Nude photos or “nudes” have burst onto the scene over the last few years with the rise of picture messaging apps like Snapchat and Instagram. With our cameras now right in our pocket, and instant feedback after snapping a photo of yourself, it’s not super surprising that people are storing nude photos on their iPhone.
Back in 2017, frequent nude photo takers found a simple hack to look up all nude photos on your iPhone. You can give it a shot, here is what was discovered. In your iPhone photo gallery you’ll see the option search your photos. From here, it was discovered that you can type in “Brassiere” into the search box. The result? Well, it depends on the type of photos you’ve been taking on your iPhone. For some, this may yield no results. For others, it’s a quick way to search and identify all of the nude photos on your iPhone. Check out this article for more information about how your iPhone is tracking the pictures you’ve taken.
It’s worth mentioning that the search feature on your iPhone isn’t all bad. The categories on your iPhone photos can be super helpful for you to track down a photo pretty quickly. When opening up the search feature it breaks down your photos into different categories, places and people. While this is a pretty helpful feature for some of us, it can be a little scary to think that Apple has the ability to categorize our personal photos.
While we are not advocating for you to store hundreds of nude photos on your iPhone, we are also realistic that many people do! Whatever your reasons are, we believe that you should be able to be your true self. If that means grabbing a couple nude photos for that special someone, then you should be able to do that privately and safely! So how do you stay safe when storing nude photos on your iPhone? See below for a few tips and tricks. Do Your Research The first step to safely storing nude photos on your iPhone is to understand where your photos are actually stored. For most iPhone users, their photos are backed up in their iCloud account and stored on those servers. While Apple has some of the best technology in the world, they are still not completely safe from cell phone hackers and there is always a risk involved when your personal information is stored on any server. If you have a library of nude photos on your iPhone that are also saved in your iCloud, then all a hacker has to do is gain access to your password to uncover your most personal information. Check out this article for helpful tips on how to block hackers from your phone. Two Factor Authentication If you chose to keep nude photos saved on your iPhone and iCloud, be sure to enable two factor authentication. While this simple step can be a drag when trying to log in, it can be super helpful to identify who is trying to access your personal information. If someone is trying to hack into your iCloud account, two factor authentication will notify you to ensure its you before opening the doors to your account. So don’t skip this one as it is a basic yet effective tactic to keep your phone and iCloud account secure. For Keepsafe users, you can enable alerts or even snap a photo every time your password is entered incorrectly. Learn more about break-in alerts here. Hide Photos on your iphone The most basic advice that we can offer the nude photo enthusiasts out there is to keep them hidden. Out of the box, your iPhone has some very basic functionality to hide your sexy photos. When scrolling through photos on your iPhone you have the ability to select specific photos or videos to “hide” them. This can be effective, as hiding photos will remove them from your photo library and moments. Which is a great first step to safely storing nude photos on your iPhone. The drawback of the basic ability to hide photos on your iPhone is that these photos are not truly hidden. The worst part? Apple places all of your hidden photos into its own separate album. So if someone wants to find your secret stash of hidden nude photos on your iPhone, it really doesn’t get much easier than navigating to your private photo album and unlocking the goods! Keepsafe Photo Vault for Hiding Photos If you do have nude photos on your iPhone, the most effective way to safely store them on your device is through the Keepsafe Photo Vault. Keepsafe enables users to remove photos from their devices’ photo gallery, while also providing multiple layers of security to unlock access to those super personal nude photos on your iPhone. On top of having your very own personal photo vault to hide photos, Keepsafe also gives you the ability to set separate pass codes for specific photo albums, providing an additional layer of security just in case someone happens to unlock your photo vault.
