Maintain your dignity with these seven featured apps that keep your all private stuff safe inside your iPhone.
- Private Photo Vault
This app is available for iOS devices and allows you to import photos inside the albums that will be accessible by entering the correct PIN lock code. Besides this lock protection, there are other two features supported by Private Photo Vault- break in report and decoy password.

2. Gallery Lock lite
It is different from other applications, Gallery Lock Lite allows you put the app icon invisible or at Stealth mode that makes it disappear on your smartphone. When you enable this feature, you can access the app while typing your password in an asterisk, and pressing ‘call.’ Just like Private Photo vault, this app also catches a photo of the person with front face camera but only when he failed thrice times to attempt password.
