Lock Photo+Video Vault lets you lock up or hide your personal photos, videos, messages, and more.

Pros

Quick setup: Launch Lock Photo+Video Vault and click My Disk, and you land on a Category/User page. Click the Administrator icon and set a password. You then go to an Administrator page with four folders: Picture, Video, Audio, and File. Choose one and click the + button on the top right menu bar to create a folder. In your folder, click the + sign on the bottom right menu bar to add files. You can also shoot new photos or videos directly from the app to add to the appropriate folders.

Secure: Your password is required every time you click into the Lock Photo+Video Vault, or after you've been dormant for a while, which boosted our confidence that our files would remain private. The dot password option is great for users who'd rather not use a numerical one. You can also create and manage multiple user accounts, including decoy accounts to throw off snoopers.

Plenty of folder options: You can create, search, sort, copy and paste, export, share, and hide folders, subfolders, and individual files in multiple ways. You can also sync these to your computer (via USB) or to iCloud by pressing the Wi-Fi button on the bottom menu bar. Press Stop on your phone, which appears when you're paired to your computer, to immediately stop syncing.

Slideshows: Turn your photos into dynamic slideshows by adding cool transitional elements and background music from your iTunes collection.

Tips: Helpful tips pop up when you're completing more complicated tasks.

Cons

Too many ads: The ads in the free version -- both pop-up and along the bottom menu bar -- are very distracting. Because of their confusing placement, it's frequently difficult to differentiate between ads and menu bars.

Limited free features: The free version has a storage limit of 24 items in Picture and 4 items in Video, Audio, and File.

Dated UI and navigation: The UI is not very modern looking, and swiping gestures play no role in the app. You must click the back and forward buttons to navigate from page to page.

Bottom Line

Lock Photo+Video Vault is a great way to lock your personal files away from prying eyes. While the free version works well enough, the incessant ads and file-storage limits made us want to go premium.
