How to Password Protect Photos On iPhone Without any App


Let’s admit, we all have some private photos in our phone’s gallery that we don’t want to share with others. To deal with such issues, the iPhone allows you to create photo albums and hide photos.

Apple offers the ‘Hidden’ option for photos, that prevents the images from appearing in the gallery and widgets. But, hiding isn’t really as secure as password protection. Anyone who knows how to use the iPhone can unhide the hidden photos in just a few taps.

Although not directly, the iPhone does offer a few ways to lock photos and videos. There are actually two ways to lock your pictures on the iPhone. One way is to lock your pictures via the Notes app. Another way is to use a third-party photo vault app.
