On iPhone, iPad Photos app, there are always some personal photos or videos that we do not want others to see, whether it is embarrassing selfies, sensitive receipt, or personal paperwork. Setting up a screen lock passcode cannot prevent others flipping through you Camera Roll when you only want to show them a picture. For iOS 10 users, you can hide your photos without app, whereas, your photos are not really hidden in that way. In this article I recommend you an iOS app – iCareFone Pro, which allows you to move personal photos to this app and set a password to stop others accessing them.
