Welcome to this tutorial on how to find hidden albums on your iPhone. In this article, we will explore the step-by-step process to uncover those hidden treasures in your photos app.

Why Hide Albums?

Before we dive into the details, let’s understand why you might want to hide albums on your iPhone. There could be various reasons for hiding albums – maybe you have some personal or sensitive photos that you don’t want others to stumble upon accidentally, or perhaps you just want to declutter your photo library. Whatever the reason may be, hiding albums can provide an added layer of privacy and organization.

Step 1: Open the Photos App

To begin our quest for hidden albums, open the Photos app on your iPhone. You can usually find it on your home screen or in your app drawer.

Step 2: Tap on ‘Albums’

Once you’re in the Photos app, locate and tap on the ‘Albums’ tab at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to a list of all your albums.

Step 3: Scroll Down and Look for ‘Hidden’

In the list of albums, scroll down until you find an album called ‘Hidden’. This album contains all the photos and videos that you have hidden on your iPhone.


  • If you don’t see a ‘Hidden’ album, it means you haven’t hidden any photos yet. Move on to step 4 if that’s the case.
  • If there are multiple hidden albums visible, tap on any one of them as they all contain the same hidden content.

Step 4: Unhide Photos

If you want to unhide specific photos from the ‘Hidden’ album, follow these steps:

  1. Open the ‘Hidden’ album.
  2. Select the photo(s) you want to unhide by tapping on them. A blue checkmark will appear on the selected photos.
  3. Tap on the ‘Share’ button at the bottom-left corner of the screen.
  4. In the share sheet that appears, tap on ‘Unhide’. This will remove the selected photos from the ‘Hidden’ album and make them visible in your main library or relevant albums.

Step 5: Hide Albums (Optional)

If you want to hide albums other than the default ‘Hidden’ album, follow these steps:

  1. Go back to your list of albums in the Photos app.
  2. Select an album you want to hide by tapping on it.
  3. Tap on the three-dot icon (..) at the top-right corner of the screen.
  4. In the menu that appears, tap on ‘Hide Album’.


  • If you change your mind and want to unhide an album, follow steps 1-3 above and then tap on ‘Unhide Album’.


You have successfully learned how to find hidden albums on your iPhone. Whether you wanted to safeguard personal memories or declutter your photo library, hiding albums can be a useful feature for iPhone users. Remember, you can always unhide photos and albums whenever you want.
