Need to protect some sensitive photos, videos, such as those sexy photos, confidential documents and images, ID card photos? Thankfully, many smart phones, like Samsung, Xiaomi, LG, have built-in tools to help their users protect those private photos. Are you using a Tecno mobile phone and searching for such a built-in tool to hide private photos and videos on the phone? On Tecno phones, we can’t find an app or space specially designed to hide our private content. It however comes with the Phone Master app with the App lock tool. We can make use of it to lock down any apps with a PIN, pattern or password on the phone.
Lock the whole Gallery on Tecno mobile phone
Find and launch the Phone Master app on your Tecno phone. You can find the App lock from its home screen or its Toolbox.
Tap to run App lock, you will be asked to set unlock pattern to lock or unlock apps. Draw the same pattern twice, then choose a security question and input its answer which we can use to recover or remove the app locker.
To lock all your photos or videos on Tecno phone, simply toggle the On/Off button besides the AI Gallery app.
Note we use the App lock to protect and lock the web browser and Play store in the above screenshot on Tecno mobile phone. It is the same to lock Gallery and any other apps.
Now go to open the Gallery app, you will get the authentication screen before you can access your photos and albums. Without the correct lock pattern, no one can view your photos, videos saved in the Gallery app.
Hide certain photos, videos on Tecno phone
Instead of hiding all photos, videos on Tecno phone, you can also choose to only protect or lock those sensitive ones. We can also use the App lock tool to achieve that. Open the Files or File Manager app on Tecno mobile, then move those images, videos, movies from the DCIM, the default folder all your camera photos and videos are saved, to a another folder on your internal storage. Then run the Phone Master > App lock to lock the Files and File Manager apps on your Tecno phone.
By doing so, others won’t even aware the existence of any hidden pictures and videos.
