The Challenge of Creating A Locked Picture Folder on iPhone

The native iPhone Photos app doesn’t offer any built-in ways to lock individual photo albums. This makes it challenging for users who want to keep some of their photos private, as anyone who has access to their phone can view all of their photos. The photos you take, while personal, can also be subject to theft. Hence, restricting access to certain files and photos are important. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. In this blog post, we’re going to look at different methods to create a locked picture folder on your iPhone.

Things You Should Prepare for

Before we dive into the different methods, there are a few things you should prepare to ensure the success of your locked picture folder creation. These include:

  • Updating to the latest version of iOS on your iPhone.
  • Downloading any needed apps from the App Store
  • A list of specific photos that you want to put in your locked picture folder
  • Possibly a method to keep a password you select securely. We recommend writing it down and storing it in a safe place.
  • Method 1: Using the “Notes” app

    The Notes app on your iPhone is not just for taking notes. You can also create folders to keep photos and other confidential documents safe. Here’s how:

    1. Open the "Notes" app on your iPhone.
    • Simple steps to follow
    • No need to download a third-party app

    • The pictures can easily be transferred out


    Q1: Can you copy or move the photo from the locked folder?

    A: Yes, you can. Method 1 does not provide full-proof safety; rather, it is just a way to keep photos secure from being seen accidentally.

    Creating a locked picture folder on your iPhone is a great way to keep your private photos and memories safe. Depending on your specific needs, preferences, and iPhone accessories, there are a few different methods you can use.
