I have some pics on my phone that I would like to keep to myself. Any ideas?
photosafe, it's an app.
If you want it more complicated, you could use astro or some other file manager and rename the extension of the pics so a gallery won't find them. Then rename the ext when you want to view the files.
Create folder for pics, add empty text file named:
Search forums for answers.
Thank you very much.
yeah, just make the folder have a period before it .mypics or .justforme or .xxx then all you have to do is go into a file manager and view them when you would like, they wont show up in the gallery
see thats way to obvious for me, then anyone lookin through your apps knows your hiding some pictures, snatch the astro file manager up in the marketplace and give the period in front of the folder a try, it will work
Well that made it so nothing can read it. not even astro.
Try Photovault, password protected and it's 99 cents in the marketplace. The only downer is that you have to add each picture one by one. It removes the pictures from the gallery so no one can see them.
Just open the menu in Astro and while in the app, go to more, preferences, look and feel and check or uncheck show hidden files and that will make the folder accessible. I think this ability came in with the latest Astro update. Hope this helps
Yeah, I think 95% of the following threads are of that nature:
- How do I hide contacts?
- How do I delete my search history in [market, main search, etc.]?
- How do I hide pictures?
