We know full well how awful paranoia can be. You’re forever fearful of lending your phone to anyone, or even leaving it alone with someone you don’t really trust.

Well, now you can say goodbye to living in fear, because 1Touch Photo Safe has got you covered!

1Touch Photo Safe is a secure encrypted photo gallery application for protecting your photos. It uses a strong AES-256 bit encryption standard to keep your photos safe and prevent them from being extracted from your phone.

This modern application takes full advantage of iOS 8, and uses the new iOS 8 keychain APIs to allow secure unlocking of 1Touch Photo Safe using Touch ID or your device passcode.


One of the great features of this app is, it allows for importing of photos from a variety of sources including your photo library, directly from the camera, images on the clipboard, image URL’s on the clipboard, over a WiFi network, and from any iOS document provider including iCloud, Dropbox, and Google Drive.

1Touch Photo Safe uses AES-256 symmetric key cryptography to encrypt all photos, with the Cipher-block chaining mode of operation. It has brute-force prevention mechanisms, and uses the open source RNCryptor library for all encryption functions. All user data is completely encrypted, so you don’t have to worry about any hacking or malicious data retrieval.

The best thing about this app is, you don’t need special permissions or a jailbroken device in order to be able to use it. It is a free app, and you can download it directly from iTunes from the link below.
