About this app

Private Photo Vault® is a photo safe that keeps all of your private pictures and videos hidden behind a password.

The #1 iOS Private Photo App is now available on Android!

Have any photos or videos you don't want someone to see? Hide these private pics and vids securely with Photo Vault®.

Private Photo Vault® keeps your photos and videos safe by requiring a password to view them. Private Photo Vault® allows you to password protect the entire app as well as individual photo albums (double layer password security). Creating your own personal photo locker. All your secret images and videos that are protected with the app are then hidden from view of potential intruders.

Locking your private photos and videos is easy with Private Photo Vault:
1) Setup account and create new pin
2) Go into the first photo album already created for you
3) Hit the plus button to hide pics. These photos will be removed from you gallery and locked into Private Photo Vault.
4) Now you have a private photo gallery that only you can view.

✔ Password Protected App Entry
✔ Pin Lock
✔ Password Protected Photo Albums
(Keep people out of your private albums)
✔ Break-in Report: Photo + GPS
    Private Photo Vault's break-in report will secretly take a photo and record the device's current GPS location whenever a wrong password is entered for the app. This will allow you to see anyone who may be snooping on your personal pics.
✔ Decoy Password
    Sometimes a nosy person will beg you to see what photos you have in Private Photo Vault. In this situation, you can give them your decoy password that opens up to an entirely different set of photos. This will then make them lose their curiosity about what is in the app while your private pics are still in there in your normal vault account.

✔ Create Secret Photo Albums right in the App

✔ Custom Album Covers to keep safe the contents of your private album

Q: Can I export my photos after hiding them with the app?
A: Of course, by hitting the export button, any picture you have locked in the app will be returned to where you originally imported it from.
Q: Is there a limit on the number of photos I can have in the app?
A: Nope :) Private Photo Vault allows password protecting as many private pictures and videos as you have, so long as you still have free space on your device.
Q: Who can see my photos?
A: To give you more privacy, your photos are securely stored on your device and not uploaded to our servers.

Update: After a little back and forth to find the exact issue, the developers built an update to fix the problem. Bugs happen but this level of customer service rarely does. 👍👍 Original: If you don't plan to use the cloud save, consider this five stars. But every time it tries to retrieve the photos I had it gives me a "data/logic error while attempting to synchronize". I lost a lot of photos. I'd have deleted the app out of reasonable bitterness if I wasn't still holding out hope it'll work.

This app is fantastic and super easy to use! Even the free version is incredibly helpful. In the free version there's 3 albums available and all you have to do is look at a mini ad. Adding any photos to the vault gives you the option to delete it from your phones album and keep it there, but revert if needed. The payed version is fantastic, it's multiple albums with the ability to recall if you delete something. **Saving gifs doesn't work anymore(the gif itself was corrupted, Sorry about that!)

Back when I had an iPhone, this was the best Private photo app, and after switching to an Android, I was excited to see that it was also on the play store. However, this app is nothing like the iOS version. Some features like shake to go to the bottom or nonexistant, and the ads wouldn't be so bad if they didn't crash the app half of the time. I would love to give this app 5 stars, but I can't bring myself to do that with these obvious issues.
