To access your hidden photos, go back to the main Photos app screen and tap on the Albums tab located at the bottom of the screen.

Scroll down until you find an album called Hidden. Tap on it to open and view all of your hidden photos.


If you want to unhide a photo or multiple photos, follow Step 2, select the hidden photos in the Hidden album, and then tap on Unhide.


You have successfully learned how to hide photos on your iPhone. Now you can keep your private photos away from prying eyes or organize them without cluttering your main photo library.
