    I want to hide photos which I have saved in my iPhone 6. I'm aware that iPhone users can "hide" photos in their phones by putting them in a hide folder, but the "hidden" photos still appear in the camera roll. That's not hidden to me.

    I have friends with android phones who use apps where they can save photos and safeguard them with a password. The photos are transferred from their phones to the app and they don't retain them in their phones.

    I've searched for such apps for iPhones and haven't seen anything close. I don't want photos I want to hide to remain in my phone. I've read a thread which was posted a few years ago in which someone suggested an app from the App store called, My Photo Pro Smart Photo Manager by TIDY, Inc. As of today, 2/2/207, this app is no longer in the App store.

    Thanks for your assistance.

    Hmm. I use Box for photos. It's a cloud based app with log in, passcode, and Touch ID.
    If you prefer a local album app, try this one. It has passcode and Touch ID.
    It's nice.

    I use Dropbox (secured with Touch ID) to hide/file away any photos I don’t want to keep in my Camera Roll.

    Once they’re in my Dropbox I delete them from my Camera Roll AND deleted photos folder.

    Or you could get a USB drive with a lightning connector and copy all photos from your phone to the USB stick and delete them from your phone. Most of them have a USB on the other side that you can use on a computer.

    If that's not an option then something like Box, Dropbox, etc., should work.

    Then again, if you're not doing anything you shouldn't be doing, why hide your photos? :-) But that's a sermon for another day.
