Will a Storage Cleaner Delete My Vault?

Yes, they can. Please avoid using any storage cleaning apps like Clean Master, unless you’re using automatic back-up. We won’t be able to retrieve your files, if a cleaning app deletes them.

What If I Forget My Password?

Use your security question to set a new password. If you’ve forgotten your security question, you can try contacting our support.

We suggest that you create a strong and easy to remember security question and password. There are multiple guides online for this. The general rules are to not set a question you’d answer online or a question that could be easily guessed (e.g. What’s your favourite color? What’s your favorite month?) Here are samples of decent security questions. Please don’t use these, use them to make your own questions and answers more secure:

  • Where were you when you had your first kiss?
  • Where were you New Year’s 2003?
  • Who was your childhood hero?
  • What was the name of your second dog, cat or hamster?

Can Anyone Else See My Private Files?

No, we’ve put a lot of thought in making them impossible to find for both people and applications without a password. Vaulty modifies your files, so only it can view them. When your files are backed up, they remain encrypted and are uploaded securely to your Google Drive.

Is Vaulty Safe?

Yes, Vaulty uses several advanced layers of security to protect your private media. Files are moved to a location, that the gallery cannot view, and are modified, so that they can’t be viewed without changing the file back. Vaulty’s protection offers the perfect balance between privacy, security and speed.
