Your mobile is your temple, of course. And everything in it is strict, private, and confidential to others. But sometimes you have to show someone a photo, or you leave the mobile and the person starts gossiping at the gallery and the main reel of images. You have no right to do that, and on the other hand there may be photos that we don’t want anyone else to see.

The solution? If you have an iPhone, iPad or Mac it is very simple: Hide the photos you want with a function that both iOS and macOS have available. How? Thus:

How to hide photos on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch

  1. Open the Photos app .
  2. Select the photo or video you want to hide.
  3. Tap the Share icon (the box with the up arrow), and then the Hide option .
  4. Confirm that you want to hide the photo or video.

How to hide photos on Mac

  1. Open Photos.
  2. Select the photo or video you want to hide.
  3. Right- click the photo and select Hide Photo . You can also hide a photo from the menu bar by selecting Image> Hide Photo . Or if you press Command-L.
  4. Confirm that you want to hide the photo or video.
  5. If you use iCloud Photos, the photos you hide on one device will also be hidden on all others. If you have iOS 10 or earlier or macOS Sierra or earlier, you can still see the hidden photos or videos in the albums you have created.
