Sensitive content

If you have photos or videos that are critically important to you and shouldn't be deleted by mistake, or if there are some that you prefer not to deal with in CleanMy®Phone, you can mark them as sensitive and add them to the Sensitive folder. This will make the app ignore such photos and videos and not show them in the scan results.

If you use CleanMy®Phone on two or more devices with the same Apple ID, turn on iCloud Sync for the app. This way, the Sensitive folder will stay up to date across all your devices, meaning you won't have to review its contents on each one separately.

To mark a photo or a video as sensitive, tap it to view it in full, then tap the Save icon. CleanMy®Phone will add the item to the Sensitive folder and hide it from the scan results.


If you used Gemini Photos before and then upgraded to CleanMy®Phone, the photos you had in the Ignore list automatically migrate to the Sensitive folder.

To review and manage the contents of the Sensitive folder:

  1. Tap Settings, then tap Sensitive.

  2. Tap through each category and review its contents.

    To take a closer look at a specific item, tap it to open full screen.

    In the full-screen view, you can also enhance the photo, add the item to an album or favorites, share it, and view its metadata.

  3. Select the photos and videos you want to remove from the Sensitive folder or delete from your photo library.

    To select all items in a category at once, tap Select All.

  4. After you finish reviewing:

    • To remove the selected items from the Sensitive folder and make them available for organizing and decluttering again, click Restore.

      The app removes only those items you've selected in the currently viewed category.

    • To delete the selected items from your photo library, click the More button in the top right corner, select Clean Selected, then confirm the action.

      The app deletes only those items you've selected in the currently viewed category.

      CleanMy®Phone doesn't delete your photos and videos completely. You have 30 days to recover them if necessary.
