Great but misses one function
by SJPHD on 2020/07/22 00:17
I love this app. But, to my chagrin, I discovered that if a user accidentally deletes an image, it is gone forever. In most apps, there is a guard against any such mishaps by using a Trash folder and allowing users to “undelete” images. The software developers need to consider adding this feature. Till then, there is a weakness in this app.
Emailed support and no response
by AndreB.201 on 2020/07/20 11:39
Use at your own risk. I uploaded all of my pictures to the picture vault pro because I was trying to save space. My phone was stolen at the park. I brought a new one re-downloaded the app and can not recover my pics. I emailed the support team twice two weeks ago and have not received a response yet

App Keeps Crashing.
by TwoShoeBenLouLou on 2020/07/07 09:22
Just bought this app for $6.99, the price before was $3.99?! Anyway, read great reviews on it, so got it. But having a bad experience with it! Trying to import photos into the app... it keeps crashing!!! Then crashes my phone!! This app, is not worth it at all.
Transfer between apps.
by JBULLITT on 2020/07/04 17:48
I have private photo vault pro on my iPad. I have saved hundreds of photos. I also have downloaded the app on my iPhone. Why isn’t there away they can transfer between iPad and iPhone?
Share between devices
by mills0325 on 2020/07/04 13:17
Will this automatically share between my iPhone and iPad? So far I can’t see how to do it.
Great app Feature Request
by Lancebuzz on 2020/06/27 01:48
I love this app. So many features and privacy settings. I have a feature request. It would be nice to have a feature that would delete photos and videos in a certain time, if the user has not checked back in at that specified time. I would love this feature added. Please add!!!!!!!
No Responce
by Wdoqabel on 2020/06/08 18:32
I have used photo Vault for a few years now and have used this program to show my clients the pictures I have taken as a photographer. Of course I have other backups of my photos, but, one day I clicked on the program and all my pictures and albums were wiped out for some reason. The very disappointing part is that I wrote there customer support team over five weeks ago and they never did respond to me as to what may have caused this to happen. I feel they only care about taking my money and being a customer is no concern to them.

by FilipinoBoy37 on 2020/05/28 12:20
Pro version I see no difference between the lite version except no ads and maybe the decoy version ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I forgot how it was before. Easy to import and it deletes the photos you needa “save”. All in all I give a 10/10. Very reliable app

Great but lacks some minor details
by Soroush.khaleghi on 2020/05/08 21:52
I’ve been using this app (pro version) for so many years and its really great,simple to use and fun. But one thing that is bothering me a little is that every app icon has changed since iOS 6 till today but this app! and it kinda show its age... (remember this app can be used to hide personal stuff but now with the first glance anyone can see it because of its looks). And one suggestion : please design more than one app icon for your users to choose from (like for example the Telegram App), support for Dark mode and an ability for decoy login to use Touch ID & Face ID (so we could enter passcode for the original Stuff OR use Touch ID & Face ID for decoy Account. Make a setting section with less access for Decoy so it Looks more Real. Long story short; the App is great but it’s time for some changes Fellas.

Doesn’t Transfer Pics To New Phone
by JRT Reviewer on 2020/04/12 14:12
I have been using this for years and loved it until recently. Now not feeling the same. The Pro version did not transfer pics & videos to my new iPhone 11. The free version transferred without issues. So now I am stuck with the daunting task importing pics to my camera roll on old phone, moving to new location in the cloud and/or computer then moving pics back into Photo Vault Pro. Also I could not find a way to contact customer service. Very disappointed & extremely frustrated.
Great app!

by Wretched Hyena on 2020/03/23 15:29
Easy photo upload. Good editing. My only complaints are that it sometimes changes the order of photos after I’ve arranged them in the order I want, and a minor problem that some of the thumbnails go white temporarily. I had another app before that crashed on uploading. This one seems quite stable.

Works well. Hides stuff Update: twice over the last year I've logged in and all of my pictures are gone. Now they are hidden so well I'll never find them. This used to be a great all but losing all my pictures blows. Fortunately I used Darkbox as a backup and not one picture has ended up missing.

Thanks so much!
by Olai Black on 2020/01/13 13:36
I bought this app a few years ago, and I just wanted to say thank you for continuing to support it so actively. The one time I had an issue with a new version of iOS, your support team was excellent, and it was resolved quickly with no data lost. The app has always been top-notch, and works perfectly now with iOS13. Many thanks for your time and effort.
Works great.

by MercWithAMouth187 on 2019/12/08 11:26
Great app, however allow creation of folders via WiFi or allow the upload of entire folders via WiFi, in doing so you would make the app even more useable especially when transferring from a computer to the app and vice versa.
Great photo editor too
by Covertfreq on 2019/12/07 18:44
Whoa just realized this is also an excellent photo editor that has deeper features than your typical straight up photo editor as well as private photo storage and browser to boot. It’s a self contained safe zone.

Love it! Works as advertised. Easy to setup and use.
by Kevin Rissell on 2019/10/28 22:02
when imported (you still have to clear the ‘recently deleted’ folder in the public photos app). Allows good organization for imported photos and vids. Quick and easy.
Very limited features
by Fed Up WB User on 2019/10/26 10:11
No way to sort photos by most recently used or other useful sort orders. Videos can’t be set to slow motion or fast motion, can’t be set to loop automatically, etc. App is at least stable, does not crash, so that’s something, but would be great if they created even some modest capabilities beyond simple display.

This update has eliminated the facility to paste photos copied from web sites. I’m assigning 5 stars provisionally hoping you’ll reinstate this feature. Otherwise a smart, secure storage app.

by FF Rory on 2019/10/05 08:17
So far I’ve liked working with this app. The last one I had they stopped updating it and it stopped working and they only thing that this app don’t have that my old one did was 1. In the old one I could create sub folders within a file to organize a little more. No big deal I just have more main files now. 2. It doesn’t have a document or text area where I could copy and paste texts or even passwords in a file. Otherwise it interacts with other apps transferring pictures very well.

by Mazakdude on 2019/10/04 02:43
This app has performed exactly as advertised. It keeps data completely secure, as far as I know. I wish there was a way to change the icon for the app. Nothing screams try to snoop like a picture of a safe with a lock on it. Be nice to replace it with something like knitting tips or celebrity political views. You know something no would really care to investigate.
Still have lots of “lost” photos
by Aljasper on 2019/10/03 12:44
I just downloaded the first update in several months. I was hopeful that it would finally let me view photos that were “lost” after their last update. Unfortunately, my photos and videos still show as blank or gray squares in the app and cannot be viewed. I don’t know why they won’t fix this. Based on other reviews from the past few months, I’m far from the only person who experienced this problem. Stay away from this app!

