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 that you don't need any third-party app to do this task. Let's see how to do it.

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" (or "View contact" if you've selected chat of a contact) 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
  • Save

That's it. 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 from this chat are still displayed in the gallery.

For All WhatsApp Contacts and Groups

    Open WhatsApp.
  • angle-right
    Hit Overflow menu (three vertical dots) > Settings > Chats.
  • angle-right
    Hit "Media visibility."
Disabled Media visibility
  • Save

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