How To Protect Your Android Photo Gallery When Showing Images On Your Phone?

Want to show a photo to your friend but hide the other images? Then turn on the alarm against the curious with the Focus Photo Sharing app, which promises to protect the Android gallery. Even with messengers like WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, showing a photo personally on your cell phone, to friends or relatives, can be a problem. That’s because the entire gallery is exposed for those who handle the device.

If the person tries to access your gallery, you are asked for a password: if you insist, an alarm will be activated. Check out this tutorial and keep your personal photos private.
