For those of you that may not know what we do at Baloota, we really wanted to take the time to tell you everything you need to know about some of the best apps available for Android utility users.
A photo vault is a mobile photo & video security app that hides & protects most of the media stored on your smartphone or tablet. In the online world where it is becoming more and more uncertain on how your content is being used and knowing who has or could possibly have access to your content along with so many unknown illegal online activities that could potentially pose a threat to your security every day, it’s important to have a safeguard for your most precious memories and personal content.
By locking your photos, videos and files in a secure vault which is backed by end-to-end encryption and passcodes, you could mitigate the risk of your smartphone being hacked.
Photos vaults aren’t just for these of us that is all too aware of the risks associated with being active line. Photo vaults also act as an additional layer of personal privacy for those of us who tend to let others use their devices. This can span from minors to work colleagues.
The traditional use of a photo vault is to hide private or sensitive photos or videos so it’s not able to be found in your main photo gallery on your phone.
However, the benefits of using a photo vault go farther than just hiding photos. We wanted to add that photo vaults can be used to protect files.
