If you don't know there is a feature in the photos app that allows you to add photos and videos to an album titled "Hidden" this album is easily accessible by simply tapping it the feature only removes them from memories and camera roll, the hidden album can be opened by anyone. This tweak protects the album, it is blurred out and will only be viewable once you authenticate. There are no settings to configure.
How to hide a photo:
Select the photo/video you wish to hide, on the bottom bar select the share icon
Then scroll right and you will see hide on the bottom row select it and that's it
Note: On my iPhone X FaceID does not seem to work instead it presents the passcode (which works fine) I'm not sure if it's just mine or all of them. You need to have passcode enabled for this tweak to work !!

I can access to my hidden album normally without any authentification
Works perfectly on iPhone 6+ iOS 11 unc0ver 2.0.2 with latest Substrate. Now I can continue my, ahem, research.
Make sense for people who would like to "really" hide the photos, for whatever reasons, from stalking.
