    Is there a free app out there that will let me password protect a certain folder or file??

    Yould could always create a folder on your SD card called .systemlog or something and move all your porn into that? It'd still be visible in Astro if you told it to show hidden folders, but it would keep it out of your gallery.

    I dont particularly want it hiding, just password protected to stop prying eyes in case I lose my phone!


    ps. I prefer my pr0n on a bigger screen!!!! ;)

    In that case why not just password protect the whole phone? It's a default feature :)

    MyStash is a virtual container with a password.
    Does protect any kind of files and is very easy to use.

    I used to use one called G.P. Free, but there was a recent update that screwed it up.

    Now it's sort of stuck in limbo in the App market screen in the downloads tab - It's marked as 'downloaded', but when you open it you only get the option to 'install', and it doesn't install, so now I can't get rid of it!

    Wouldn't recommend! :cool:

    Vaulty is free and hides selected photos and videos from your gallery with optional password protect.

    Keep safe lets you "Share" files which you need a password to enter it, not viewable via file managers either due to the .nomedia it places there.
