Although taking photos has become a routine of our daily life, we do not take every photo to share. Some photos are private and should not be seen by anyone other than us or those we allow. In this list, we’ve brought together the best apps to hide photos and videos that you can use for the photos and videos you want to keep to yourself.
Private Photo Vault by Keepsafe
Private Photo Vault, Keepsafe’s app with over 50 million downloads, lets you protect your photos by locking them down with PIN protection, fingerprint authentication, and military-grade encryption. You can organize your important documents such as driver’s license and ID card in the app where you can get back-ups of your photos.
The app is free but in the paid version of the app, you can store up to 10,000 files, lock certain albums with a password, and recover accidentally deleted photos.
Gallery Vault, one of the best apps to hide photos and videos, offers quite exciting features. In the app, which allows you to hide even its own app icon, you can assign a fake passcode and show fake content to users who enter with that password. If you need to close the app quickly in Gallery Vault, which has no storage limit, just shake the phone.
Vault, which you can also use as an app lock app, is very popular with its features such as folder management and space encryption. In the app, your newly taken photos can be directly encrypted instead of being displayed in the gallery. The app also has a private cloud space.
