Some of the privacy apps for iPhone really help to keep certain content on your iPhone private, even when you may have prying eyes or unauthorized use. To secure your pictures, Picture Safe (HiDef) by Collect3 is a must have. This app is password protected and enables you to separate, group and organize your pictures, plus a ton of other great features. They also have a version for videos and pictures called Video Safe. This has everything that the Picture Safe comes with, plus the ability to secure videos. A true two in one app! Another iPhone privacy app is Stash Pro by Hedonic Software. This offers secure private photos, videos, documents and web browsing. If you are looking for securing more than just pictures and videos, then this privacy app is for you. Securely view and store private documents and when browsing the web, surf without ever leaving a trail. This iPhone app is for the truly private person. If you are looking to secure all your passwords and personal data such as credit card numbers and bank account information, then Keeper Password & Data Vault by Callpod Inc will do just that. It will securely store all your passwords and personal data. It will ever generate passwords for websites and remember them for you. This is a great iPhone app to keep all that sensitive information in one place. This last iPhone privacy app is a must have if the unthinkable happens and you lose your iPhone. The Find My iPhone app by Apple is a great way to find it again, even if you just misplaced it. There are two ways of doing this. Install Find My iPhone app on an iOS device like iPad, iPod or another iPhone, login and locate your iPhone. You can also login to the Mobile Me website as well. Once logged in, you can remotely send a message to your phone, play a sound at full volume, set a passcode lock or completely wipe all your data from it. So in the case it was stolen, the thief wouldn’t have access to any of your personal information or contacts.
These privacy apps for iPhone that I reviewed are just a few of many iPhone privacy apps out there in the Apple app store. The ones that I reviewed are all paid for apps except the one from Apple. The costs of these privacy apps for iPhone are very reasonable considering the highly sensitive content you maybe securing. I think a few dollars is worth having that peace of mind. Also, one thing to keep in mind when choosing a iPhone privacy app is the “free” apps tend to be designed to display ads and market to you more than paid apps, with the exception of Apple. Even though Apple takes measures to protect consumers from developers gathering information and giving it to third parties, buyer beware the next time you’re downloading that “cool free app”, it could be spying on you. When in doubt, just pay the few dollars for the app. It’s not going to break the bank and I’m sure the developers would appreciate it for all their hard work. Even though we are living in a world that everyone is broadcasting their picture and video content everywhere, we can personally take steps to protect our private content on our iPhone, whatever it may be.
