How to Use Markup to Censor Photos and Screenshots on an iPhone

The days of using fancy software to censor information on your photos are gone. The Markup feature on every iPhone and iPad allows you to doodle, draw, and insert shapes on your photos in any size and color. There’s not much you can’t hide when you put it to use.

Read on to see how you can use Markup to hide information in your photos or screenshots.

Use an Opaque Pen in Markup

The Markup feature is easily accessible and under the Edit option when viewing an image on an iPhone or iPad. There are plenty of ways you can use Markup on your iPhone. You can use it to scribble freehand or insert an opaque shape over all the information you want to hide.

To scribble over your photo, follow these steps:

  1. Open the image you want to make changes to and tap on the Edit button.
  2. Select the icon with the marker, and the Markup popup will appear.
  3. Select the pen or highlighter tool. You can choose the thickness and color of the lines you will be drawing. Whatever color you choose, make sure the opacity is all the way to the right.
  4. Draw lines over your information to block it out. Make sure you scribble enough lines over it that no one can work out what’s underneath.
