Hi, can you add feature to hide selective sensitive photos in Lightroom CC Mobile App? I like to show my friends/family pictures on the Lightroom app directly, it would be nice to hide some photos besides putting them in folders. Maybe even password protected perhaps? Thanks!

Based on how you wrote about this, it seems you are in charge of showing the photos on your device. So, why can't you just use the filtering possibilities in the library module - give colors or stars to the photos and then filter what is shown by requiring more stars or certain colors?

Thanks for the suggestion, but this means that I have to color / star / rate all of my pictures except for those that I don't want to show. Seems quite a tedious process. Would be nicer if I could hide only certain photos which requires password to be viewed. That way even if I pass my device to another family member, the wouldn't be able to see the photos accidentally for example.

Just want to be clear, I am currently only using Lightroom CC mobile, not Lightroom Classic CC.

ขอบคุณสําหรับคําแนะนํา แต่นี่หมายความว่าฉันต้องใส่สี / ดาว / อัตราภาพทั้งหมดของฉันยกเว้นภาพที่ฉันไม่ต้องการให้แสดง ดูเหมือนจะเป็นกระบวนการที่ค่อนข้างน่าเบื่อ น่าจะดีกว่านี้ถ้าฉันสามารถซ่อนเฉพาะบางภาพที่ต้องใช้รหัสผ่านในการดู ด้วยวิธีนี้แม้ว่าฉันจะส่งอุปกรณ์ของฉันไปยังสมาชิกในครอบครัวคนอื่น ๆ ก็จะไม่สามารถดูรูปถ่ายได้โดยไม่ตั้งใจ

this! Or at least implement a 'hide photos' feature and have a smart album where all hidden photos are stored. 

Currently I use 1 star to mark photos I don't want everyone to see (pregnancy photoshoots, for example) but in this case each time you launch the app (Mobile or Apple TV) you have to go to the filtering options, while your photos are visible.

In addition to that, because 1 Star is greater than 0 Stars, I'm now forced to Star (2 and above) each photo I take for it to be visible... 

Frustrating to say the least.

I hope you know that you can select a bunch of photos and then (with one click) assign all of them the same rating or color. This would make the solution less tedious.

I don’t think this is available on Lightroom CC Mobile. Tried to look for it.
