One of the most popular apps of the genre is Vaulty. Vaulty is designed to hide photos and videos exclusively. But that’s what we, average users, need, right?
Vaulty allows you to hide selected files and view them from within the app. The files are protected by a PIN or text password. You can classify them in the most convenient way because of the opportunity to create multiple folders inside, which can also be protected by individual passwords.
If someone tries to access your hidden files and does so by entering the wrong PIN or password, the app will create an unwanted intruder selfie to let you know who is trying to invade your privacy.
Another excellent feature of this app is the free online backup. Nothing is protected from losing your phone or its damage. In such situations, we all wish we had backed up our photos and videos. Vault gives you such an opportunity, so it’s better to use it – beware is the mother of security!
So what do we get? Simple application with the ability to hide media files. Download now and make sure your files are protected!
KeepSafe is another app for hiding photos, videos and files. This application is considered the most secure, however we doubt that other applications are less secure than this, so let’s be objective and mark its true advantages.

Second, the gallery where photos are replaced or copied is full of useful features. The most outstanding are rotate, zoom and slideshow. Meaning, basically you can use this app as the only gallery and nobody will know that you have any media files at all. The convenience of viewing files is a second plus.
Third, this application allows you to sync and back up your photos, videos or files. This is a great option, but also provided by other apps.
However, the real advantage is the simple, amazing design. The clear interface makes this app one of the best. There’s also a premium plan, which includes features like changing album art, fake PIN, additional passwords, break-in alerts and so on. You can find some of them totally free in other apps.
Then what do we have? A safe and beautiful application, which is suitable for users who like simplicity and do not need extra features. This app has everything you need to keep your files protected. Download now and see how it works!
3. Hide it Pro
Hide it The Pro icon in no way resembles the icon that a vaulter would normally use. On the contrary, it looks like an audio manager and is actually an audio manager, which allows you to change the volume settings. Only when you long press the icon will it open the password / PIN window, which will then lead to the hidden gallery. Amazing, right?
The gallery itself is quite comfortable to use. It has all the essential features like slideshow, video player, sharing, etc. There is no specific password for each folder, but our beloved feed password is available to mislead those who want to see your pictures.
Another advantage is the variety of files that can be stored in the app – photos, videos, apps, messages and even calls. All of these things can easily be backed up to Google Drive.

When someone asks you to show me a picture you can just enter a second password and get a good picture of someone who hides nothing!
Apart from the password decoy feature, there is also a free break-in report. People who try to hack into your secret gallery multiple times will be rewarded with a selfie and their GPS location sent to you, so you’ll know exactly who it is!

For example, not only can you protect your files with a pin, password or pattern, but you can also use face detection, which is pretty awesome. Another cool feature is that it makes the app icon invisible to others.
So, Fotox seems like a great alternative. Try this one, if you are looking for a safe backup of your photos and videos!
