Sean Wolfe / Business InsiderYou can hide, and later unhide, any images in the Photos app on your iPhone.


Whether it’s a snooping partner, curious coworker, or nosy roommate, there are plenty of reasons to want to hide some of your iPhone photos.

Fortunately, if you feel you’ve gone too far when it comes to your privacy, there is a way to undo your due diligence – you can unhide photos on your iPhone.
