There is an easy way to hide your private photos on an Apple iPhone thanks to a little-known setting in the camera roll.

For those looking to keep their bikini selfies and screenshots away from prying eyes the ‘hidden’ album option is a useful tool to know about.

To start with you will need to open your camera roll and find the photos you want to hide, selecting them as they scroll.

You can select as many images as you’d like at one time, which is helpful if you’re wanting to hide an entire section.

The same easy system doesn’t currently exist on the Samsung Gallery app for your most-used album.

At the moment android users can only hide folders created by third-party apps like WhatsApp or Instagram.

For this reason it seems to be more of a feature for reducing the clutter inside the gallery rather than something to keep away prying eyes.
