Sometimes for privacy purpose, we would like to hide our videos that we stored on iPhone 6. You may wonder how. To cut to the chase, I will show you how to hide videos on your iPhone 6. What you need is merely your iPhone with you. By the way, the device that we use for demonstration is running iOS 8. It will be similar on iOS 9 or the earlier system like iOS 7.

Step 1. Enable "Restrictions"
First of all, you need to find "Settings" – "General" on your iPhone. After that, choose "Restrictions" for the later settings.
Go to Restriction Settings on iPhone
Step 2 Enable restrictions and hide videos
After selecting "Restrictions", you will see the option "Enable Restrictions" in blue on the top. Click it and you will be asked to enter a restriction password for two times. After that, restriction has been enabled and you will be asked to scroll down to the "ALLOWED CONTENT". Choose the "Movie" option and choose "Don't Allow Movies".

Step 3. Check Videos on iPhone
After the previous steps, you've successfully hide your movies on iPhone 6. Now, when you go to the "Videos" app, you will find it empty as the windows below shows.

Note: To watch your videos again, you can go to disable the restriction and enter the password you just set up and your videos are back.

That's it. With only three simple steps as mentioned before, you've successfully protected your iPhone videos from peeping by others. If you have any other problems on setting up iPhone, Android or any data transfer issues, please feel free to let us know, we will be glad to help.
