whatever you are suggesting is simply going to create suspicion. I will be asked why do I have two sims? why two phones etc.

All I need is a way to hide certain types of smses.

Simple answer – you have separate sim and two phones to prevent bank frauds. Do not use the other phone for any other purposes.
If your brother/brother’s wife still wants to check the other phone, point black ask in front of all members of your family why they want your bank details. Shift the suspicion to them.

Can’t you just hide sms apps from launcher

This solves the problem to some extent. The problem is when they are using the phone.. sms alerts pop up.

I think for now I’ll just disable all sms alerts as conditionally disabling alerts or hiding is not feasible.

It was my situation 5 yrs ago. These days I don’t know where they are. But your situation is regarding hiding info. and you have every right to have privacy in your own life.

As I said take backup and delete sms. Restore when you need it back. Or buy a new sim with BSNL. Keep it in multimedia phone and register same with bank. Or Open a new bank acc. Tfr funds to it and use it cards. Don’t let anyone know about that acc. Say it is friend’s acc. Opt out of any phisical deliveries of that acc.

Even I am looking for similar app / utility, years back I use to have

Handcent SMS
GO SMS pro

Both have private box, which auto moves messages to private box based on the contacts, but it was complicated to use, to define the contact for each Bank sender ID (HDFC uses multiple Ids). Also these apps are bulky and causes performance lags as time progresses

Not tried again recently, you can try and let us know

also you can try this. Hide messaging app. disable Notifications and sound for that app and enable just Vibration. so that whenever you get a message, mobile will vibrate and only you would know that you got a text. later when no one is around, you can open message app which is hidden and check that text.

Okay so I know of something that can be of help in this situation (for notifications). There is an app called BUZZKILL which helps to control notifications based on rules. You can create your own rules like if notification received from XYZ app that CONTAINS any given text/phrase then DISMISS notification. This app works just fine. Link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=c...

Only caveat is that it costs ₹100. But then all other solutions might be more expensive anyway hence this might be the cheapest solution for you. 100 bucks looks high for an app but not that much if you have some sort of emergency. But if you cannot afford this then there are 2 options:

  1. Wait for this app does come on sale. It happens once in 2-3 months. I bought it for ₹40 in a sale.
  2. Buy google play gift code from amazon at a discount. Sometimes there are offers like ₹50 off on ₹100 googleplay gift code.

Please note that, it’ll only hide sms notification and not the actual sms from the sms app. So if your bhabhi opens SMS Organiser by any chance, she can still see the messages grinning

The best way is use Macrodroid app and program whatever way you want..
Like delete/move to trash any text that contains “HDFC”..

My life is well trained by me to act like CIA/Mossad agents. I think like one. Everything is under doubt for me. So always keep a Nokia feaute phone if someone asks for phone. If life is tough I am toughest.
