Hide Pictures with KeepSafe is a free Android app that lets you set a PIN to access pictures in a secure vault. The app includes a Wallet feature, takes backups, and protects your PIN. A beta feature hides SMS messages, too. New features include SafeSend, which shares pictures for only 20 seconds; long enough for a glimpse.
Secure Wallet: Hide Pictures with KeepSafe comes with a Wallet that stores backup images of your credit cards and IDs. After three failed PIN entries, the Wallet deletes itself.
PIN safe: We could set a PIN reminder and a fake PIN, too. Enabling the Secret Door feature requires a long press on the app's logo to open it.
Camera-to-vault: We could send pictures directly from our phone's camera to Hide Pictures with KeepSafe's vault.
Gallery needs work: Hide Pictures with KeepSafe's gallery feature lacks useful features such as swiping to resize.
Stability issues: Hide Pictures with KeepSafe crashed a few times in our Samsung Galaxy SIII running Android 4.3.
Everyone knows someone who feels entitled to pick up your phone and rifle its contents. Hide Pictures with KeepSafe does a fine job of keeping snoops at bay. The app's gallery function could be more versatile, but nearly every similar app we've tried has had the same shortcomings. We're a bit concerned about stability on some devices; though we had no functional troubles with the app. Hide Pictures with KeepSafe has a lot going for it.
