One of the personal things on a person’s phone is the photo library, and those photos affect their extreme privacy. Many people have a few pictures in our Photo app that they might want to keep to their selves, especially when handing over their phone to a friend or someone. However, Apple has default included a ‘Hidden’ album dedicated to the photo app. So, you can use it to omit certain media from the photo library. But unfortunately, Apple hasn’t provided any features to protect in any way using a Passcode, Touch ID, or Face ID. So, the hidden photos section is not secure, as anyone can simply access it in the Photos app without additional verification.
The feature should have been present for all the iOS versions since the Hidden album in the Photos app is introduced to secure authentication. Fortunately, Apple has finally brought it with iOS 16.
HiddenLock14 is a free jailbreak tweak that offers the same feature to your jailbroken iOS 14 devices. It requires a user’s authentication before opening the ‘Hidden’ album in the photo app. So, nobody can go into your hidden Photos.
