Anyone can open it up if they borrow your phone. So why doesn’t it not have a passcode ?

Apple doesn't like to facilitate sneakiness. The "Hidden" album has never been hidden; the pictures are simply not visible in other albums.

I've always thought the hidden photos folder should have a form of security on it as well.
