Used it for a while with no major problems. Really good. Only thing is that it sometimes lags to show the password slot when I open it. Also, constant notifications "you haven't used File Locker in a while", even though I used it just yesterday to hide stuff from my friends and family. Deserves 4 stars for these minor issues. Will continue using.

I like the idea but once I've selected a file or two I can't move them into the vault. Tapping the so called Move Out button simply locks me out of the app once again, even though I'm sure I'm following the online instructions correctly.

Good app, but it sucks when you can't move the photos out of the app after transferring them there. The share arrow is also not helping because nothing happens when you press it.
