WhatsApp is the gift that keeps on giving. It’s revolutionized the way we chat with our friends and family and the team behind it are constantly adding features and things to make it even better. Today we’re going to be looking at one of the newest features – hiding your images from your gallery.
In order to do this, you will have to update to the latest version of WhatsApp, so make sure you do that before continuing on with the steps listed below. Once you’ve done that, simply read on to discover how to hide your WhatsApp images from your gallery.
Hiding Your WhatsApp Images
The process is incredibly easy so once you’ve updated your version of the app, simply open it up and navigate to the main home screen (which lists all of your chats).
- Tap on the three dots in the top right hand corner.
- Go to “Settings”.
- Tap on the “Data and Storage Usage” option
If you haven’t updated the app, the following option won’t be listed so make sure you’ve updated to the latest version!
- Once you’ve tapped on that, scroll down to the bottom of the menu displayed.
- Under “Media Visibility” there will be a check box.
- Uncheck that box.
That’s it. If you take the tick out of that box, all of your WhatsApp photos will be safely hidden from your main gallery – the perfect way to keep prying eyes away from the content stored on your device.
