”Getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant.” – Mitchell Kapor
Reality check: Since Tim-Berner Lee invented the World-Wide Web in 1989, we´ve never really had 100% of our privacy to ourselves. The Internet does have a multitude of advantages, especially in connecting human beings from anywhere in the world through different modes of online media (and Baby Yoda memes), but in the process it has also destroyed hopes of us ever keeping our private lives to ourselves.
In fact, studies have shown that cyber-crime activities in the US reached a whopping 1.47 billion in 2019. Most of these crimes have been highly attributed to identity theft, either through illegal access of personal information or through the illegal collection of photos for profit.
So can we still continue enjoying our privacy in the modern era?

Unlocking the Powers of Keepsafe Part 2: Locking Photo Albums
By this time, we can assume that you already have a small idea about what Keepsafe Photo Vault offers.
You already have a few photo albums on your app, but what if you want to up your privacy game even more? With a Keepsafe Premium account, you can unleash the app´s full potential and create individual encrypted pin codes for each photo album.
Here's how it's done:
Access your photo albums on the homescreen. Find the album or folder that you wish to lock. Tap the three blue dots at the bottom right corner of the album. Tap Album Lock (notice how by default this is set to unlocked, meaning it does not require a special pin to access while inside KeepSafe). you will be taken to a preview screen. From here, select Lock This Album. Enter a specific password for this album.
Voila. Upon creating a password for your photo album, Keepsafe will immediately require any person to input a password for each time a specific photo album is opened.
The Keepsafe Photo Vault does wonders for your digital privacy, at least to keep your mind at ease and make sure you do not ever fall victim to sudden cyber-crime activities in the future.
