In this video tutorial, I am going to show you how to hide photos and videos on iOS 11.2 iPhone with password protection. No jailbreak is required for this to work.
There are several methods to hide your pictures and videos in iPhone that are as under:
- #1 Hide Pictures on iPhone using Built-in feature of iOS
- #2 Using Notes to Lock Photos on iPhone
- #3 Using a FREE Photo and Video Hide App to Hide your Photos from iPhone
This was the old method but after that iOS 14 updates the photo hiding feature for iPhone photos, that you don't want to share with others, but neither delete. Users can now hide the 'Hidden Album' and conceal their images and videos a notch better.
Privacy isn't total though, because the Hidden folder is still available in the image picker section of third-party apps. This means that anyone that can access your iPhone, when it's unlocked, can find your hidden files if it tries to attach photos, via a third-party image sharing application.
We're still waiting for the option to restrict access to photos with a Passcode or Face ID, but I guess we'll have to add this to the Wishlist of iOS 15.
You have to watch this video if you want to know how to really hide photos on your iPhone.
iOS14 fixes this and there is a new setting available in the Photos section... called 'Hidden Album'.
Be careful here: 'When enabled the Hidden Album will appear in the Albums tab, under Utilities.'
So, you actually have to disable it, to hide the album.
