If you worry about letting other people use your iPhone while they see your photos, you may want to try this trick.
A woman has shown in a viral TikTok video how to change your iPhone’s settings so that only one picture appears in your Photos app.
tiktoker Katrina Mogus Walks you through the hack in his video.
Holding her iPhone open on the Settings menu she says: “In the Accessibility settings we’re going to turn on Guided Access and enable your passcode.
“Now when you hand over your phone to someone just three-tap the lock button and click on Guided Access.
“Keep your settings the same as mine so they can only see that one photo.”
Mogus’ screen shows it toggles next to the words Motion and Keyboard but everything else is off.
When you hand someone your phone so they can see something you need to remember, click the lock button on the right hand three times.
Then, enter your passcode and that person won’t be able to flick through your photos and get stuck on one.
You can also use Guided Access to other apps, which is useful when you give your phone to a child to play a game with.
To turn off Guided Access, click the Lock button three times again, and then enter your passcode.
Apple explains: “Guided Access puts the iPhone into one app and allows you to control what features are available.
“To start Guided Access, triple-click the side button in the app you want to use.”
The Tiktok video has been liked nearly half a million times so far.
