Recent news about a showbiz personality who has three calculator apps on her smartphone is currently trending on social media.

At first, we didn’t know what the calculator fuss was all about, not until we read and researched what the joke was.

Apple also removed other imitations of the app such as Calculator App Lock and Piano Pass. As for Android users, Calculator+ and Calculator Vault are still available for download.


Aside from the versions above, there are still plenty of photo-hiding apps that you can download on your phone for free. In case you have sensitive material you don’t want to share with anyone (or maybe you’re just secretive AF), we found three of the most-rated apps below:

KeepSafe Photo Vault

Available on iOs and Android

KeepSafe Photo Vault is one of the most downloaded apps on both the Apple App Store and Google Play. You have the option to secure the app with a PIN, pattern, or fingerprint lock. You can also make several folders inside, share them with other KeepSafe users, and back up the files to your online drive. There are also bonus features such as break-in alerts (the app will take a selfie of the person trying to enter with incorrect PIN) and customized passwords for individual albums—but for an additional payment.

One of Gallery Vault’s best features is that you can hide its icon from your phone’s menu, so no one knows the existence of the app except you. It’s also integrated with Private Web Browser so you can download all images and videos stored inside the app, in a web page, with just one tap.


Available on iOs and Android

Aside from hiding your photos and videos, Vault can also hide your text messages and call logs. Moreover, the app has a private browser feature—feel free to surf the internet without leaving any trace behind.
