3 simple ways to hide your image on Facebook

Sharing photos on Facebook can be a great thing. But sometimes you may have images you want to keep hidden from relatives, colleagues, or future employers. Don’t be afraid: there are many ways to keep your image private.

1. Hide that image on your timeline

  • Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and go to your timeline by clicking on your name in the upper right corner.
  • Step 2: View allowed photos on your timeline. Click on “Photos” in the title. You will see it under your cover photo and between the “About” and “Friends” links. All photos allowed on your timeline will appear.
  • Step 3: Select the photos you want to hide. When you look through the photos, if you see an image you want to hide, hover over it and click the pencil icon that appears. Select “Hide timeline”.

Note that this process will work, to some degree, for the photo you’ve tagged. However, you do not have complete control of the photos because you are not the one who uploads them. So even if you hide them from your time, you should know that others tagged in them will still be able to see them.

2. Hide Your Album

  • Step 1: Log in to your Facebook account and go to your timeline by clicking on your name in the upper right corner.
  • Step 2: View allowed photos on your timeline. Click on “Photos” in the title. You will see it under your cover photo and between the “About” and “Friends” links. All photos allowed on your timeline will appear.
  • Step 3: Look at your album. After clicking on “Photos”, click on “Photo albums”. A list of your photo albums will appear.
  • Step 4: Change your viewer mode. If you want to hide an album, click on the settings icon below it. You will be given a number of options.
  • Select “Only me” if you want to hide albums completely.
  • Select “Friends” if you want only your friends and acquaintances to view the album.
  • Select “Public” if you want your friends or those who don’t know you to see it.
  • Select “Custom” if you want only specific people who can see the album.
  • Step 5: Repeat this whole process as many time as you want.
