    Hi, I’m looking for a privacy app for my iPhone. Is there one? And if there is, which one would you recommend? I’d like to hide my photos, videos, call logs, and even sms from people who go through my phone without asking permission!

    I’d like to know if there is a privacy guard for iPhones? I want an app that can hide all my personal stuff so prying eyes can’t see any of my videos, photos, and even call logs when I’m not around on my phone.

    Guys, I need your suggestions for a privacy app for my iPhone that can hide all my sms, call logs, phones, and videos. It should be simple to use and doesn’t cause any delay on my phone. I’m fed up with people going through my stuff even without my permission!

    I know that Apple is very strict when it comes to applications. This is why I need your help. I’m looking for a privacy guard that will lock my photos, videos, and other stuff on my phone. I’m very strict with privacy, unfortunately, many people just don’t get it, particularly at home.

    Why not just use TouchID or a strong passcode?

    OnePass is an alright app for storing photos and videos, however you can not hide your messages and call logs.

    Yeah, I thought about that but I'm done with pass codes. There was a time when I left my phone and when I came back, it was already disabled since apparently, someone tried to enter the pass codes too many times. Tsk.

    I'd check that one out but it would really be helpful if it will also hide my text messages and call logs. It's not that I have anything to hide, I just don't want people going through things that aren't meant for them. Sadly, it's okay now for many people to go through things without permission!

    It is impossible for an application to hide your text messages and call logs. This is a limitation of iOS that can not be bypassed with an app.

    If you don't want people going through your phone, use a passcode and stop lending it to people.

    A passcode is still the #1 way of doing what you want ... why reinvent the wheel?

    Yeaaaah, I know having a pass code is the solution. I was just hoping there was another way. It would really help if there was an app to hide our sms and call logs. Anyway, thanks for the help you guys. I did some internet research and most of them are suspicious. That's why I'd rather have real people give me suggestions directly.
