Best app for photos 5/5
This keeps my photos secure from accidental deletion, allows me catalogue them in folders and back them up off my device - all great functions I wanted. Obviously your photos are private which is what most people probably use this for. But these other functions by themselves are worth it.

Best Pic Storage Safe! 5/5
By CO Yeti
I have been using this app for about a year now, and it is the best I’ve found. I have used two other apps previously, and they didn’t do as good a job of holding the volume I require and their password lock for all transitions to other apps wasn’t as efficient. This one is great! The image modifiers work almost better than the Photos app itself, and I use them all the time to crop, sharpen, and enhance lighting. I have over 3GB of pics in this app and it loads fast and has great folder modifying capabilities. The WiFi upload/download is pretty manual, but a nice option. The screen lock when leaving the phone is great for hiding what you were looking at. The ‘delete after upload’ feature is wonderful, too!
The only suggestion I have for improvement is bulk organization functions within folders (it takes forever to get new pictures from the bottom of the folder to the top by dragging if you have more than 300 images in a folder). If you want to organize images alphabetically, any new additions take a lot of effort to get in place within the folder.
Great tool! Highly recommend!
I love this app 5/5

Cool, very private
Doesn’t work, just freezes 1/5
Ever since I purchased this app it has done nothing but cause problems. First major issue is that it will show I have pictures saved in the vault and then click on them and they don’t exist anymore— second— I can’t even transfer pictures anymore. It just freezes and I can’t do anything. What’s the point of this app. DONT BUY DONT DOWNLOAD! I had so many pictures saved in the app and now they don’t even exist.
4 out of 5 4/5
Would love an sort by sizes
“Best site to store everything. I have told many people about it, and now they use it”.

LOST PHOTOS 1/5
Lost photos I am unable to recover and deleted from my camera roll. They just show up as a black screen with a blue mountain. So upset. Don’t use this app.

Lost all my pics twice 2/5
I lost almost 150 pics just because they went black and I couldn’t fix them and they functionality is so bad that all of my pics got deleted cause I scrolled to much
Imported large video now it’s stuck 1/5
I can’t seem to retrive a large 30 GB video from this app. I need to move it back to the photo library. I used the Save Video button not Save To Files button.
It doesn’t show a transfer progress window unlike when I imported the video into the app. How can I extract this video?
Locked out 3/5
So for some reason my passcode isn’t working and since there’s no way to figure that out, did I just lose all my photos?
Solid but still missing a basic 4/5
Great vault app ... I’ve never had a problem with any functionality. Not supporting animated GIFs in earlier versions was a ridiculous oversight but that was addressed.
But another one has not ...
... all media players in any application or platform should include a looped play function whether you think we need it or not ... as standard as including a pause button.
Don’t worry even major apps like Dropbox haven’t figured this out. You guys have been great with updates so I’m sure you will!
When I upgraded Iphone 7 to the iPhone8plus all my pictures were restore to the app, now that I have the iphoneX I have no pictures restore to the the app. Why? What is going? How can I get all my pictures back?
Restore Problems 1/5
Have others encountered restore problems with the new iOS or device recently? I’ve lost over 100 photos and videos. I’ve reached out to the developer via email - have yet to hear a response.
I called Apple and was told that the issue lies with the developer in why my images did not fully restore
I’ve purchased this before 5/5
I upgraded this app and it shows that I didn’t ... I shouldn’t have to pay again
Great App, regular updates 5/5
Very useful and well designed. It’s been supported for many years, with frequent updates and good support
Very good app
Great...but could be even better! 4/5
Updated review for Private Photo Vault v9.2:
I’ve had Photo Vault for a long time, it’s a great app to safely store photos and videos. I love the fact that you can easily transfer files through iTunes as well. However, there are a couple of features that I think would make this a perfect 5-star app.
1. The new video playback UI is nicer than before and consistent with many other iOS apps in this aspect. Makes for a better viewing, but I think this could still be further improved. It is still as if the app opens a new page to play videos, where you need to ‘X’ out of the video to scroll onto the next one on the album. It should play as with iPhone’s Photos app so I can simply swipe onto the next video/photo in the album or even have an option to let it auto-play to the next video in the album.
2. No iCloud backup support. I’m not sure if this is an app function or a limitation by how Apple’s iCloud backup works, not crucial for me but would certainly be a huge plus. When I got the new iPhone a couple of months ago it did not tranfer ANY of the files in the app after I restored from iCloud backup, it’s as if I deleted and downloaded the app from scratch. Luckily I had also made a backup through iTunes so I re-restored from there. But it defeats the purpose of backing up on iCloud, which I do because I do not have any storage space left on my Mac, so this would be a great feature to have as well.
Overall definitely an app worth getting if you have any photos/videos you’d rather not have your friends/family/colleagues seeing while they recklessly scroll through your photos. The features I mention above would however be a huge plus and make this app worth a solid 5 stars for me.
Great app 4/5
As I don't have too much experience with this app. I do however enjoy what I have been exposed to so far. The UI is good and easy to use I would as if in the future there would be an option for a dark mode. As during the evening hours I'd prefer to have the option available to switch.
Deleted photos and the support 1/5
App was deleted tried contacting support several times about deleted pics and videos still have yet to hear from them
Great App just one small problem 4/5
I love this app it’s easy to use and the only problem I have encountered with it is that a while ago I started to notice that when I tried to play some of the videos I have saved, they won’t play and it will give me a message saying unsupported video format. I’m not sure why this is because they used to work. I have an iPhone that shoots 4K videos so idk if that is an issue where I have to lower the resolution or not and I’m also wondering if there’s a way I can recover those videos that won’t play.
Photos DISSAPPEAR! Zero Support 1/5
My Stored photos have begun to DISSAPPEAR!!!
The thumbnails are there but when I click on the thumbnail all I get is a grey icon!!! This has now happened to more than 50% of my photos!!!!!
I have written to the developer twice now with ZERO RESPONSE!!!!!!!!!!
Customer Service is virtually NON-EXISTANT!!!!!
They keep telling users that this issue is Fixed!
I will BELIEVE IT when I SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!...
One of my fav 4/5
I’ve been using this apps for a few years now, and I haven’t had any issues with it until now. Lately when I try to upload videos to my vault from my photo library my app usually either freezes on the uploading screen or it force closes on its own other than this recent issue I have no complaints with this app.
Great app 5/5
Best choice for a photo vault app!

Known Issue - not able to export 1/5
After trying the free version, upgraded to paid and immediately started having problems; unable to select more than one image to export, unable to actually export an image, and the app suddenly closes while attempting to export.
This is a known issue posted on their support site. I’ve contacted developer with zero response. Paid version is WORTHLESS.
