Keep Your Photos Safely Under Lock and Key

Picture Safe - Secure Photo Vault and Private Safe for your Privacy. is basically designed to provide you with a way of keeping your photos securely under password protection, while also remaining hidden with the use of a fake app icon, decoy passwords, and more.

There is a very cool ‘calculator’ entry screen which calls for a longer eight-digit PIN number rather than the usual four.

This alone should be more than enough to throw people off the scent, but if it isn’t then you’ll be pleased to know that you can also set up Real and Safe picture modes, each with their own unique passwords.

The Safe picture mode works in line with Snoop Stopper feature which will take any unauthorized user to the ‘safe’ area which shows generic stock images like landscapes, cute animals, and so on.
