You may keep particular images or photo albums private on your Facebook account if you don’t want others to view them. We’ll teach you how to accomplish it from both your PC and your mobile phone.
What You Should Know Before Changing the Privacy Settings on Your Photos
When you adjust the privacy settings for your images, keep in mind that your cover photo and profile photo will always be available to the public. If your picture was submitted by another person, you may untag yourself from it, but you can’t modify the visibility of the photo.
Only the person who uploaded the album has the ability to alter the album’s privacy settings. In addition, if your picture was posted as part of an album, you’ll need to adjust the album’s privacy settings to conceal it.
If you like, you may later unhide your images and albums so that everyone can view them.
