Private Photo Vault – Pic Safe
This iPhone photo vault program is one of the free apps developed by Legendory Software Labs LLC to protect your personal pictures and videos hidden from others. It has more than 276 thousand users’ reviews, with good ratings – near 5 stars. Thus it can be one of the top free Photo Vault app for iOS users.
Private Photo Vault is in a small size of 41 MB. After you download and firstly run this app, it will ask you to create a Passcode to hide files, as well as suggest you set up recovery email in case of forgetting the PIN by accident, very considerable!
The free version allows you to create 2 albums including passcode-encrypted album to store your secret files, even nudes or porn pictures, which means even some hacker got the passcode to access this app, they still cannot get photos in your passcode-protected album.
Besides passcode, Private Photo Vault also allows you to set Touch ID as an alternative to access your photo vaults.
The disadvantages of this app I found are the outdated interface design and the pop-up ads requiring you to get its pro version. However, it’s not important if all photos and videos could safely be hidden there. After all, we need more basic features, not something gaudy.
About It’s Paid Version
It has one pro version named Private Photos Vault Pro, costing $4.99, and offers you additional features like removing ads, creating unlimited albums, transferring photos wirelessly, break-in report and pattern lock, etc.
Secret Calculator – Fake Vault & Private Photo
