Like all social networking sites, Google-owned Orkut has a responsibility to protect the privacy of its users. As such, Orkut account holders can control who has access to the content they post. If you want to see someone's private pictures without hacking their account, you're going to have to ask them to allow you to do so. While there's a chance the owner of the pictures you want to view may have blocked you unintentionally, there may be a reason you can't access the material you want to see.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Click on the friend whose private pictures you want see in the "Online friends" box in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. A message box will appear.

  2. 2

    Type a message into the box asking your friend if she could grant you access to her private pictures. If your friend is offline, the message will be delivered when she logs in to her account or checks her e-mails.

  3. 3

    Advise your friend how to allow you to view her private pictures if she doesn't know how to do so. She'll need to log into her account, click "Photos" on her profile page, click "Edit" by the side of her photo albums and then choose "Selected Friends". She'll then need to choose you from her list of friends and click on "Done".

  4. 4

    Log into your Orkut account, go to your friend's profile, and click on the "Photos" link to view her pictures.
