    I have a 'folder' that popped up and has a picture in it associated with a picassa emblem. I don't use picassa and I can't felete the picture either.

    Forget about QuickPic if you ask me.
    Its caused more problems when unhiding than it's worth.
    Plus, it doesn't hide them from File Explorer Apps.

    MediaVault hides them from every App & I've virtually no problem when unhiding them--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...inc.MediaVault

    But you have to really think though: Who would really sit on your phone and dig through a file explorer or other methods of trying to see what hidden photos there are?

    But I do understand, when you want to hide something, you mean everywhere.

    I just like how smoothly and easy QuickPic is.

    Not only for security but for convince too.
    For example if you upload to Dropbox on a regular basis each time you do you've got to scroll past the bunch of folders with a ".".
    Using MediaVault you don't.

    I hide those folders in ES, and put .nomedia files in stuff I don't want to see.

    I uses Photo Locker which works as a private gallery app. Need passcode to access and the pictures get encrypted. I don't even have to worry about people snooping around my phone and finding it because I have it on 'Stealth Mode'. Interesting function that hides the app icon so no one knows it's there
