If you need a way to password protect the images and videos on your Windows Phone, take a gander at Photo Lock. Now is a great time to give the app a try because it's now a free app. The price reduction (the app is normally $.99) is in celebration of Photo Lock reaching 65,000 downloads. The free offer is good through August 10, 2012.
What is Photo Lock you ask? It is an app that will let you securely store images and videos on your Windows Phone. Photo Lock also includes basic editing tools and the ability to record video footage from the app.
When you first launch Photo Lock, you'll need to set up an account (free) and from there you simply import images or videos you need protecting. Additional features include:
- Crop, rotate, add nice effects within the app
- Slideshow support
- Swipe navigation between photos
- Multiple account support
- Multiple export/import/delete/move
- Album creation
- Photos can be stored in multiple albums
Photo Lock does have a few limitations due to a few Windows Phone restrictions. While you can import and protect photos from your Pictures Hub, you will have to delete them manually from your Pictures Hub. You can not import videos from your Pictures Hub but there is an in-house video recording feature to let you record and protect new videos.
In just tinkering with Photo Lock for a short period, the app comes across as a smooth, clean looking, easy to navigate app for your Windows Phone. If you're looking for a way to password protect images on your Windows Phone, Photo Lock is worth a try. Remember, the free offer lasts through August 10, 2012 and from there Photo Lock will return to it's regular $.99 price point.
You can find Photo Lock here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.
