Hide iPhone & iPad Photos

I am sure most Mac people do their photography with their iPhones. It is just so easy to do, and the iPhone camera does a good job with images. If you keep copies of your most recent photos on your iPhone or iPad, you may wish to hide some of them occasionally. Maybe you just had a bad hair day, or you don’t want someone to see what their birthday present looks like. If you think you might want to hide photos on your devices, here is how you do that.

Hide Photos

On your iPhone, go into the Photos App, then tap on the “Select” button at the top of the screen.

Your iPhone screen will look similar to this, only with your photos.

All you have to do is tap on the photos to select the ones you wish to hide.

Next, tap on the “Share” icon in the bottom-left corner of the window. In the next screen, scroll down and select “Hide”.

You will get a pop-up for you to confirm the hidden photos.

When you tap on “Hide”, the photos are hidden from view. You can make them show again later if you wish.


If you need to hide some photos on your iPhone or iPad, it is easy to do so.
