Apple removes photo locker that allowed users to hide photos behind a secret calcullator
Following police investigation, Apple removes calculator vault that allowed users to hide photos behind a secret calculator app
Apple recently removed a photo locker app from the App Store that allowed users to hide sensitive photos and videos. The photo locker app was called Calculator%. As you might expect, it is so popular among teenagers. Because, the teenagers want to hide certain content from the prying eyes of parents, teachers, and even friends.
While the App Store has a number of fake calculator that essentially offer the same type of functionality. Calculator% began making waves and attracting attention this month. Because it spread the secret calculator app was part of an investigation by the Durham Police.
The Calculator vault is a photo locker that children can use to hide photos or videos from their parents. The photos are hidden from view behind an icon that looks like a secret calculator. We hope that parents should discourage their children from using such an app.
There are any number of secret calculator apps that keep sensitive photos hidden behind a passcode. However, Calculator% stands out on account. It’s core functionality is not readily apparent when casually looking at the app icon itself.
