Safe Lock – Shaking & Flipping Your Phone To Security

Safe Lock is an app that seeks to ensure your photos complete privacy from any would-be trespasser.

Listen, everyone does it. You take a photo that you’re really proud of, but you don’t… exactly what other people to see.

Maybe it’s a racy photo? Maybe it is a photo of your banking documents, or maybe it’s just the answer key to the treasure hunt you’ve been making. Regardless of what it is, you need to keep it secret.

Enter Safe Lock, a simple utility app that seeks to provide a clear and consistent way to ensure your photos, and yours, complete privacy.

Safe Lock is one those apps with a clearly defined purpose and nothing else. It exists to allow you to import photos – or take photos, for that matter – and keep them in a separate, more secure, location.

You can add photos from your regular photo real, or even photos from the cloud, whether that is Dropbox, Google drive or your own personal web server.

Once that photo has been added to Safe Lock, it automatically deletes it from your phone or cloud so as to ensure someone doesn’t get to it accidentally or maliciously. Don’t worry though; it checks with you first that it’s going to do that.

After that, you can secure your photos with additional layers of protection.

You can add a 4 digit (or 6 digit) pin code to your app, so that it requires you to input a code before you can even access it.

What’s even better is that Safe Lock also allows you to control certain gyroscopic actions that will lock your phone. For example, you can set the app (and indeed your phone too) to lock if you shake your phone vigorously; if you don’t want to shake it, you can set it to lock when you turn your phone over.

Though this does make it likely you’ll find yourself accidentally auto locking your app when you don’t mean to, it allows you to very quickly set your phone to lock itself if you fear your sensitive pictures or data becoming compromised. Whether this is your significant other or a friend suddenly taking the phone out of your hands, or you’ve been attacked and your phone is about to get taken away, this is a security-conscious person’s dream.

Safe Lock is an app that understands the imperative need for safety and security. With a range of options to lock and protect your phone, as well as ways to enable failsafe locking mechanisms based on movement, Safe Lock allows you to ensure your photos are more secure than ever.

It’s simple, utilitarian and doesn’t give itself a ridiculous amount of unnecessary privileges or flashy colors.