Destroyed more than half my library
by throwaway99887766 on 2019/10/01 19:26
I used Photo Vault Pro to store videos I shoot for my work. At some point, about half of them — more than 200 videos – became grayed out with no thumbnail image. When I try to play them, I get spinning gears but the vid never plays. I’ve waited over a year for an update to fix the problem and I’ve gotten no response to my emails to customer service. Do not use this app unless you don’t mind losing your photos.
Upgraded to pro and lost all my files
by Golucky93060 on 2019/10/01 15:22
I upgraded to pro because I was annoyed by the pop up ads. I ended up with two icons for the app, I deleted the non-pro one and my stuff disappeared.
Security
by Bigdave10384 on 2019/10/01 12:28
I’ve used these for years and always felt that private documents and pictures of most significance are absolutely secure. It is a comfortable feeling.
Recommendation
by Duva2223 on 2019/09/29 23:22
I like this app very much, but I would love to have the capability to copy and paste within a photo file, meaning be able to paste pics for organizational purposes instead of having to hold and drag them to where I want them. Once your files have thousands of pics per file like mine do, it takes forever to drag a pic to where you would like to place it within a file.

New phone, auto-updates everything. This is the only app that gave me problems. White tile or wavy gray placeholder. I’ll update a few more times over the next few months hoping they fix it. Then, I’ll delete the app and tell everyone I meet in my medical practice, kayak club, travel group, and social circle not to use.

Great app! UX needs improvement.
by Clark Battle on 2019/05/07 18:53
Ive been using this app (pro version) for many years now and its never lost a pic. The photo editor is amazing! Sometimes ill even import a photo just to edit it and then export it because the editor is so much more capable than the stock iOS photo editor. I use this app every day. It's persisted photos over bricked phones with no worries. Rock solid. My only complaint is that it requires way too many button clicks to do most things. For example, to import a photo from you library it requires nine button clicks! The worst it the three dialogs that must be dismissed after every import. Two of them could easily be removed. The experienced user doesn’t need to read those warnings every single time. Editing a photo also requires way too many clicks. Taking a photo within the app is a great feature but each photo requires four clicks! It should be one. The app is stable and well coded but it smells like the software developer was also the UX Designer. If thats the case it could really use a dedicated designer. Developers think from the perspective of the technology (for example the photo library they chose). Designers think from the perspective of the user. It's a huge difference and it shows. One missing feature is nested directories. Even two levels would be enough. Another missing feature is multiple (more than two) alternate vaults. There's no reason why there should be only two.
Update review for 10.1
by Blade1984 on 2019/03/17 19:24
First off, the update did fix some of the issues. Log in is faster, however, it seems if you import an video or edit, a large chunk of your pictures and videos become placeholders and not the picture itself. I’ve lost big slices of my content and since my device backed up with the new version, I can not restore back. So I hope that the next update will restore my items. I am sorry to say that I may have to start moving what items that are left to an different platform. I’ll give the designers of this program a week or so before I do. But sadly, until then, my use of the application will have to be at a minimum.
I hate the new version of the app
by Stopaskingformydamnname! on 2019/04/06 22:33
The previous version of this app was very stable between updates and I’ve been able to add and edit large numbers of photos without problems on my Ipad ever since I bought the pro version nearly 3 years ago. Well lo and behold my Ipad somehow turned on auto update in the App Store without my express permission and installs this train wreck of an app. I am unable to move pictures around in my albums without the app crashing and not saving my changes. Also when I scroll through an album random thumbnails will turn white and I have to scroll up or down on the screen to restore the thumbnail images. Restarting my Ipad does nothing to resolve the issues and reinstalling the app is completely unreasonable due to the amount of pictures I’d have to back up somewhere and reinstall. I also am not a fan of the edit toolbar changes. It isn’t as intuitive as the last version. The crop tool in particular is very buggy and the image keeps moving around on my screen when I try to adjust what I want to crop. This is very disappointing because I used this app extensively and there aren’t really any better alternatives on the App Store. I hope someone is actually reading these reviews (although I seriously doubt it) and gets to work on repairing this “update”. Otherwise I think I’m done using this app for good.

