    I sometimes use my phone to take pictures that are adult oriented and I rather not have my kids come across them when they play on my phone or iPad. Is there anyway to set up a folder to be password protected so only I can access them? Seeing that everything is synced, they goto my iPad and Mac Mini too.

    No, not that I know of. One way you could accomplish a similar thing is to use Dropbox as a photo album, if for nothing else. You can password-protect the app and set it up on all of your devices.

    Download Keep Safe, it's a password protector photo app, it'll grab whatever photo's you want and save them in the app, so you can delete them from your photo album and photo stream.

    Download an app called "Private photo vault" - there's a free and paid version. Works perfectly.

    If you use the free version you can store videos in the vault but you can't watch them, you have to save them to camera roll and delete them afterwards.

    Thanks for the info! I knew I couldn't be the only one that wants to limit who can view some photos! :)

    I use the"keepSafe" app for free. Unlimited amount of pictures. I think that's the easiest way to go.

    Like SWC states, you should use one of the numerous apps in the iTunes store. The wife and I use different apps ourselves, but we have them. I use Picture Safe.
    However, make sure you pay attention to if the app does pictures AND videos or just one of them. Mine only does pictures, not video.

    I don't have kids, it's worked out pretty well for me.
