With over 75 million users currently using Keepsafe, it’s safe to say that many people have heard of us. Of these people, it could be your significant other, kids or those nosy family members that know what you’re up to with Keepsafe.
Now, just because someone knows that you are trying to hide a few of those personal photos in Keepsafe, doesn’t mean they will be able to gain access. You can take a few additional steps to lock down your Keepsafe Photo Vault by creating a fake pin , or enabling break in alerts .
But what if you would rather avoid people knowing that you have Keepsafe at all? After all, why should you have to explain yourself regarding the things you would like to keep private? It kind of defeats the purpose of having those secret photos and documents hidden doesn’t it? If you are using an Android device, then, the answer to this is available with the Keepsafe Calculator App . Instead of displaying in your apps that you have Keepsafe, you can disguise your Keepsafe app as a calculator app to hide photos, or even a virus scanner app. Even the snoopiest of significant others is not going to look through your virus scanner app to see what you’ve been hiding.
Using Keepsafe Calculator App to Hide Photos
If you’ve looked around the app stores for a calculator app to hide your photos, you’ve probably noticed a few different apps out there to do this. The good news is that you can get the best of both worlds using Keepsafe, and also the added security that the standard Keepsafe app offers.
Keepsafe offers a couple different options for disguising those secret photos as a calculator app. The first option is to download the Calculator Photo Vault app from Keepsafe . This is a separate app than your standard Keepsafe Photo Vault, but still offers the same security with the added bonus of displaying your photo vault as a calculator app that hides photos.
Using the Calculator Photo Vault from Keepsafe
After downloading the app from The Google Play Store , you will setup your hidden photos, videos and documents the same way as you do with the standard Keepsafe Photo Vault. To see step by step instructions for setup, check out this article.
Once you have created your pin or pattern for your Keepsafe calculator, you can start syncing over photos into your calculator photo vault. The Calculator Photo Vault enables users to create photo albums, and free up space on their iPhone by encrypting and hosting their photos in the Keepsafe private photo vault. Once you have your photo albums created and your photos, videos or documents in The Vault, you’re all set with the added security to keep those personal photos personal!
Here is how it works for unlocking your Vault, and what you see as a user.
Just like any other calculator app to hide photos, users will see a simple calculator app on their home screen. After opening the app, you will see a small icon on the top of your calculator with the Keepsafe logo. Tapping and holding this icon will bring up the pin pad to enter into your secret photo vault. From here, the app functions just as normal, enabling you to enter your pin and access your private photos.
But what happens after you unlock the calculator photo vault? How long does it stay unlocked? This is a common question that we receive, and no need to worry, we have you covered. After unlocking your calculator vault and then turning your phone screen off, the app will reset back to a calculator. This adds an extra layer of security just in case you’re checking out those private photos and have an unwanted request to “borrow” your phone.
Within the settings for the Calculator photo vault, you have the ability to customize how the app looks on your homescreen to make sure it's not a dead giveaway of what it is. With this flexibility, you can create a realistic calculator app to hide your photos and keep them for your eyes only.

The truth is that the calculator app to hide photos has been around for a while. There is no shortage of options out there to hide your photos with a calculator app. If your significant other or tech savvy kids have heard of the calculator app to hide photos (or let’s face it, actually use one themselves) then they might uncover your secret with a quick glance at your phone.
