Vault-Hide SMS, Pics & Videos is an amazing security tool that provides you with the ability to hide a large array of content safely on your device. The easy to understand design and awesome features make Vault-Hide SMS one of the best programs for securing your content.


Great tools: We were really surprised by this application's abilities. Like similar programs, Vault-Hide SMS, Pics & Videos successfully converts video and images into secure files and locks them with your custom password; however, unlike some of its competitors, this program can also hide Facebook messages, contacts, and more.

Perfect execution: Our secured content, such as locked applications and text messages, could not be viewed on our device without entering our passcode, and even when connected to our computer, our device did not display anything but text when we tried accessing locked files.

Beautiful design: Vault-Hide SMS hosts an attractive design that eases using this program because of the large icons that clearly denote its various subsections. We noted that the included photo and video galleries are well organized and display media in their original format.


Lost content: A few of the files that we secured with Vault-Hide SMS could not be retrieved during our tests, which may be due to user error. Another risk related to using this program is forgetting your passcode as this may permanently inhibit you from accessing locked content because your passcode cannot be retrieved.

Bottom Line

You should feel confident using Vault-Hide SMS, Pics & Videos because of its sweeping abilities and excellent processing power. We suggest that this program securely back up user passwords, in a similar manner as Hide Pictures/App Lock - Vault, to prevent content loss. Anyone with private content on their device will benefit from using Vault-Hide SMS, Pics & Videos.

Advanced Features

> Multiple Vault & Fake Vault

Create multiple vaults with different passwords for storing photos, videos or private contacts respectively. And one of them can be a fake vault.

> Stealth Mode

Make Vault icon disappear from your home screen and it can only be found again with the correct password, so no one knows it exists.

> Break-in Alerts

Secretly snaps a picture of any one who attempts to access with a wrong password. Vault captures a photo, the time stamp and PIN code entered by all intruders.


> Q&A:

1. What if I forgot my password?

If you have a security Email set up before, you should be able to see a "Forgot Password" en-trance once you input the wrong password. Tap on the entrance and follow the instructions to reset your password.

If you do not have a security Email but you had backed up your data to cloud space, then the data can be recovered from the cloud by reinstalling Vault app.

2. How do I enter vault in stealth mode

In stealth mode, you can enter Vault by opening the phone's dial pad, inputting "##your Vault password" (for example, input ##123 if your password is "123" ), then clicking Send (or Call) button.

If Vault is currently not running in the background (when it has been force stopped by Android system or another app), ##Password will not work. Now you can:

1. Put Vault back to the phone's home screen by adding Vault widget, once it appears on home screen, tap on it, and then input your password to enter, or,

2. Download "NQ calculator" in Google Play, open it, and input correct password then tap "=".

3. Why are my photos/videos lost?

Some cleaning or free storage apps may automatically delete Vault's data folder used to store pictures and videos. So, as a best practice, please do not choose to delete Vault's data folder and subfolders (mnt/sdcard/SystemAndroid) when you use such apps.

You can also backup your sms, pictures and videos to cloud by using "Cloud Backup" feature in the premium page of Vault.
