    Password protect albums?

    Is there a way to password protect an album in your gallery? I have seen where you can hide it, but when I use QuickPic the album still shows even though it only shows one pic in the album.

    Thanks! I will look into those. Will this hide/lock them across all apps?

    Your just looking to keep someone out of certain pics right? Just remember its only an app. It will allow u to password protect the app but there are ways around it. Meaning they are great to keep the avg Joe from finding our pics but if its someone who knows the app they can bypass ur password. Just don't want u relying a hundred percent. U should always put a password on your lock screen to keep out unwanted guests.

    That is correct. I do have a password on my lock screen. I just don't want to hand someone I know my phone to look at pics and have some pics I don't want to be seen, be seen.

    The best way to do it without raising suspicion is move those photos to there own folder with a .txt file that contains just .nomedia along with that folder... This will keep the gallery from scanning and pulling pics from that folder... You can still go view them through a file viewer......

    Then one of these apps will be exactly what your looking for.

    Can you explain? Is that the title of the text file?
