Unlike other private photo and video apps, this one is tiny, fast, safe and best of all, totally free without Ads. The current version 1.0.2 is only 7.2 MB in size. It is extremely easy to use. Run Photo Vault app on iPhone, you will need to set a passcode at first and you have the option to change it any time later from its settings. Choose a 4-digit numeric password.

If you forget your passcode to unlock the Photo Vault app in the future, you can reset it by answering the security question. To protect any sensitive images, pictures, videos and movies, tap the Add icon in the Photo Vault app, then access your Camera Roll and photo albums to find and import media files to the private file lock app. After that go to delete them from your Camera Roll and their original photo albums on iPhone.
