Last updated: February 6, 2015 at 19:19 pm

It’s not really a good idea to keep your photos and videos on your iPhone public. After all, it’s your private life. And it hurts to see someone take your phone for something else and later browse through your camera app to look at those crazy pics you have captured.

You may also be the kind who leaves their smartphone unattended. In such cases, there’s one iPhone feature that you’ll swear by. It will let you hide your important photos and videos in the Photos app in a couple of seconds. Just follow these simple steps:

Steps For Hiding iOS 8 Images Permanently:

  • Launch Photos app
  • Long press or hold your finger on a chosen photo or video
  • This will bring up an Options menu
  • From the Options menu, you can select Hide
  • When you select Hide, your photo or video will get hidden from Moments, Collections and Years

Note: Hidden photos remain visible in the albums view under a new ‘Hidden’ album.

Now, you can keep your phone unattended or give it to anyone without worrying about publicising your private life anymore. What a sigh of relief!
