Most people have a few pictures in their Photos library which they would rather keep private. If you let someone browse through your photos, you don’t necessarily want them to be able to see everything in your Library. So today, I’ll show you how to move those photos out of you main library and into a hidden photos album. It’s easy and free, and while there are dedicated apps available specifically for this purpose, this technique should be enough for most people.
While browsing through your photos, if you see a photo you’d like to hide, click on it to select it and then click on the share button on the bottom left side of the screen. So, four steps:
- Open your Photos app.
- Select the photo or video that you want to hide.
- Tap > Hide.
- Confirm that you want to hide the photo or video.
The nice thing is that once you’ve picked one photo, it will also be very easy for you to choose adjoining pictures that you’d also like to hide.
And that’s it, those photos will now reside in an album called “hidden album” which you can find in the album section of your Photos app.
If you need to Unhide a picture in the Hidden Album, you basically do the same thing in reverse. Select an image in the hidden album, and click on the Share icon and then choose Unhide.
As you can see, it’s really easy to do once you know the steps. Have fun hiding photos !
