    On my old evo phone all I had to do was to rename the photo with a (period) in front of it and it would hide the photo in my pictures, I think ?.Its been so long. I tried it on the GS3 and it did hide it in MY FILES but it still shows in the gallery. Do I have to put them in a folder and then a period first in folder name??? Thank you for your help.

    There's an app called keepsafe that will hide it with a password. It just renames the photos so it's not something that will hide it from a determined snooper.

    I password-protect the handset so my pictures, text messages, files, music & bank apps are all kept away from prying eyes.

    You can make a folder on your SD card. When you name the folder, put a dot in front of the name. That keeps the pictures from showing up in the gallery.

    You can take a look at Photo Locker. Like what its name says, it hide your photos from the main gallery, encrypt and lock them up in the app. You can even hide the app icon and then launch the app via 2 other methods that only you know since nobody knows that the app even exists.

    I need an app where I can password protect my pictures (and other folders) - however, when I am in viber or whatsapp and i want to access my picture gallery, i want it to also ask me for a password.

    I did get a very good app to password protect my gallery but i can still access my pics via viber or whatsapp without asking for a password then.

    Please help me

    PS. I would prefer not to use an app where i must move my pics or just hide them
