When it comes to managing an extensive photo library, Google Photos is one of the most powerful tools out there, even on iPhone. Google is making it more potent for Apple users, as the company has announced that its Locked Folder feature is coming to iPhone.
Google first introduced Locked Folders on Pixel phones in May 2021, and now the company is planning to expand it to other devices. Google announced that additional Android phones will receive the feature “soon,” and iPhones would get the feature early in 2022.
Once a Locked Folder is created, images and videos in it will be hidden from the main Google Photos feed, so the next time you’re scrolling through showing your mom photos of your dog, those other images you sent to your partner won’t accidentally show up.
Instead, you’ll need to go to the folder and unlock it if you want to see the media hidden inside. It’s a nice layer of security that can save you from some embarrassment or worse. You can protect the folder with a password or biometrics, so you can make sure it’s locked down in the way that’s easiest for you to get into it when you need to.
