The "Albums" tab in Photos is great for sorting through the images and videos on your iPhone as you can limit things by your recent photos and recordings, apps used , media types, people, places, and so on. However, if you never look at all those folders it can become an overwhelming mess. In addition, there may be some collections that you don't want others to see.
While you can delete some folders on the Albums tab in Photos, this only applies to custom folders you've created or galleries from third-party apps like WhatsApp or Instagram that you photographed or filmed with. And as for hiding content from others who may have access to or access your iPhone, the "Hidden" album is simply worth nothing if someone knows where to look.
To hide every album and folder ̵
You can install it via Cydia or Sileo, and unlike most customizations that can be accessed and keyed through the Settings app, AlbumHider works directly in the Photos app, eliminating the need to go around again between apps. That said, it is well hidden in Photos, which is a good thing if you hide "Hidden".
Step 1: Install Julio Verne & # 39; s Repo
AlbumHider is not available by default in Cydia or Sileo, which means you have to install an external repository to get it. To do that, add julioverne.github.io to the "Sources" list for both apps. (Note: Any repos you add in Cydia are not automatically added to Sileo and vice versa.)
With Verne & # 39; s repository installed, open Cydia or Sileo and search for and select "AlbumHider" in the "Search" tab. Then click "Install" (Cydia) or "Get" (Sileo) on the next page. From there tap on "Confirm" (Cydia) or swipe up from the bottom of the "Queue" card and tap on "Confirm" next to it (Sileo). Wait for the tweak to install and then click "Restart SpringBoard" to restart and finish.
To open AlbumHider, open Photos, tap the Albums tab, then click "View All" in the My Albums section. Now select "Edit" in the top right corner just like you would if you want to delete custom or third-party albums, then tap the bookmark icon to the left of "Done".
You will then see the AlbumHider switches. Turn on the switches next to the albums and folders you want to make disappear, such as & # 39; Time-lapse & # 39 ;, & # 39; Imports & # 39; and & # 39; Screen Recordings & # 39; – every album is a fair game. When you're done, click "Apply (Exit)" in the top right corner to set the changes. When you return to the main tab view, all selected albums that you have enabled will no longer be displayed here.
Now you have a clean experience which allows you to focus on only your most used albums and folders. To see a certain type of media content, just repeat step 3, but uncheck the folder or collection and save it to go back to the Albums tab.