by ScrewyLouie 47 on 2019/01/15 14:29
I had the same problem I got a new iPhone and when everything backed up from iCloud onto it my photo vault app was empty and I lost precious pictures of my grandchildren and other memories that I cannot get back. It’s sad. Now I bought this brand new iPhone and the same thing happened again my pictures are gone and all I have is a clean photo vault to start with. This app and I think I paid $1.99 for it I can’t remember is a rip off and it screwed me over on my memories that I can no longer get back to show somebody or see ever again.
I love this app
by road dog three on 2019/03/29 07:19
For years i’ve been compiling photos and videos without any categorization. This app, allows you to save, categorize, crop picture, Display as a slideshow, lock album files, export import from iPhone to computer and vice versa and much more. Once the files have been Uploaded to photo vault, one has the option of deleting them from photo album on iPhone or keeping them. Don’t waste your time on the free app of this version, it doesn’t work properly, nor allow full upload of the pictures. One problem I’ve experienced thus far, is the creation of albums. Sometimes I have to tap numerous times for the creation of the album. For four bucks, it’s money well spent.
Missing photos.
by drpkckjo on 2018/04/01 04:10
So, I bought this app yesterday after reading all the good reviews. Well today, I looked through the photos I had, and some wouldn’t show up?!? Just this picture of a wave like graphic. You can see the photo in the menus, but when you click to enlarge it, that generic graphic comes up. So thanks for that. I knew those reviews looked sketchy. Probably reviews made up by the company. Sure it’s easy to use, but is this app doesn’t keep the photos I put in it, what use is it? Pure garbage.
Bug Report
by Lux2412 on 2019/01/18 19:58
Great app does what it promises and the Import From Clipboard (aka Pasting the pic without downloading it is EXTRA useful) HOWEVER when I’m in the Gallery on my iPhone, select multiple images and try to Import them from the Share panel it tries to load them in the popup but crashes, only works for 1pic at a time. App and software is both updated to latest, tried removing and re-adding app from Share panel, rebooting my phone nothing worked. Reinstalling is not an option since there are so many pics i would have to migrate. Importing multiple photos from app works but isn’t as conveniet. Developer pls fix.
Best Photo and Video Manager
by Frequent Flyer 4321 on 2018/02/20 20:55
PVP crushes all competitors with outstanding functionality and smooth integration including excellent management of photo storage, (completely independent of Apple photo library), killer photo edit features, a good browser, and easy uploads and downloads. CONS No browser tabs which make it very difficult to use with some websites, no resume video from last location, no multiple photo select with an easy tap and swipe motion, no user assigned photo attributes such as favorites.
Great features and organization beyond camera roll
by letterb on 2017/06/02 16:57
Well worth the price. 2nd photo account is useful. Breakin reports are awesome too. This is great for all kinds of things you don't want on your normal camera roll like memes or crude things, and it's great for albums like Simpsons or your favorite show quotes, receipts or recipes, notes from class. Then your camera roll can be just an unorganized photo dump. New interface is great, lots of new useful features. I love the alarm that catches people who put in the wrong pin.
It Works!
by Knitpicker59 on 2018/02/01 19:35
I have searched for months to find a secure photo app that actually works and isn’t another of the many bait and switch apps that barely function. This app works, it is easy to use, and it perfectly uploads photos from my computer and it is easy to sync between my PC and Apple devices. The best thing is that there is a real developer behind this who is dedicated to responding to questions and continuously improving the program. Thank you so much!!!
Cannot recover password!!!
by Blanknickname152033 on 2019/06/18 01:26
I have used this app for a while. I set up a recovery email so that in the case that I forget my password I could still use the app. Well I recently forgot my password and the prompt asked me if I would like an email with my password. I said yes and went to find the email. THEY DID NOT SEND ANYTHING. I tried it again several times and still no email. They have my correct email address and it says “message sending”, but I didn’t get anything. (Yes, I checked the spam folder and all the other folders). I sent in a complaint about it and they said that they would get back to me, but I have heard nothing. I’m very frustrated, because I set up the recovery email, so why isn’t it working??
Older then an week ago Photo Vault was much better.
by rathaDWC on 2019/03/29 16:17
The Old Photo Vault got all these good reports. Your new one has no blemish controls, or and the filter are not as good as the older app. Others who feel the same way state your experiences. Maybe we all can get the Photo Vault people to offer the old one. Also why can a app company change an app without notice. When I purchase an app I should have some say if I want to upgrade. Bring back the old Photo Vault.
A good app
by FF Rory on 2019/10/05 08:17
So far I’ve liked working with this app. The last one I had they stopped updating it and it stopped working and they only thing that this app don’t have that my old one did was 1. In the old one I could create sub folders within a file to organize a little more. No big deal I just have more main files now. 2. It doesn’t have a document or text area where I could copy and paste texts or even passwords in a file. Otherwise it interacts with other apps transferring pictures very well.
It enables me to do what I've been too scared to do.
by LovinItForSure on 2017/06/15 07:07
The title of this review says it all. At first, I used the app but still didn't trust it to keep anything totally secure. Then progressed from there to trusting it more and more. On a device that we are scared to keep anything REALLY private on, this app has restored that lost value of having private material on the device we take with us everywhere we go. Should the device fall into the wrong hands, our data stays hidden. Nice.
So far so good
by Steel_tiger1 on 2017/09/24 13:17
Wonderful tool to keep those special pictures out of sight. Easy to transfer them to the app and keep them safe from prying eyes. Only wish you could text them directly from the app instead of having to move them back to your pics album. Then remember to move them again. Update: you can text pictures right straight from the app now. So it is perfect for those special pictures.
Fine vault; needs improvements
by MikeSooch on 2017/07/05 13:33
I purchased the pro version of this app to replace what I feel was the best photo vault app out there, Stash. But Stash, however, appears to have been discontinued and will be obsolete under future OS versions. This app is fine and has a clean interface, and is quite fast in wireless import, but there are a few features I'd like to see added. For one I'd like to see tabbed browsing on the included browser. Also, I'd like to see integration with Dropbox. Overall, though, I'm happy with this app.
Recommendation
by Duva2223 on 2019/09/29 23:22
I like this app very much, but I would love to have the capability to copy and paste within a photo file, meaning be able to paste pics for organizational purposes instead of having to hold and drag them to where I want them. Once your files have thousands of pics per file like mine do, it takes forever to drag a pic to where you would like to place it within a file.
Pro version doesn't work
by 10Darcy on 2017/06/07 15:25
Bought pro version doesn't have all the functions it only has basic functions says you need to upgrade when you try won't let you because you already bought pro version....need fixed. Can't say if I will like app because it is not working right to even try it. Makes me nervous to store videos on site not functioning right to begin with.
No Favoriting, Limited zoom-in, Slow w large libraries
by rspinoza on 2019/02/22 11:11
Works relatively decently, as advertised. However, limitations compared with native photos app on the iPhone: - No Favoriting. In fact, it doesn't preserve the fact that you have favored at certain photos, as you import them. - Limited Zoom-in. In the native Photos app, you can zoom in quite far on any photo. You can't zoom in as far in this app. - Takes a little bit too long, when importing from a large photo library. It takes a while just to let you start importing.
Your app has kept my evidence safe. Thank you
by Hirams Oma on 2017/11/27 09:09
I have had to keep a very ugly, messed up file hidden for some time now. Tonight once again the meth has taken him over. I have sent the file to several people and hope I don't get in trouble for sending such messed up stuff. If something should happen and the threats keep coming your app made it possible to find who is responsible.
Angry, Mad, and Furious
by annpyed longtime user on 2019/04/06 07:21
Days have passed and new versions have been released. But the most serious problem—turning existing files into unreadable empty files—has not been solved; nor has the development team released any statement regarding the glitches and warned customers against updating until the problem is solved. As a Pro user I am very disappointed at the team and this App. I felt my support in the last few years has been tossed into water like nothing... For those interested in purchasing the Pro version especially, please refrain from doing so until they solve the problem, if ever. For those Pro users, DO NOT UPDATE at all!
Amazing but needs alittle something
by Hammerkirby101 on 2017/07/05 15:11
I love this app I use it all the time and because of that I have ALOT of folders. I wish you could add a feature that allows you to put your folders into categories, like I have family folders dog folders and cat folders you would be able to put all the dog folders in 1 big folder and it still would have your smaller folders
No Responce
by Wdoqabel on 2020/06/08 18:32
