Make Vault icon disappear from your home screen and it can only be found again with the correct password, so no one knows it exists.

Break-in Alerts
Secretly snaps a picture of any one who attempts to access with a wrong password. Vault captures a photo, the time stamp and PIN code entered by all intruders.



1. What if I forgot my password?

If you have a security Email set up before, you should be able to see a "Forgot Password" en-trance once you input the wrong password. Tap on the entrance and follow the instructions to reset your password.

If you do not have a security Email but you had backed up your data to cloud space, then the data can be recovered from the cloud by reinstalling Vault app.

2. How do I enter vault in stealth mode?

1. Put Vault back to the phone’s home screen by adding Vault widget, once it appears on home screen, tap on it, and then input your password to enter, or,

2. Download "NQ calculator" in Google Play, open it, and input correct password then tap "=".

3. Why are my photos/videos lost?

Some cleaning or free storage apps may automatically delete Vault’s data folder used to store pictures and videos. So, as a best practice, please do not choose to delete Vault’s data folder and subfolders (mnt/sdcard/SystemAndroid) when you use such apps.

You can also backup your pictures and videos to cloud by using "Cloud Backup" feature in the premium page of Vault.

This was my go to app until they forced a feature where I would swipe from one of the bottom corners that had shortcuts for quick settings and was forced to show ads. So there was an ad no matter where I was, home screen, settings, any app. I couldn't find an option to turn it off in the vault settings. I hope you guys stop trying to expand on where you are not needed. I downloaded this for a secure media vault, nothing else.

Conceptually, this should be a good app, but it doesn't live up to billing. 1st, contacts imported into the app 1st have to be contacts on the phone. (U can create a new contact within the app itself.) This makes no sense for a contact that's going to be hidden. 2ndly, Once a contact is in the app, u can't alter the name. Lastly, & probably the strongest reason for not purchasing this app: poor customer service. After an update the developer pushed, I LOST ALL MY CONTACTS & information on them (including all the texts exchanged w/ that contact, the times we called one another, & all the notes on that contact [think birthdays and such]). The weird thing about this data loss is that it only affected my contacts. My hidden photos & videos remained in tact. But the volume of important data lost is unimaginable. Some of these contacts (& text messages went back years). I reached out for the developer by email twice, but never got a response. I'd hoped that since I'd once been a premium member that my data might somehow be retrieved, but I hadn't kept premium because most features weren't used. You should probably buy another product!

The ability to create folders for video would be great, being able to move files from one folder to another without exporting them would be great. And honestly if it was a flat price not monthly I'd buy the premium, asking for a monthly fee for something like this is just a poor choice for business in my opinion. Just make it 10 or 20 bucks and bee done with it.
