Review: mySecrets stores your secret data in a secure folder on your iOS device

Create folders, store photos and text in a hidden location, and change your passwords on the fly.

mySecrets is a privacy app for the iPhone that offers protection for your photos and passwords. Its interface is not as intuitive as some other privacy apps but once you get the hang of it, there is quite a bit you can do. It's just a matter of determining how you want to organize your information as you store it to the app.

When you open mySecrets for the first time, you'll need to choose a master password. Unlike some other privacy apps, you need to choose a password and not just a pin. Of course you can choose a password of four numbers if you want, so added security is strictly optional, but we recommend you take advantage of the extra layer of protection with a longer password. After setting log-in options, you can create folders, import or take new photos, add passwords, or set other options in the app that will allow you to change the way your information is stored. With a built-in search tool and the option to save and store things like passwords to the app as well as images, there is more flexibility in mySecrets than in some other privacy apps.

mySecrets is a solid privacy app that works quickly, doesn't throw too many menus at you, and offers enough flexibility to customize it to your specific needs. The interface is at times more complex than it needs to be; but with so many options to choose from and a great search tool, it's a very effective free tool.
