Some users prefer to hide WhatsApp photos from their smartphone gallery. The good news is that there is an easy way to hide these photos.
How to hide WhatsApp photos from gallery on Android?
All the photos we receive in our chats in the app are stored directly in the phone gallery. If you don’t want these photos to be seen, there is an option that makes it possible in the app settings. This is a very simple process, you just need to follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp.
- Press the three vertical dots.
- Enter the parameters.
- Access the discussions.
- Look for the Media visibility option.
- Disable this option.
Disabling this option will hide all photos in the app that are in the gallery. The photos are hidden, but they are still on your smartphone, so they are not deleted. If you want to see them again, just re-enable the media visibility option.
How to hide photos of a specific cat?
You can only hide photos received in one or two specific WhatsApp chats. The app also has the option to hide only photos belonging to a particular cat, these photos will not be displayed in your phone gallery. Follow these steps:
- Open WhatsApp on your phone.
- Search for the cat in question.
- Enter the chat in question.
- Click on the contact name or the name of the chat (if it is a group chat).
- Go to the Media visibility section.
- Click No in the window that appears.
With these steps, the photos from those particular chats will no longer be displayed in your phone’s gallery. As in the previous case, the photos are hidden, but not deleted. Hiding photos does not save space on the device, as they are still stored on the device, they are simply not visible.
