Hide Photos & Videos with the secret picture vault app

Before The Start

Regardless of the purpose, we all need a safe and secured space in our devices to hide some private photos and videos. We understand that each and every one of us has some secrets. While keeping all that in mind, we’ve created a perfect app for iPhone and iPad to seamlessly keep your secret photos and videos confidential.

So, head over to the App Store and download Photo Safe Vault – Private Pic, our most impressive photos, and videos locker yet. Once stored inside the safe lock, you don’t have to worry about your private contents anymore.

A secret photo vault app for safekeeping hidden images and videos

Even after locking your device with Touch ID or Face ID, you might get concerned about unwanted people gaining access and discovering your personal photos. iPhone’s default feature lets you hide pictures from the Photos app’s main screen, but it’s not foolproof. Since your hidden images can still be accessed from a different tab, it makes hiding photos pointless.

Fortunately, Photo Safe Vault is a welcoming addition. It does what iPhone’s native hiding feature can’t do. And that is hiding photos and videos safely and efficiently.

There are many reasons why someone would want to keep their photos and videos hidden. For example, it might be because they have pictures that they just don’t want to show to a certain individual. Or it might be some sort of intimate photograph. No judgment, of course; they probably have their reasons.

Now, whatever the core reason is, we all agree this is quite an essential feature to maintain our privacy. While talking about privacy, let’s not forget to mention that our app sports a fully functional private browser. The browser supports the Touch ID feature for extra security aswell.

So, let’s go through the steps and make some photos and videos private without worrying much.