I have used photo Vault for a few years now and have used this program to show my clients the pictures I have taken as a photographer. Of course I have other backups of my photos, but, one day I clicked on the program and all my pictures and albums were wiped out for some reason. The very disappointing part is that I wrote there customer support team over five weeks ago and they never did respond to me as to what may have caused this to happen. I feel they only care about taking my money and being a customer is no concern to them.
Works as described, no problems
by maliVuk on 2017/06/03 19:57
The fact that it is currently being supported is the most important feature for me. I had to transfer an archive of videos and photos from another app which is no longer supported and which Apple warns will not work after the next major iOS upgrade. Other than that, it has worked flawlessly.
Gifs are very laggy!! PLEASE FIX.
by ldj55 on 2019/05/12 20:56
When I first downloaded this app a couple of months ago, large gifs could be imported to this app withought any problem, and they ran at 25 frames per second, but I believe after the recent update, all the gifs in my albums have d to run very slow, as if they were missing frames. This wasn’t a problem before, as I could have gifs as large as 50mbs and they still ran smoothly. I would reeeally like for this to be fixed, especially since I payed for this app. Thanks.
I love this app
by Wolfgirl on 2018/08/20 19:23
Do you guys support iCloud too? I don't wanna lose my pictures if something happens to my iPhone or I'm getting a new upgrade. Also, can you guys make the folders have folders within the folders too please? Ya know for example. If I make a rainbow folder and within it I make folders for separate colors like red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Yeah like that. Can you guys make that happen please? Thx!
Thanks so much!
by Olai Black on 2020/01/13 13:36
I bought this app a few years ago, and I just wanted to say thank you for continuing to support it so actively. The one time I had an issue with a new version of iOS, your support team was excellent, and it was resolved quickly with no data lost. The app has always been top-notch, and works perfectly now with iOS13. Many thanks for your time and effort.
Update Worked
by Mpm185 on 2019/03/13 22:33
I recently wrote a slightly negative review of this app due to a recent upgrade. The upgrade on my phone and ipad caused the app to crash immediately. I contacted support who responded within 24 hours and within 3 days a new update was released. App now works perfectly. Have used this app for two years and am very satisfied. Thanks for the update and awesome customer support 👍
Great till last update
by ryangooddj on 2019/03/22 19:44
Love the app and have used it for a long time, though with the recent update I can’t transfer videos from iTunes and drop into the main file like I’ve always been able to do. Maybe because I’m on iPhone 6? Either way it’s been a solid app for years so maybe I’ll find a solution to my issue.
This version has an issue
by jordan.mel on 2018/04/10 15:39
Love this app, but big problem this issue: When a video repeats automatically, the heads-up display of sorts pops back up every time. Each time a video restarts automatically, the menu with X, volume, play/pause, and go forward/back 15 seconds appears. It is extremely annoying. Please fix in next update!
Worked Great, Now Defective
by brucegz on 2019/03/21 13:10
This WAS a great app. Then a week ago, all of my pix in 2 folders disappeared. The app shows that they are there but they’re invisible. That’s on my iPad. On my phone, pix just started disappearing. Also, the wireless import doesn’t work at all. Turns off the wireless when connecting and zaps off the app. Hope they get this app fixed. Went from a hero to a zero in 1 week after their last stable update.
Perfect.....so far
by Mazakdude on 2019/10/04 02:43
This app has performed exactly as advertised. It keeps data completely secure, as far as I know. I wish there was a way to change the icon for the app. Nothing screams try to snoop like a picture of a safe with a lock on it. Be nice to replace it with something like knitting tips or celebrity political views. You know something no would really care to investigate.
Reliable and secure
by Anon2568 on 2019/04/03 08:29
I have been using this app to store stuff for several years now. Everything still works fine after all this time and it’s not hard to transfer data to another apple device. The built in web browser also adds a nice layer of privacy and convenience. Thank you developers.
Mostly excellent
by Timstal on 2017/09/20 19:26
All this app needs is a better way to reorganize pictures in an album. Currently the only option is to drag images one at a time. This is very unsatisfactory when an album has hundreds of pictures, or when you want to move several pictures together.
Great app Feature Request
by Lancebuzz on 2020/06/27 01:48
I love this app. So many features and privacy settings. I have a feature request. It would be nice to have a feature that would delete photos and videos in a certain time, if the user has not checked back in at that specified time. I would love this feature added. Please add!!!!!!!
latest update crashes, bricks ipad BROKEN UPDATE!
by Miguel Luna on 2019/03/13 21:53
this is unusable. stalls when attempting to load a video and essentially bricks the ipad. I keep having to reboot the ipad as a result. UPDATE: Almost a week after the update, this still isn’t fixed. UPDATE 2: Fixed and working well. To be fair, the developer was quick to respond. So kudos for that!
Great!
by Kami Asuka on 2017/07/24 07:10
Have had this app for a while and love it! I've used it on multiple devices and it's a great way to lock pictures you don't want others to see. People tend to take my phone from my hands and go through it. However, I do wish that at least the pro version of the app could also have a section for notes! I think it would be a cool idea!
Where did my pictures go!!!???
by JamesNicvkname on 2019/04/22 20:12
I installed the new version in April 2019 and all my pictures are GONE!! They only show white tiles now in the app and there has been no update to fix this! Do not buy or use this app if you are trying to keep pictures. I had no problems for a while and then one update and POOF everything is gone. GONE. Buy/Try another app...
Good app, wish video function was better.
by JC Redd on 2018/08/28 20:58
Works as advertised. Videos store in their original format, so if you’ve turned them using iMovie, they revert back to the original format. Also, some video transfers don’t come through so check before you delete from your original source.
Awesome
by Appleman7934 on 2017/05/18 05:00
Private photo vault is the best app I have found for protecting my pictures. The interface is very nice and easy to use. I really like the break in reports. Anyone that tries to get into my pictures gets a picture secretly taken of their face and logs the time and location of the break in. And the ability to have a second secret account that you can show prying people and keep your real photos private is great. All you have to do is set up the second account. It gets its own password. And then when people ask to see the pictures, you input the fake password and they see the fake account. Really cool.
Kid safe
by John G 1968 on 2018/01/11 05:27
I let my kids play games on my phone now and then. That happens less often now that they also have phones, but either way I don't want them accessing my private photos. This app works great for securing them! The app's icon is visible alongside the other apps on my phone, but it's contents remain safely secured. Works for me.
Was Awesome
by Marc Egba on 2019/03/15 06:41
Used to be an awesome app. I also store very sensitive data in this app. But Your last update has caused a glitch in my albums. Content is not showing. Password recognition is no longer straight. I am on the verge of loosing very important set of sensitive data I had saved in this app. Please can this be corrected and urgently?
Tricky but nice
by Nakataboi on 2017/09/21 03:30
Was a bit tricky getting some videos and pictures into this app from the computer. I found that if you Dropbox the movie you want to add, save it to the camera roll, then import to the photo locker it will work. The iTunes import just fails though. Is nice once it works.
The BEST photo storage app
by IronChefVet on 2019/12/11 15:28
Been using this app for well over a year and it just keeps getting better. New features and everything works great with very little bugs or performance issues. Have over 28gb protected in the app and feel safe knowing they are there.
Excellent
by Wretched Hyena on 2020/03/23 15:29
Easy photo upload. Good editing. My only complaints are that it sometimes changes the order of photos after I’ve arranged them in the order I want, and a minor problem that some of the thumbnails go white temporarily. I had another app before that crashed on uploading. This one seems quite stable.
It's not perfect but...
by The•Reader on 2019/07/28 03:08
I've use this app for about two years it works as indicated but with flaws. It will sometime received a picture but not move it back to your camera roll and it will the a video and reformat it in a way there renders it useless and unable to be viewed That being said 90% of the time it works well.
Apparently abandoned
by stephenfleming on 2018/01/31 19:44
iTunes importing stopped working months ago with an iOS11 update, and causes an immediate crash. The app still hasn’t been updated, Tech support doesn’t respond to email. I think it’s dead, Jim. Fundamentally, they never figured out how to work with Apple’s new Photo Library format, so folders are ignored and albums are presented in random order... not very useful when you have 500 albums in 20 folders! Great concept, but the creaky underpinnings have caught up with it. Without a rewrite, I’ll be looking for a replacement.
Zero support if your password is wrong.
by Plymouth 3512 on 2019/10/31 22:25
This is a horrible app. I have tried unsuccessfully to contact the company because of entering an incorrect password . I will lose all my priceless photos if I cannot get into the folder Sent numerous emails with zero response x Terrible customer service

