We all have those photos on our iPhone that we want to keep away from prying eyes. And whether they’re OSFY (only safe for you) photos of you, someone else or stuff you’ve pulled from the internet, you’d be mortified if someone else was to see them.
But the struggle is genuine when you need to allow someone else to use your phone. Especially those moments when you’re showing someone a meme or a photo in your gallery! You know what I’m talking about, right? That all-consuming fear that they’ll swipe, and see something they’re not supposed to!
I feel you, fam. And to make your life a little easier for you, today I’m going to share some golden knowledge with you.
There are apps that you can use to hide away those sensitive photos, and no one will be wiser! So, let me present to you, the best apps for hiding photos on iPhone.
Private Photo Vault – Pic Safe
A handy little app, it allows you to put all your private photos under lock and key. All you have to do to set up is set a passcode. And in case you forget the code, you can also link your email ID to the app.
After that, it’s a straightforward process. All you have to do is either transfer one photo at a time from your gallery or simply import them if you have a lot of them. And once you have, you can delete them from their original spot with an easy option provided by the app itself.
Secret Photo Album Hide Photo
This app has the same setup process as Pic Safe. But there is one rather amusing difference, wherein you’re not technically required to set a passcode. Kind of takes the secret out of the secret photo album, don’t you think, geniuses! But anyway, once you’ve done the smart thing of setting up a passcode, the rest of the process is similar. You can import photos from your photo app, iCloud, camera, or other files.
Secret Photo Vault – Keepsafe
Perhaps the coolest of them all, this app is the most multi-functional. In addition to hiding photos on iPhone, you can also hide videos and documents like ID cards. You also get the option of creating shared albums with your partner (in crime or love) and can set a different password on it for added security.
You know what they say, folks, it’s better to be safe than sorry! So get downloading and make sure you never get caught in the wrong um angle again!
