The ability to hide photo albums on iPhone has been one of the biggest requests from loyal iPhone users. Most of us have hundreds, or maybe even thousands of photos on our mobile devices. What about those super personal photos? With all the moments we are capturing on our phones, it can be tough to stay organized and sort through all our photos to actually find what we are looking for.
if you’re like most people, your camera roll is filled with photos, some of which you might not even remember were in there! What happens if you misplace your phone, it gets stolen or in the hands of the wrong person? Well, that can be a scary scenario depending on the amount of private photos that you have on your iPhone, and who ends up getting access to those photos.
You can never be too careful with your personal privacy, and if we’re being honest, most of our personal information can be tied back to our iPhones. Do you do one tap purchases on the app store? Or have your passwords automatically saved to access your banking apps? The list goes on and on. While password managers are slick for keeping that information safe, what about the private photos on your iPhone?
When it's time to hide photo albums on your iPhone Apple gives you a couple of options. The first option to hide photo albums on iPhone is to use the hide photos feature. While looking at the photos on your camera roll you have the option to hide the photo. This can be useful as it will hide the photos from all of your albums, including the standard camera roll.
The catch? All of the hidden photos on your iPhone will show up in their very own photo album for anyone to access. Not so hidden is it?
Now, you can search the web and find hundreds of random ideas to hide photos on your iphone, many of which require some weird workarounds and covering your tracks.
