It's no joke You really can't unhide, so put that in mind and everything is okay. Though I'd give you 5 stars if you fixed it. It is important. Edit: you actually can unhide, just not by pressing the unhide button. If you go to : data/ (not the Android/data, just data,I found it in the SD card, but IDK about you.) So Storage (whatever it is)/ data/.gallery lock/protected. The files will be .glk, rename and write .jpg or whatever the file was originally. Now the one big problem is fixed.
What happened? This was a decent app at one time. I can still use it and did back everything up within it, but it has ads that pop up when I first try to open it and enter a folder (definitely not clicking near the ads). 3 or 4 attempts later I get in with the occasional pop-up. If it was guaranteed to not have these issues in the paid version I would support you.
I need help ASAP!! My phone decided it wanted to update for a few days. When it was done updating, gallery lock was uninstalled. So I reinstalled it back and ALL of my 300+ IMPORTANT pictures were gone. And I even tried resigning into my google accounts in the app to see if the pictures were backed up, and they weren't. So I need someone who is great at technology or someone from this app to help me restore my pictures because none of the ones from this app are resaved on the app or my phone, I need them. Please & thanks!
WAS Pretty good Hides what I need. But it keeps trying to make me go to their website and say something about an iPhone. As soon as I open the app for the first 30 seconds or so it keeps trying to open up a website. No matter how many times I close it it just keeps popping back up. S6. 10/9/15 12/15/15 I noticed now if you don't completely back all the way out to the front page the app can be reopened without the password.
Doesn't encrypt files, not really protecting photos This app doesn't encrypt your hidden files, anyone can find them in the system files. If you want to (I believe you need root for this), navigate to the internal storage(storage\emulated\0), then data\.GalleryLock\protected and you can see .glk files with your photos' names. Copy these to another location and change the extension to .jpg and now you can see your photos again. This app will prevent people from blatantly seeing your hidden photos in your gallery but offers no real protection.
Great app but improve ad placement I love this app! It's so easy to move photos from your gallery to the secure app. And the feature to have the app icon not even show up on your screen is an extra layer of privacy. My only complaint is that oftentimes the ads obscure part of the images.
