How to Hide WhatsApp Images and Videos from Gallery

By default, the downloaded WhatsApp images and videos are shown in the gallery.

However, if you prefer, you can hide them from the gallery.

And, the best thing is you don't need any third-party app to do this task and let's see how to do this task.

For individual Contact or Group

  • angle-double-right
    Open WhatsApp.
  • angle-double-right
    Long press the chat and you can see Overflow Menu (three vertical dots) beside "Archive." Tap it.
  • angle-double-right
    Hit on the "Group info" which you can find between "Add chat shortcut" and "Mark as unread."
  • angle-double-right
    Now, under "Custom notifications," you can see "Media visibility." Hit it.
  • angle-double-right
    In the popup, tap "No" and then hit "OK."
Selected No

That's all. From now on, the newly downloaded images and videos from this chat will not be shown in the gallery. Keep in mind that the existing ones are still displayed in the gallery.

For All WhatsApp Contacts and Groups

  • angle-right
    Open WhatsApp.
  • angle-right
    Hit the Overflow Menu (three vertical dots) at the top.
  • angle-right
    Tap "Settings" which you can find below "Starred messages."
  • angle-right
    Tap "Chats."
  • angle-right
    Now under "Media visibility," you can see "Show media in gallery." Tap on it.
Unchecked Show media in gallery

That's all. From now on, the newly downloaded images and videos of the entire WhatsApp will not be shown in the gallery. Remember that the existing ones are still displayed in the gallery.
