How to make your Photos Private on Facebook

if you don’t want people to see some of your photos or photo albums, you can make these items private on your Facebook account. You can do this from your computer and mobile device, and we’ll show you how to do it.

What to know when changing your photos’ privacy settings

When you change your photos’ privacy options, know that your cover photo and profile photo will always be visible to the public. If your photo was uploaded by another user, you can remove the tag from the photo but you can’t change the visibility of that photo.

For photo albums, only the user who posted the album can change their privacy settings. Also, if your photo is shared as part of an album, you will have to change the album’s privacy settings to hide your photo.

Later, if you want, you can show your photos and albums for everyone to see.
