iPhones now have so many new features that it’s hard to keep track of them all… or even realise they exist. We are aware of the situation. On the other hand, certain characteristics might be quite beneficial.
All of this brings us to the “Hide Photo” option on the iPhone. You should make use of it for more than just having it. We can think of a number of reasons why you would wish to conceal photographs (some apparent, some less so), and we’ll show you how to do it a little later.

But first, why are photographs should be hidden?
To begin, let’s look at the most obvious reason: nudity. Yours? Isn’t it someone else’s? There isn’t anything wrong with it. We take a lot of them! Yet do you really feel comfortable knowing that a misplaced iPhone may allow a total stranger access to your sensitive photos?
I probably lose my iPhone twice a day, despite the fact that I seldom leave the house. If you lose your phone, you’ll want to make it as hard as necessary for people to discover your photographs. Interferences with a person’s privacy can cause a variety of problems, including:
- Economic loss
- Physical fights or injuries
- Feelings of powerlessness
- Government services are being disrupted.
- Damage to one’s reputation
- shame or embarrassment
- Emotional torture
- Theft or fraud of one’s identity
Probably you don’t mind if your phone is lost or if others see your photos. Maybe you’re more worried about unintentionally scrolling by a snapshot of your butthole while showing your mates some fantastic images you just took! It occurs After all, it happens. You won’t have to worry about it if you activate the “Hide Photos” function.
Nudity isn’t the only thing you can wish to hide. (If you don’t want to accept them, that’s great too!) But think about the alternative options. You may have snapped a picture of something you want to present to someone else for the holidays, birthdays, or any other special gift-giving event. And if you’re with that person, you don’t want them to discover their present on your phone when it was intended to be a surprise! When it comes to keeping a surprise present as an *actual* surprise, hiding images is a very excellent approach.
Perhaps you have a private selfie collection that you don’t want the rest of the world to learn about. We’re not anti-selfies, but if you like taking selfies but don’t want them in an easily accessible location on your phone, the “Hidden Album” may be a nice option.
How your iPhone’s “Hide Photos” function will work?
- Choose the photo, you want to hide in your image gallery.
- Then, the “Select” button in the upper righthand edge, select a photo to select it.
- Next, in the lower-left corner of your screen, tap the “Share” sign (a little box with an arrow going up from inside it).
- Don’t worry, you’re not actually going to “share” it. Then, after performing the above steps, click on the “Hide” function, which is symbolized by an eyeball crossed by a line, after scrolling through the sharing options. Then click the “Hide Photo” option when a menu appeared.
Perhaps it isn’t enough security for you.
Here’s what you should do in that case:
- In the “Photos” settings, scroll down to where it says “Hidden Album. In your “Photos” settings, scroll down to where it says “Hidden Album.” There will be a toggle to the right of it. When the “Hidden Album” label is lit up green and switched to the right, it will appear under “Utilities” under your “Albums” tab under “UtilitiesWhen you set off “Secret Album,” it no longer shows under “Utilities,” which means no one can view your secret photographs.
- You may turn it off without the risk of losing your concealed photographs. When you turn it back on, your secret photo album will appear exactly where it was previously.
Please keep in mind that even if you take these safeguards, if someone has all of the information we provided in this essay, they will be able to view your concealed photographs. The “Hide Photo” feature isn’t a guaranteed way to keep your photos hidden. In order to do so, Apple would have to develop a passcode/fingerprint/facial ID security system to prevent access to hidden photos. And, for some reason, we haven’t arrived yet.
Still, using the “Hide Photo” feature is still a smart idea because there’s always the chance that someone looking through your phone will be uninformed of this information. For the time being, the “Hide Photo” function keeps you better off than before, and it costs you nothing, so we’d say it’s well worth it.