Great but misses one function
by SJPHD on 2020/07/22 00:17
I love this app. But, to my chagrin, I discovered that if a user accidentally deletes an image, it is gone forever. In most apps, there is a guard against any such mishaps by using a Trash folder and allowing users to “undelete” images. The software developers need to consider adding this feature. Till then, there is a weakness in this app.
Emailed support and no response
by AndreB.201 on 2020/07/20 11:39
Use at your own risk. I uploaded all of my pictures to the picture vault pro because I was trying to save space. My phone was stolen at the park. I brought a new one re-downloaded the app and can not recover my pics. I emailed the support team twice two weeks ago and have not received a response yet

App Keeps Crashing.
by TwoShoeBenLouLou on 2020/07/07 09:22
Just bought this app for $6.99, the price before was $3.99?! Anyway, read great reviews on it, so got it. But having a bad experience with it! Trying to import photos into the app... it keeps crashing!!! Then crashes my phone!! This app, is not worth it at all.
Transfer between apps.

Pro version I see no difference between the lite version except no ads and maybe the decoy version ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I forgot how it was before. Easy to import and it deletes the photos you needa “save”. All in all I give a 10/10. Very reliable app

I’ve been using this app (pro version) for so many years and its really great,simple to use and fun. But one thing that is bothering me a little is that every app icon has changed since iOS 6 till today but this app! and it kinda show its age... (remember this app can be used to hide personal stuff but now with the first glance anyone can see it because of its looks). And one suggestion : please design more than one app icon for your users to choose from (like for example the Telegram App), support for Dark mode and an ability for decoy login to use Touch ID & Face ID (so we could enter passcode for the original Stuff OR use Touch ID & Face ID for decoy Account. Make a setting section with less access for Decoy so it Looks more Real. Long story short; the App is great but it’s time for some changes Fellas.

Lost photos
by Law1825 on 2020/04/15 05:02
I got a new phone and re downloaded the Pro app which I already had but all my pics were not there. They are not in the cloud because I deleted them after putting them in this vault. I wand my pictures back. Please help!
Doesn’t Transfer Pics To New Phone
by JRT Reviewer on 2020/04/12 14:12
I have been using this for years and loved it until recently. Now not feeling the same. The Pro version did not transfer pics & videos to my new iPhone 11. The free version transferred without issues. So now I am stuck with the daunting task importing pics to my camera roll on old phone, moving to new location in the cloud and/or computer then moving pics back into Photo Vault Pro. Also I could not find a way to contact customer service. Very disappointed & extremely frustrated.
Great app!

by Wretched Hyena on 2020/03/23 15:29
Easy photo upload. Good editing. My only complaints are that it sometimes changes the order of photos after I’ve arranged them in the order I want, and a minor problem that some of the thumbnails go white temporarily. I had another app before that crashed on uploading. This one seems quite stable.

Works well. Hides stuff Update: twice over the last year I've logged in and all of my pictures are gone. Now they are hidden so well I'll never find them. This used to be a great all but losing all my pictures blows. Fortunately I used Darkbox as a backup and not one picture has ended up missing.
Lost Hundreds Photos

Lost hundreds of photos months ago due to a software glitch. The app shows an empty thumbnail where the pictures were. The developer refuses to respond or fix the issue.

I purchased app previously, but suddenly could not find it on iPhone, nor in iCloud. All photos and videos gone. And had to repurchase app. Thanks for nothing!
Thanks so much!
by Olai Black on 2020/01/13 13:36
I bought this app a few years ago, and I just wanted to say thank you for continuing to support it so actively. The one time I had an issue with a new version of iOS, your support team was excellent, and it was resolved quickly with no data lost. The app has always been top-notch, and works perfectly now with iOS13. Many thanks for your time and effort.
Works great.

The BEST photo storage app
by IronChefVet on 2019/12/11 15:28

by MercWithAMouth187 on 2019/12/08 11:26
Great app, however allow creation of folders via WiFi or allow the upload of entire folders via WiFi, in doing so you would make the app even more useable especially when transferring from a computer to the app and vice versa.
Great photo editor too
by Covertfreq on 2019/12/07 18:44
Whoa just realized this is also an excellent photo editor that has deeper features than your typical straight up photo editor as well as private photo storage and browser to boot. It’s a self contained safe zone.

Love it! Works as advertised. Easy to setup and use.
by Kevin Rissell on 2019/10/28 22:02
when imported (you still have to clear the ‘recently deleted’ folder in the public photos app). Allows good organization for imported photos and vids. Quick and easy.
Very limited features
by Fed Up WB User on 2019/10/26 10:11
No way to sort photos by most recently used or other useful sort orders. Videos can’t be set to slow motion or fast motion, can’t be set to loop automatically, etc. App is at least stable, does not crash, so that’s something, but would be great if they created even some modest capabilities beyond simple display.

Latest update- pasting photos copied from web site

This update has eliminated the facility to paste photos copied from web sites. I’m assigning 5 stars provisionally hoping you’ll reinstate this feature. Otherwise a smart, secure storage app.

by FF Rory on 2019/10/05 08:17
So far I’ve liked working with this app. The last one I had they stopped updating it and it stopped working and they only thing that this app don’t have that my old one did was 1. In the old one I could create sub folders within a file to organize a little more. No big deal I just have more main files now. 2. It doesn’t have a document or text area where I could copy and paste texts or even passwords in a file. Otherwise it interacts with other apps transferring pictures very well.

by Mazakdude on 2019/10/04 02:43
This app has performed exactly as advertised. It keeps data completely secure, as far as I know. I wish there was a way to change the icon for the app. Nothing screams try to snoop like a picture of a safe with a lock on it. Be nice to replace it with something like knitting tips or celebrity political views. You know something no would really care to investigate.
Still have lots of “lost” photos
by Aljasper on 2019/10/03 12:44
I just downloaded the first update in several months. I was hopeful that it would finally let me view photos that were “lost” after their last update. Unfortunately, my photos and videos still show as blank or gray squares in the app and cannot be viewed. I don’t know why they won’t fix this. Based on other reviews from the past few months, I’m far from the only person who experienced this problem. Stay away from this app!

