New Delhi. Technology company Google announced several new features for Google Photos during its Google I/O conference last month. Under the same, the company has started the Locked Folder feature for Google Photos, so that users will be able to hide their sensitive photos or videos in a folder protected with passcode or fingerprint.

Photos or videos saved in locked folders will not appear in Photo Grid, Search, Albums and Memories. They also won’t show up in third party apps. However, hidden photos cannot be backed up to the cloud. If any photos/videos have already been backed up, Google will remove them from the cloud and they will only exist locally in the folder.

To use the feature, users can start using this new locked folder by going to Library > Utilities > Locked Folder. Once users set this up, they can start adding their existing photos or videos to their library.

Users can also set the Google Camera app to save new photos or videos directly to a locked folder. To use this feature, users have to open the camera app. Tap on the gallery icon in the top right corner and select ‘Locked Folder’ from the list.

This feature is being rolled out only for Google Pixel smartphones, which includes the Google Pixel 3 series, Pixel 4 series and Pixel 5. However, this feature remains exclusive to Pixel smartphones for now. The company says that it will roll out Locked Folders for other Android devices and everyone will be able to use it this year.
