Secret Photo Vault - Keepsafe

Secret Photo Vault - Keepsafe

Review

This photo locker and vault app promises to safely store your photos and videos so that no one but you could find them. That’s only partly true: sometimes, no one can find them, including you. But first things first – let’s take a closer look at the Secret Photo Vault app.

Design 5/5

The app features a rather clear and simple, yet neat design. You can choose from several custom color themes which are not, of course, a key feature but still a nice complement. For media files in your albums, you get to choose between a grid or mosaic display. Pretty conventional. The app lets you upload photos, videos, and gif files. For photos and videos, there are full-screen and slideshow viewing available.

The app itself is fairly easy to learn and to use, so I believe you won’t have any troubles getting used to the interface. What is more interesting is how this app actually works.

Content and Features 4/5

The main purpose of the app is to secure your personal files by locking them down. For that, you can use PIN protection, fingerprints touch ID, and, as they say, military-grade encryption. Also, you can take pictures directly in Keepsafe and share your files for a limited time with the Safe Send feature.

The premium account increases your opportunities. It lets you assign individual PIN codes to access particular albums and to store up to 5 thousand items in the app. Also, you can save the originals in the Private Cloud to save your phone’s memory. And if you deleted a photo by mistake, with the Keepsafe premium, you’re able to retrieve it. Finally, the premium account lets you customize the album covers and get rid of the ads. And all of that will cost you $9.99 per month or $23.99 per year.

User Experience 2/5

Here’s when it gets interesting. It seems to me really hard to get access or at least see your photos once they’re uploaded. Sometimes, the photos just disappear, and you don’t know where to look for them and where they were exported. Also, there is a big issue with the free account. After the last updates, the app keeps offering you to purchase a paid subscription to view your files. So, if you have some photos uploaded – you just can’t see them, not to mention manage. And if you decide to reinstall the app – the so-called “synchronized” files can be removed.

One more thing – videos take the eternity to upload. And I mean it: they take not hours but days and even weeks. Sometimes, videos can freeze the app. And after all of this, there is a chance you important video will be saved as a single picture. So, maybe it’s better just to leave videos alone.

Compatibility 5/5

The app is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch as well as Android-based phones and tablets. You can download Secret Photo Vault from both Google Play Store and AppStore. It requires iOS 10.0 or later and Android 4.4 and later.

Conclusion

At first, this app seems to be extremely helpful. But upon a closer view, all its drawbacks get clear. Even if there are plenty of useful features for storing and securing your personal data, I wouldn’t recommend this app. Try to find something more reliable to secrete away your photos.