Destroyed more than half my library
by throwaway99887766 on 2019/10/01 19:26
I used Photo Vault Pro to store videos I shoot for my work. At some point, about half of them — more than 200 videos – became grayed out with no thumbnail image. When I try to play them, I get spinning gears but the vid never plays. I’ve waited over a year for an update to fix the problem and I’ve gotten no response to my emails to customer service. Do not use this app unless you don’t mind losing your photos.
Upgraded to pro and lost all my files
by Golucky93060 on 2019/10/01 15:22
I upgraded to pro because I was annoyed by the pop up ads. I ended up with two icons for the app, I deleted the non-pro one and my stuff disappeared.
Security
by Bigdave10384 on 2019/10/01 12:28
I’ve used these for years and always felt that private documents and pictures of most significance are absolutely secure. It is a comfortable feeling.
Recommendation
by Duva2223 on 2019/09/29 23:22
I like this app very much, but I would love to have the capability to copy and paste within a photo file, meaning be able to paste pics for organizational purposes instead of having to hold and drag them to where I want them. Once your files have thousands of pics per file like mine do, it takes forever to drag a pic to where you would like to place it within a file.

New phone, auto-updates everything. This is the only app that gave me problems. White tile or wavy gray placeholder. I’ll update a few more times over the next few months hoping they fix it. Then, I’ll delete the app and tell everyone I meet in my medical practice, kayak club, travel group, and social circle not to use.

Great app! UX needs improvement.
by Clark Battle on 2019/05/07 18:53
Ive been using this app (pro version) for many years now and its never lost a pic. The photo editor is amazing! Sometimes ill even import a photo just to edit it and then export it because the editor is so much more capable than the stock iOS photo editor. I use this app every day. It's persisted photos over bricked phones with no worries. Rock solid. My only complaint is that it requires way too many button clicks to do most things. For example, to import a photo from you library it requires nine button clicks! The worst it the three dialogs that must be dismissed after every import. Two of them could easily be removed. The experienced user doesn’t need to read those warnings every single time. Editing a photo also requires way too many clicks. Taking a photo within the app is a great feature but each photo requires four clicks! It should be one. The app is stable and well coded but it smells like the software developer was also the UX Designer. If thats the case it could really use a dedicated designer. Developers think from the perspective of the technology (for example the photo library they chose). Designers think from the perspective of the user. It's a huge difference and it shows. One missing feature is nested directories. Even two levels would be enough. Another missing feature is multiple (more than two) alternate vaults. There's no reason why there should be only two.
Update review for 10.1
by Blade1984 on 2019/03/17 19:24
First off, the update did fix some of the issues. Log in is faster, however, it seems if you import an video or edit, a large chunk of your pictures and videos become placeholders and not the picture itself. I’ve lost big slices of my content and since my device backed up with the new version, I can not restore back. So I hope that the next update will restore my items. I am sorry to say that I may have to start moving what items that are left to an different platform. I’ll give the designers of this program a week or so before I do. But sadly, until then, my use of the application will have to be at a minimum.
I hate the new version of the app
by Stopaskingformydamnname! on 2019/04/06 22:33
The previous version of this app was very stable between updates and I’ve been able to add and edit large numbers of photos without problems on my Ipad ever since I bought the pro version nearly 3 years ago. Well lo and behold my Ipad somehow turned on auto update in the App Store without my express permission and installs this train wreck of an app. I am unable to move pictures around in my albums without the app crashing and not saving my changes. Also when I scroll through an album random thumbnails will turn white and I have to scroll up or down on the screen to restore the thumbnail images. Restarting my Ipad does nothing to resolve the issues and reinstalling the app is completely unreasonable due to the amount of pictures I’d have to back up somewhere and reinstall. I also am not a fan of the edit toolbar changes. It isn’t as intuitive as the last version. The crop tool in particular is very buggy and the image keeps moving around on my screen when I try to adjust what I want to crop. This is very disappointing because I used this app extensively and there aren’t really any better alternatives on the App Store. I hope someone is actually reading these reviews (although I seriously doubt it) and gets to work on repairing this “update”. Otherwise I think I’m done using this app for good. Device info: Ipad Pro non cellular version 256GB storage capacity 130GB used purchased in 2018 IOS version 12.1.1
Rip off 2
by ScrewyLouie 47 on 2019/01/15 14:29
I had the same problem I got a new iPhone and when everything backed up from iCloud onto it my photo vault app was empty and I lost precious pictures of my grandchildren and other memories that I cannot get back. It’s sad. Now I bought this brand new iPhone and the same thing happened again my pictures are gone and all I have is a clean photo vault to start with. This app and I think I paid $1.99 for it I can’t remember is a rip off and it screwed me over on my memories that I can no longer get back to show somebody or see ever again.
I love this app
by road dog three on 2019/03/29 07:19
For years i’ve been compiling photos and videos without any categorization. This app, allows you to save, categorize, crop picture, Display as a slideshow, lock album files, export import from iPhone to computer and vice versa and much more. Once the files have been Uploaded to photo vault, one has the option of deleting them from photo album on iPhone or keeping them. Don’t waste your time on the free app of this version, it doesn’t work properly, nor allow full upload of the pictures. One problem I’ve experienced thus far, is the creation of albums. Sometimes I have to tap numerous times for the creation of the album. For four bucks, it’s money well spent.
Missing photos.
by drpkckjo on 2018/04/01 04:10
So, I bought this app yesterday after reading all the good reviews. Well today, I looked through the photos I had, and some wouldn’t show up?!? Just this picture of a wave like graphic. You can see the photo in the menus, but when you click to enlarge it, that generic graphic comes up. So thanks for that. I knew those reviews looked sketchy. Probably reviews made up by the company. Sure it’s easy to use, but is this app doesn’t keep the photos I put in it, what use is it? Pure garbage.
Bug Report
by Lux2412 on 2019/01/18 19:58
Great app does what it promises and the Import From Clipboard (aka Pasting the pic without downloading it is EXTRA useful) HOWEVER when I’m in the Gallery on my iPhone, select multiple images and try to Import them from the Share panel it tries to load them in the popup but crashes, only works for 1pic at a time. App and software is both updated to latest, tried removing and re-adding app from Share panel, rebooting my phone nothing worked. Reinstalling is not an option since there are so many pics i would have to migrate. Importing multiple photos from app works but isn’t as conveniet. Developer pls fix.
Best Photo and Video Manager
by Frequent Flyer 4321 on 2018/02/20 20:55
PVP crushes all competitors with outstanding functionality and smooth integration including excellent management of photo storage, (completely independent of Apple photo library), killer photo edit features, a good browser, and easy uploads and downloads. CONS No browser tabs which make it very difficult to use with some websites, no resume video from last location, no multiple photo select with an easy tap and swipe motion, no user assigned photo attributes such as favorites.
Great features and organization beyond camera roll
by letterb on 2017/06/02 16:57
Well worth the price. 2nd photo account is useful. Breakin reports are awesome too. This is great for all kinds of things you don't want on your normal camera roll like memes or crude things, and it's great for albums like Simpsons or your favorite show quotes, receipts or recipes, notes from class. Then your camera roll can be just an unorganized photo dump. New interface is great, lots of new useful features. I love the alarm that catches people who put in the wrong pin.
It Works!
by Knitpicker59 on 2018/02/01 19:35
I have searched for months to find a secure photo app that actually works and isn’t another of the many bait and switch apps that barely function. This app works, it is easy to use, and it perfectly uploads photos from my computer and it is easy to sync between my PC and Apple devices. The best thing is that there is a real developer behind this who is dedicated to responding to questions and continuously improving the program. Thank you so much!!!
Cannot recover password!!!
by Blanknickname152033 on 2019/06/18 01:26
I have used this app for a while. I set up a recovery email so that in the case that I forget my password I could still use the app. Well I recently forgot my password and the prompt asked me if I would like an email with my password. I said yes and went to find the email. THEY DID NOT SEND ANYTHING. I tried it again several times and still no email. They have my correct email address and it says “message sending”, but I didn’t get anything. (Yes, I checked the spam folder and all the other folders). I sent in a complaint about it and they said that they would get back to me, but I have heard nothing. I’m very frustrated, because I set up the recovery email, so why isn’t it working??
Older then an week ago Photo Vault was much better.
by rathaDWC on 2019/03/29 16:17
The Old Photo Vault got all these good reports. Your new one has no blemish controls, or and the filter are not as good as the older app. Others who feel the same way state your experiences. Maybe we all can get the Photo Vault people to offer the old one. Also why can a app company change an app without notice. When I purchase an app I should have some say if I want to upgrade. Bring back the old Photo Vault.

