UE4Game folder on External Storage - Android
Hello UE Team, I wanted to know whether it's possible to prevent a ue4 android game to create a folder (UE4Game and its content) automatically in External storage? I want to have it on internal data folder (like android/data/com../UE4Game/) so the user can't see the save games easily (e.g)

Any files placed in GExternalFilePath will be cleaned up when the APK is uninstalled. You can make this change in AndroidJNI.cpp to ue4_GameActivity_nativeSetGlobalActivity after GExternalFilePath = FString(nativeExternalFilesPathString):
This will use the external file path for shipping builds. You don't want to do this for launch-on since it expects to find the pushed files in the normal location.
I am planning to provide this as a checkbox option in 4.15; the feature set for 4.14 is already locked down.

There are serious problems. If user doesn't have external sdcard, UE4Game folder is created in Internal storeage and It will not be removed when uninstall. And another problem is that All game resource images are shown in gallery app.
I hope these Problems will be fixed in 4.15
