    are there any apps around to lock folders? say you've got some sensitive data(or photos) you dont' want viewed without a password.

    Anything to that effect in the Market?

    If you have pictures you wanna hide, install Astro File Manager and change the extension. They won't show up in the gallery till you change it back.

    That's about the only way I know of doing it.

    Sorry, it does appear that there are a few apps out there:

    Photovault

    App Protector (to password protect your photo gallery app)

    Photovault looks nice. The other one looks annoying. I don't want to have to enter a password every time I want to go into settings or my pictures. I just want to segregate a few photo's and have them inaccessible without a password. Looks like Photovault will do the trick though.

    Thanks :)

    Any more variations would be great.

    You can also create an empty file called .nomedia and copy that to the folder where you store your dirty pictures; that way the album application won't index them -- of course this is not "secure" but it should prevent accidental exposure. :)
