Control which apps can access Photos in iOS

Manage which applications can access the Photos app on your iPad, iPhone or iPod

Here's how you can control which apps have access to Photos in iOS.

1. Go to Settings.

2. Go to Privacy.

3. Tap on Photos.

4. You'll see a list of apps that have requested access to Photos.

5. Toggle the switch for each app to the on or off position to grant or restrict access to Photos.

According to OS X Daily:

iOS allows users to control what apps can access the images and photos stored on their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This is handled through the Privacy settings and offers granular control over which specific third party applications are allowed to pull images from the Photos app, Camera Roll, and also whether or not they are able to save new images to the on-device storage within Photos app as well.
