New Delhi, June 15: Google has become the most important tool for all users whether they are smartphones or computers. Gmail and other features and various features are constantly being provided to the Google user. It now includes a new feature. This feature is primarily for Google Photos. Using this feature, users can hide their personal photos and videos.
Technology company Google last month announced a new feature in Google Photos on Google I / O. Accordingly, the company has introduced a locked folder feature for Google Photos. This allows the user to hide personal photos and videos in a secure folder with a passcode or fingerprints.
Photos or videos stored in this locked folder will not appear in Photo Gallery, Search, Album or Memory. Also, third-party applications may not display such photos or videos. Hidden photos cannot be backed up to the cloud. If you have previously backed up a photo or video, Google will delete it, and these photos and videos will be in the local folder.
