F**k Google for not implementing a lock feature in Google Photos, archiving isn't the same as locking media. This app, if I'm not mistaken, should let you use any photo app because it requires you to lock your device or pin the app which is the next best thing to locking them straight from Google Photos. Thank you developer(s)
Great app, love the concept... Has one small flaw... If the user is using smart Lock like I am and one of the conditions is met (e.g. at home) then the lockscreen isn't really stopping anyone... So please have the app lockdown the lockscreen before showing the photos
Good idea and well implemented for the limitations in place with OS. As other reviews said, it won't override any features that keeps your device unlocked, such as Trusted Devices, etc. But it does create a limited experience of just the media I meant to share, and at least requires exiting that experience and swiping up to open my phone for real, which is an acceptable and welcome barrier vs none at all, albeit easy to overcome.
I have been waiting for this app! I want to show people pics of my son without them accidentally seeing pics of his birth. My thanks to the developer! :)
I hate to give 2 stars but I do have a lock on my but seems the app is not working. Yes i have a lock screen and yes I have uninstall and reinstall the app. I tap the picture, then share, then tap the app after I tap the app the nxt menu states to lock the device or pin this app then TAP HERE.( With a wide gap) Tap where? The only thing in the bottom is view. Pls help.
Just heard from XDA and installed it from play store. It's an awesome app. The dev whose idea behind it, is a genius. Thanks for this app. ✌️✌️✌️✌️😀
**PLEASE READ HOW TO USE**
1) Make sure that you have some kind of lock screen. Pin, Password, Fingerprint, whatever
2) Go to your gallery, select some photos or videos and tap share.
3) Select the Secure Photo Viewer
And you are done! As soon as you press your lock button, the photos will pop up. Your friends won't be able to get into your phone until you unlock it again.
