How To Hide Your Photos On iPhone Without Using A Third-Party App: Follow These Steps

Your iPhone may have photos that you don’t want to delete right away, but for some (privacy) reason you don’t want them to show up in your Photos Library either. You can hide all those photos on your iPhone without needing any third-party apps. Apple has provided the option to hide your photos on your iPhone by default. You can use that option to make sure your photos aren’t visible to your loved ones looking at your photo library.

Apple has long allowed users to hide photos from their photo library. But the hidden photos were part of a “hidden” album that was still visible in the Albums section of the Photos app. That experience was updated last year with the release of iOS 14.

With the iOS 14 release, you can completely hide photos on your iPhone, without using any third-party app. Here’s how to do it.
