    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? In general, there's no way to retrieve Private Mode or hidden file passwords. For every phone that I've looked into that has a Private Mode, you have to factory reset the phone to reset the Private Mode password (which, of course, means that you lose those hidden files). Sorry!

    I have a Stylo 4+ running Android 8.1.0. Thats the answer ive found running through various threads around the web too, so that may just be the solution. Is there a good way to back everything up so that i can do a reset and then just reapply my apps, songs, photos, etc. to the way i had them?

    Unfortunately, there aren't any good comprehensive backup/restore apps or programs. You might be able to use LG Backup or LG Bridge to backup certain settings and data: https://www.lg.com/us/support/produc...4708841-others. Other options include uploading files to the cloud (like Google Drive, Google Photos, or Google Play Music).
