Don’t Let Your Friends Scroll Your Camera With This Android App

Android: you open a photo and give your phone to a friend for them to see. Before you notice it, they go through your entire camera roll and go through any screenshots, nude images, or other awkward images you’ve saved there. We have all been in this situation (and, probably, we are all to blame for flipping through photos of friends). Now there is a solution, at least if you are using Android .

Secure Photo Viewer , a free Android app available now, makes it easy to link your phone to a specific photo or group of photos so you can safely share it with a friend knowing they’ll only see what you want.

How to use Secure Photo Viewer

Before getting started, make sure your device is configured with some kind of secure login. This could be a fingerprint reader, passcode, or lock screen pattern. Then download the app from Google Play .

Once set up, the next time you want to show someone an image or multiple images on your phone, open your photo app and select those images. Then click the Share button and select Secure Photo Viewer from the list of options. Finally, press the physical lock button on your phone. The images you choose will appear, but your friend won’t be able to look at anything else until you unlock the device.

That’s all. Now you can hand your smartphone to a friend without worrying about what else he might see. But maybe be prepared to explain to them why you felt the need to add that extra layer of security, as they’ll likely feel like you don’t trust them, have a ton of X-rated content on your phone, or both.
