This disclosure describes techniques to secure and remove private images (e.g., photos) from display on user devices. With user permission, a device examines stored user images for private content and relocates detected private images to a locked album on the device. The private album can include user-adjustable settings to control the organization and distribution of private images. Such features enable the device to automatically seclude private images, thus removing such images from potential undesirable discovery by other users that may use the device or other devices that access a collection of images on the device.
