Google Photos is enhancing user privacy by extending its Locked Folder feature, previously exclusive to Android, across all devices, ensuring safeguarded photos and videos remain hidden from the photo grid and other apps.
Now, users have the privilege of backing up their Locked Folder. This enhancement ensures that irrespective of the device you’re on, access to those treasured or sensitive visuals remains uninterrupted, provided you have the passcode. The cherry on top? iOS aficionados aren’t left out. Google Photos is facilitating the setup and access of Locked Folder for iOS devices and, for those who prefer bigger screens, it’s accessible via the web too.
Adding another feather to its cap, Google Photos has unveiled a revamped settings page for both Android and iOS platforms. As for the much-anticipated backup and iOS support for Locked Folder? It’s being ushered in as we speak.
With the digital landscape constantly evolving, Google Photos’ latest move is a testament to its commitment to user privacy and seamless experience. By extending Locked Folder access and backup across platforms, it’s ensuring that users’ memories and sensitive content remain just that – personal and protected.
