How to hide intimate photos and videos on your iPhone or iPad.

Your iPhone has seen every side of you and knows your weaknesses well. It holds everything from a picture of your ex, to a painful memory and even intimate photos. But human nature is such that we are in constant fear someone will see them, especially a stranger. You, obviously, don’t want this to happen. If you are not comfortable deleting them permanently, you can hide them by using a secret hidden photos feature on the iPhone or iPad.

This is how you can hide nudes and other private photos on your iOS device. How to hide private photos on an iPhone or iPad Use the Photos app The simplest way to keep your nude photos and other private photos hidden from the prying eyes of your loved ones is by using the “Hide” feature in the Photos apps. It’s a native Photos app that comes pre-loaded on your iPhone or iPad.

1.) First thing first, go to your photo gallery and find the photo you wish to hide. Now tap “Select” in the upper-righthand corner, then tap the photo to select it.

2.) Next up, go to the bottom left corner of your screen and tap the “Share” icon. Relax, you are not going to “share” it with anyone.

3.) Scroll down a bit, and tap the “Hide” function. Tap the Hide photos to confirm.

Once you have done that, the selected photos will automatically disappear from the camera roll. The immediate step is to go to the Albums tap, scroll down to the “Utilities” section, and choose the Hidden album. It is to be noted that you have the option to unhide the photos, by selecting them, hitting the Share button, and choosing the Unhide option.

Well, you are still one step away from hiding the album itself. All you need to do is to open the Settings app on your iPhone or iPad, go to the Photos section, and disable the Hidden Album feature. That way all your sensitive photos will be completely hidden from others.