by LovinItForSure on 2017/06/15 07:07
The title of this review says it all. At first, I used the app but still didn't trust it to keep anything totally secure. Then progressed from there to trusting it more and more. On a device that we are scared to keep anything REALLY private on, this app has restored that lost value of having private material on the device we take with us everywhere we go. Should the device fall into the wrong hands, our data stays hidden. Nice.
So far so good
by Steel_tiger1 on 2017/09/24 13:17
Wonderful tool to keep those special pictures out of sight. Easy to transfer them to the app and keep them safe from prying eyes. Only wish you could text them directly from the app instead of having to move them back to your pics album. Then remember to move them again. Update: you can text pictures right straight from the app now. So it is perfect for those special pictures.
Fine vault; needs improvements
by MikeSooch on 2017/07/05 13:33
I purchased the pro version of this app to replace what I feel was the best photo vault app out there, Stash. But Stash, however, appears to have been discontinued and will be obsolete under future OS versions. This app is fine and has a clean interface, and is quite fast in wireless import, but there are a few features I'd like to see added. For one I'd like to see tabbed browsing on the included browser. Also, I'd like to see integration with Dropbox. Overall, though, I'm happy with this app.

Bought pro version doesn't have all the functions it only has basic functions says you need to upgrade when you try won't let you because you already bought pro version....need fixed. Can't say if I will like app because it is not working right to even try it. Makes me nervous to store videos on site not functioning right to begin with.
No Favoriting, Limited zoom-in, Slow w large libraries
by rspinoza on 2019/02/22 11:11
Works relatively decently, as advertised. However, limitations compared with native photos app on the iPhone: - No Favoriting. In fact, it doesn't preserve the fact that you have favored at certain photos, as you import them. - Limited Zoom-in. In the native Photos app, you can zoom in quite far on any photo. You can't zoom in as far in this app. - Takes a little bit too long, when importing from a large photo library. It takes a while just to let you start importing.
Your app has kept my evidence safe. Thank you

I have had to keep a very ugly, messed up file hidden for some time now. Tonight once again the meth has taken him over. I have sent the file to several people and hope I don't get in trouble for sending such messed up stuff. If something should happen and the threats keep coming your app made it possible to find who is responsible.
Angry, Mad, and Furious

Days have passed and new versions have been released. But the most serious problem—turning existing files into unreadable empty files—has not been solved; nor has the development team released any statement regarding the glitches and warned customers against updating until the problem is solved. As a Pro user I am very disappointed at the team and this App. I felt my support in the last few years has been tossed into water like nothing... For those interested in purchasing the Pro version especially, please refrain from doing so until they solve the problem, if ever. For those Pro users, DO NOT UPDATE at all!
Amazing but needs alittle something
by Hammerkirby101 on 2017/07/05 15:11
I love this app I use it all the time and because of that I have ALOT of folders. I wish you could add a feature that allows you to put your folders into categories, like I have family folders dog folders and cat folders you would be able to put all the dog folders in 1 big folder and it still would have your smaller folders
No Responce

