Album "Hidden" (Hidden album) In the Photos app on iOS, iPadOS, and macOS are places to store photos and videos that you've manually hidden so they don't appear elsewhere. But since iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS Big Sur, Apple has added privacy to your "Hidden" album.
In this article, I'll show you step-by-step instructions on how to hide "Hidden" albums in the Photos app on your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
Hide your photos and privacy
Before iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS 11 Big Sur, hiding a photo or video temporarily removed it from the Photos tab. As a result, you can only see them in the special "Hidden" album near the bottom of the Albums tab. But if anyone borrows your device, they can easily go to the Album tab and find your "Hidden" album.
On iOS 14, Apple added an option that allows you to always hide the album "Hidden". That means it will temporarily disappear from the Album tab and the new Photos sidebar on the iPad. The only place where the “Hidden” Album will show up is the redesigned image-selection interface available in the third-party apps that use it.
Follow the steps below to learn how to hide the "Hidden" album in the Photos app on iPhone and iPad.
