There is nothing we can do about those massive hackers or Facebook selling your data to advertisers who then bombard you with ads. But you can protect your personal data. This means your financial information, private photos etc.


One such application is the Vault-Hide App. It can protect everything from SMSes to photos and videos from prying eyes. Let’s face it not everything on your phone is meant to be shared with the whole world.

So you hid something on your phone via vault app and now want to unhide it. Don’t worry we will help you out.
