    Just made the switch from iPhone to the Galaxy... ok I like this phone, HOWEVER I just added a locker to my phone, which works great with it patteren lock, but my photos still seem accessible with just a pull of the settings... right after taking a capture screen. Is there any way to turn ALL MY PHOTOS private? HELP

    Also I am aware the phone itself has a lock screen, but I don't like using it AND the locker together, just becomes to complicated to open,

    PLEASE ADVISE!!:eek::eek::eek:

    The phone itself has a pattern lock/ pin lock etc that does not have this security hole. Use the provided functionality instead of using 3rd party and your problem will be gone.

    Ok I'm now using the screen lock from within the phone itself. when I take a screen shot while the phone is locked, it STILL allows me to pull down the notification menu, accessing the captured photos and other photos as well....:thinking::thinking:

    Update, disregard.. it works. guess I'll have to use the phone's built in app
