    Default photo vault on Verizon Galaxy S4

    Hey guys I ran verizon protect last night and it said photo vault is mal ware. So I tried to move my private pictures back in to my regular gallery so I can delete the app. However when I did that it says it can't move the private gallery back to the normal gallery. Any ideas what to do? I don't really wanna lose my pics in photo vault but may have no choice

    I've never been a big fan of anything Verizon puts on my phone... nor am I sure of it's reliability... or any other virus scan software, but if I was you I'd try some other well know virus scan software like Lookout to see if this claim is accurate. The only photo vault I could find on the Google Play Store is "PhotoVault - Hide Pictures," is this the app you are questioning? It would be strange for something to have a fairly good rating to be mal ware... and if it is that app, then maybe you need to un-encrypt the folder before you can copy files out of it, if that app let's you do that.

    Just my 2 cents on the subject since I don't use Verizon app, or this specific app.

    Also try moving those pictures to a computer.
