    Hi

    Howto hide an app?

    example: you use a dating app, but have a girlfriend (who has full access to your iphone)

    You can't without jailbreak.

    You can obscure an app though. The iPhone is limited to I think 9 pages of apps, with 16 icons per page. If you download enough apps to fill all of those spots, you can push the app you want to hide off the end of the 9th page so it's not visible. You can still get to the app by typing its name in the Spotlight page.

    You can also delete the app when you're not using it, and re-load it whenever you want from the App Store.

    If you have one, but still need to keep looking, just get rid of the gf and end the problem!

    This (sounds like there are trust issues)

    OR if she is just a g/f why does she need full access to your phone?

    No, your boyfriend doesnt have any apps hidden, it can't be done without jailbreak. Move on...