I have used photo Vault for a few years now and have used this program to show my clients the pictures I have taken as a photographer. Of course I have other backups of my photos, but, one day I clicked on the program and all my pictures and albums were wiped out for some reason. The very disappointing part is that I wrote there customer support team over five weeks ago and they never did respond to me as to what may have caused this to happen. I feel they only care about taking my money and being a customer is no concern to them.
Works as described, no problems
by maliVuk on 2017/06/03 19:57
The fact that it is currently being supported is the most important feature for me. I had to transfer an archive of videos and photos from another app which is no longer supported and which Apple warns will not work after the next major iOS upgrade. Other than that, it has worked flawlessly.
Gifs are very laggy!! PLEASE FIX.
by ldj55 on 2019/05/12 20:56
When I first downloaded this app a couple of months ago, large gifs could be imported to this app withought any problem, and they ran at 25 frames per second, but I believe after the recent update, all the gifs in my albums have d to run very slow, as if they were missing frames. This wasn’t a problem before, as I could have gifs as large as 50mbs and they still ran smoothly. I would reeeally like for this to be fixed, especially since I payed for this app. Thanks.
I love this app
by Wolfgirl on 2018/08/20 19:23
Do you guys support iCloud too? I don't wanna lose my pictures if something happens to my iPhone or I'm getting a new upgrade. Also, can you guys make the folders have folders within the folders too please? Ya know for example. If I make a rainbow folder and within it I make folders for separate colors like red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Yeah like that. Can you guys make that happen please? Thx!
Thanks so much!
by Olai Black on 2020/01/13 13:36
I bought this app a few years ago, and I just wanted to say thank you for continuing to support it so actively. The one time I had an issue with a new version of iOS, your support team was excellent, and it was resolved quickly with no data lost. The app has always been top-notch, and works perfectly now with iOS13. Many thanks for your time and effort.
Update Worked
by Mpm185 on 2019/03/13 22:33
I recently wrote a slightly negative review of this app due to a recent upgrade. The upgrade on my phone and ipad caused the app to crash immediately. I contacted support who responded within 24 hours and within 3 days a new update was released. App now works perfectly. Have used this app for two years and am very satisfied. Thanks for the update and awesome customer support 👍
Great till last update
by ryangooddj on 2019/03/22 19:44
Love the app and have used it for a long time, though with the recent update I can’t transfer videos from iTunes and drop into the main file like I’ve always been able to do. Maybe because I’m on iPhone 6? Either way it’s been a solid app for years so maybe I’ll find a solution to my issue.
This version has an issue
by jordan.mel on 2018/04/10 15:39
Love this app, but big problem this issue: When a video repeats automatically, the heads-up display of sorts pops back up every time. Each time a video restarts automatically, the menu with X, volume, play/pause, and go forward/back 15 seconds appears. It is extremely annoying. Please fix in next update!
Worked Great, Now Defective
by brucegz on 2019/03/21 13:10
This WAS a great app. Then a week ago, all of my pix in 2 folders disappeared. The app shows that they are there but they’re invisible. That’s on my iPad. On my phone, pix just started disappearing. Also, the wireless import doesn’t work at all. Turns off the wireless when connecting and zaps off the app. Hope they get this app fixed. Went from a hero to a zero in 1 week after their last stable update.
Perfect.....so far
by Mazakdude on 2019/10/04 02:43
This app has performed exactly as advertised. It keeps data completely secure, as far as I know. I wish there was a way to change the icon for the app. Nothing screams try to snoop like a picture of a safe with a lock on it. Be nice to replace it with something like knitting tips or celebrity political views. You know something no would really care to investigate.
Reliable and secure
by Anon2568 on 2019/04/03 08:29
I have been using this app to store stuff for several years now. Everything still works fine after all this time and it’s not hard to transfer data to another apple device. The built in web browser also adds a nice layer of privacy and convenience. Thank you developers.
Mostly excellent
by Timstal on 2017/09/20 19:26
All this app needs is a better way to reorganize pictures in an album. Currently the only option is to drag images one at a time. This is very unsatisfactory when an album has hundreds of pictures, or when you want to move several pictures together.
Great app Feature Request
by Lancebuzz on 2020/06/27 01:48
I love this app. So many features and privacy settings. I have a feature request. It would be nice to have a feature that would delete photos and videos in a certain time, if the user has not checked back in at that specified time. I would love this feature added. Please add!!!!!!!
latest update crashes, bricks ipad BROKEN UPDATE!
by Miguel Luna on 2019/03/13 21:53
this is unusable. stalls when attempting to load a video and essentially bricks the ipad. I keep having to reboot the ipad as a result. UPDATE: Almost a week after the update, this still isn’t fixed. UPDATE 2: Fixed and working well. To be fair, the developer was quick to respond. So kudos for that!
Great!
by Kami Asuka on 2017/07/24 07:10
Have had this app for a while and love it! I've used it on multiple devices and it's a great way to lock pictures you don't want others to see. People tend to take my phone from my hands and go through it. However, I do wish that at least the pro version of the app could also have a section for notes! I think it would be a cool idea!
Where did my pictures go!!!???
by JamesNicvkname on 2019/04/22 20:12
I installed the new version in April 2019 and all my pictures are GONE!! They only show white tiles now in the app and there has been no update to fix this! Do not buy or use this app if you are trying to keep pictures. I had no problems for a while and then one update and POOF everything is gone. GONE. Buy/Try another app...
Good app, wish video function was better.
by JC Redd on 2018/08/28 20:58
Works as advertised. Videos store in their original format, so if you’ve turned them using iMovie, they revert back to the original format. Also, some video transfers don’t come through so check before you delete from your original source.
Awesome
by Appleman7934 on 2017/05/18 05:00
Private photo vault is the best app I have found for protecting my pictures. The interface is very nice and easy to use. I really like the break in reports. Anyone that tries to get into my pictures gets a picture secretly taken of their face and logs the time and location of the break in. And the ability to have a second secret account that you can show prying people and keep your real photos private is great. All you have to do is set up the second account. It gets its own password. And then when people ask to see the pictures, you input the fake password and they see the fake account. Really cool.
Kid safe
by John G 1968 on 2018/01/11 05:27
I let my kids play games on my phone now and then. That happens less often now that they also have phones, but either way I don't want them accessing my private photos. This app works great for securing them! The app's icon is visible alongside the other apps on my phone, but it's contents remain safely secured. Works for me.
Was Awesome
by Marc Egba on 2019/03/15 06:41
Used to be an awesome app. I also store very sensitive data in this app. But Your last update has caused a glitch in my albums. Content is not showing. Password recognition is no longer straight. I am on the verge of loosing very important set of sensitive data I had saved in this app. Please can this be corrected and urgently?
Tricky but nice
by Nakataboi on 2017/09/21 03:30
Was a bit tricky getting some videos and pictures into this app from the computer. I found that if you Dropbox the movie you want to add, save it to the camera roll, then import to the photo locker it will work. The iTunes import just fails though. Is nice once it works.
The BEST photo storage app
by IronChefVet on 2019/12/11 15:28
Been using this app for well over a year and it just keeps getting better. New features and everything works great with very little bugs or performance issues. Have over 28gb protected in the app and feel safe knowing they are there.
Excellent
by Wretched Hyena on 2020/03/23 15:29
Easy photo upload. Good editing. My only complaints are that it sometimes changes the order of photos after I’ve arranged them in the order I want, and a minor problem that some of the thumbnails go white temporarily. I had another app before that crashed on uploading. This one seems quite stable.
It's not perfect but...
by The•Reader on 2019/07/28 03:08
I've use this app for about two years it works as indicated but with flaws. It will sometime received a picture but not move it back to your camera roll and it will the a video and reformat it in a way there renders it useless and unable to be viewed That being said 90% of the time it works well.
Apparently abandoned
by stephenfleming on 2018/01/31 19:44
iTunes importing stopped working months ago with an iOS11 update, and causes an immediate crash. The app still hasn’t been updated, Tech support doesn’t respond to email. I think it’s dead, Jim. Fundamentally, they never figured out how to work with Apple’s new Photo Library format, so folders are ignored and albums are presented in random order... not very useful when you have 500 albums in 20 folders! Great concept, but the creaky underpinnings have caught up with it. Without a rewrite, I’ll be looking for a replacement.
Zero support if your password is wrong.
by Plymouth 3512 on 2019/10/31 22:25
This is a horrible app. I have tried unsuccessfully to contact the company because of entering an incorrect password . I will lose all my priceless photos if I cannot get into the folder Sent numerous emails with zero response x Terrible customer service
