How to Lock Photos and Videos on an Android Smartphone Using Photo and Video Locker
There are hundreds of photo locking applications available on Play store. The truth is, not every such app is worth a download. Some applications do nothing more than hiding pictures from gallery. In literal meaning, it is not locking and it does not offer any sort of security or privacy. On the other hand, there are apps like Photo and Video Locker, which offers easy and fast encryption to your personal photos and videos. This app can really keep your dear captured moments safe and away from prying eyes. It has multiple of handy security features; below I am discussing some of the useful ones.
If you want to fetch out the images or videos you took on your friend's birthday, spouse's birthday on any other special day, you can easily get them as you can see all the pictures or videos categorized with respect to date, month or year.
Different import options
The app gives you the freedom to import desired pictures and videos from the phone's gallery. Moreover, you can click images or shoot videos from the secure interface of the application. Plus, there is a built-in secure browser in the app, if you download photos or videos using it, the downloaded items itself will be safeguarded by the app.
You can create personalized albums for valuable pictures and videos. The app lets you manage them and keep them in different albums with respect to the different categories you have formed. For instance, you can keep all your picnic photos in an album, selfies in another and so on.
If you want to keep your photos and videos with you forever, you need to create their backup. Photo and Video Locker helps you backup all your encrypted photos on the cloud, which means there is negligible chance of losing your precious files.
Three types of login credentials
If you are fond of keeping your passcode, a password, then you can set up a complex password to access your confidential photos and videos. In the same fashion, if you like to use PIN or pattern as your login credential, you can opt for them as well. The app allows you to set up a password, a PIN or a pattern to access your confidential data, which means you have the privacy with comfort.
Other handy security options
The app has other security options as well. Photo Locker comes up with Panic Switch that helps fool the shoulder snoopers with just a shake, flick or just by placing the palm of your hand on the screen. Other than that, there is Hack Attempt Monitoring that allows you to identify the person that tried to access your photos or videos behind your back. Another option is Stealth Mode, it hides the app icon, and thus, no one knows that you are using an app to protect your memories. Plus, Decoy Mode helps you set up a fake log in which you can hand over to someone when you have no other choice but to reveal the passcode.
I personally have loved the functionality of this application. If you are concerned about the privacy of your photos or videos, this can be your go to app.
