Re: private mode
I use it everyday for ummm.....special tihngs. No seriously, My wife is in South Korea for a year and we like to send some pictures back and forth that i would rather people not see so i put them in albums and mark the albums as private.
It works great, no need for an app to hide private files. I also have movies that are private. And it was pretty easy to transfer the stuff that i wanted on my phone using the app on my mac when i got the phone two weeks ago, it allowed me to copy everything right into private and make albums, and then i am adding new stuff to it all the time. Whenever i want to add to it or just browse, i turn on private mode, it requires my password or a finger scan, wait about 10 sec and everything populates in my gallery. I have made the private mode button on my settings in my notification bar for quick access. That is absolutly one of the best features of the S5 in my eyes.

Here's how I've gotten it to work. Turn private mode on, open up "my files" and you'll now see a folder called "private" at the bottom. Still using "my files," go to wherever folder or file you want to keep secret and simply move it to the "private" folder. When you're done, turn off private mode and the folder and its contents will be hidden again until you turn private mode back on.
Re: private mode
I put a photo and a document in private mode and it worked. Yea!!.
So I guess trying to put a note from a downloaded app doesn’t work.
how can I get the items to show when I have mode on, on the notification bar. It only shows option to turn off an below that box that says hide personal content.
