Hide the Hidden Photos Album on iPhone

Even if you hide photos on the iPhone, they are still visible from the Photos app. All you need to do is to open the Hidden album. But, if you want to truly hide all your hidden photos on iPhone, you need to hide the Hidden Photos Album.

  1. Open Settings on the iPhone.
  2. Go to Photos.
  3. Toggle off the option “Hidden Album.”

Once you disable the hidden album, all your hidden photos will not be found from the Photos app. No one can access your photos now. If you want to see the hidden folder, go to Settings > Photos and enable the Hidden Album option.

When the Photos app has all the privacy features, you do not need another app to hide photos on iPhone. With the new feature, hidden photos are even more secure by hiding the album itself.
