How do Calculator Vault Apps hide photos on an Iphone device?
Let take Secret Photo Vault for example
Secret Photo Vault protects your personal photos and prevents them from coming in your camera roll. With a PIN based access to your photos, no one else can accidentally see the private photos on your device. You can zoom in and out of hidden photos with multi-touch; rotate hidden pictures left and right. If you forgot to exit the gallery vault, the app will lockout as soon as your phone goes to sleep mode. Besides, the app allows you using camera in the app to take photo or video directly in the app. The Photo Vault Calculator UI has been designed with tablets in mind as well so as to provide the ultimate viewing pleasure on both iOS smart phones and tablets.
With all of these features, as a parent, you will never feel comfortable if your child use such kind of app for sexting or storing sexy photos or videos.
Warning Signs of Calculator Vault Apps
Many parents may wonder how and when to check to see if their child has a Calculator app hidder (in plain sight) on their phone.
Maybe your teen is turning their device off or moving it away from your sight when you enter the room or you can take a look. A refusal to give you their passwords is a pretty good indicator that your child is engaging in something they do not wish you to see.
Every application installed on your children’s devices should be properly vetted by you. Boomerang makes that easy to do now. With it, you can block applications upon installation until you manually allow them. You will get the notification when your child wants to use a new app. You can check out the store and read the reviews and description of what the application does.
And lastly, if your child does hand their phone over, and you see duplicate apps on the phone, it could be a sign that they’re using a Secret Calculator vault to hide items they don’t want you to see. If you don’t see the app, but suspect it may have been downloaded, you can also check your child’s phone. You check in the Updates section of the App Store under “Purchased”. Any apps ever downloaded are stored in there.
Rather than checking every single fake calculator app on your child’s device, one quick way to check on an iOS device. You can go to Settings->Privacy->Camera. There is a list of every app that uses or has used the camera at one time or another.
