Once a photo is hidden, it will disappear from the Library tab. The photo will now live in an album called Hidden, which can be found if you scroll down to the bottom in the Albums tab.

Hiding photos this way is good enough for most of us. However, it is still pretty easy for people to stumble upon what you’ve hidden if they looked around in your Photos app.

In iOS 14, Apple is allowing users to also hide the Hidden album.

To hide the album, go to the Settings app, tap Photos. Somewhere in the middle of all the settings available, you will see a toggle new to iOS 14 called Hidden Album.

With the toggle turned on, the Hidden album will appear under Utilities in the Albums tab, so to really hide your photos, disable Hidden Album by turning the toggle off.
