The GalleryVault app is a free tool that allows you to hide selected gallery content on your Android device. The app enables you to keep your photos, videos and any other files private in a secret virtual vault by encrypting them. Encryption keeps pictures from unauthorised viewing and protects your privacy.
You can download the GV app for free, with support for many languages. There are several alternative apps available on the market such as KeepSafe Photo Vault, 1Gallery, Vault, and LockMyPix Photo Vault.
Why do you need a vault?
Android devices are brimming with files and images that contain information we want to keep private. Devices can be hacked, and at times you can accidentally show someone a photo or video that you didn't intend to. Or even worse, you send a risky video by mistake. All of these mistakes can be avoided by keeping your confidential media separate and hidden.
The app creates a virtual vault where you can store photos, videos, gif images and general multimedia in as many folders as you need. You can keep the vault on your micro SD card and access your vault from your device at any time. You can even hide the icon of the app to prevent others from knowing it’s in use.
The GV app utilises smart security features that enable you to create authentic and fake passwords. When an unauthorised person enters a phoney password, they’ll still be able to access the app, but only see the photos you selected for viewing. Break-in alerts for data breaches and fingerprint unlocking are also options.
This privacy protecting app for Android features an intuitive interface with streamlined file management and unlimited storage space. It integrates with private web browsers, allowing for quick, private downloading of media files with the GalleryVault web browser version. You experience simple media browsing while using this app.
The free version of GalleryVault contains adverts and is more suited as a trial before you purchase the premium version. The premium version is rated as one of the top apps in its class but is considered expensive.
