Google Photos has recently updated its Locked Folder feature, expanding its availability to iOS users and allowing access through the web. The Locked Folder feature was previously only available for Android users but has now been extended to cater to iOS users as well as those who prefer accessing their photos through the web.
The Locked Folder feature enables users to store photos that they do not wish to be seen by others. Photos within this album will not be displayed as previews when scrolling through the main page or during the uploading process. Access to this folder can be locked with a PIN code or by utilizing the device’s authentication system.
According to Google, this feature will gradually roll out and be made available starting from today onwards.
