This is a secure password protected vault for your photos that uses an album interface very similar to your Picture Hub.

If you're looking for completely hiding or cloaking your data behind a decoy app then try out 'Unit Converter' from the same publisher.

This is the best free app in its class on the marketplace in terms of simplicity, and balance of speed and security.

Unlike other similar apps with bells and whistles, we properly put security and privacy first:
 - Encryption: Other apps store photos as they are behind a password screen. We automatically do full encryption making it practically impossible to hack your photos.
 - Network access is only used for retrieving ads.
 - Panic Lock on every screen.

Album (or Folder) Management:
- Nested Albums
- Multi Import Album/Picture from your Picture Hub
- Multi Export to Saved Images of your Picture Hub
- Multi Album/Picture Delete and Move
- Album names are optional
- Lock/Hide (i.e. Encrypt/Decrypt) root albums
- Fast and responsive navigation

Image Gallery Viewer:
- Flick to navigate photos
- Fastest Pinch to Zoom
- Slideshow

Typical uses:
- Safety: Keep your sensitive photos safe from your children.
- Privacy: like when faced with someone asking to borrow your phone.
- Secrecy: Keep a stash of your top secret photos.
- Convenience: Keep a scanned copy of your classified documents.

    I cant even get into without uninstalling it and then reinstalling it but then I would lose everything in it.

    Just installed the app, set a password and it gave me an "vault" error... And looking through the reviews other people have had this issue too and have lost their pics... Better alternatives are: Private snaps, photo lock or even metro file manager...

    This app is pretty good, but it would be better if the slideshow button actually worked.

    MAKERS PLEASE READ! Wonderful app, great security, full version is genius. Could you make the exact same thing but for music? That would be amazing! The exact same tool that somehow unlocks a music player? Thanks.
