Google announces a new Locked Folder for your personal photos

Google I/O is well underway and we are seeing some amazing technology advances, a new feature that Google has announced is the ability for users to use a new Locked Folder in google photos. With Locked Folders you can add photos to a passcode protected space and they won’t show up as you scroll through Photos or other apps on your phone. Locked Folder is launching first on Google Pixel, and more Android devices throughout the year.


With this built in to the photos folder users will no longer have to download a third-party app giving them more security and peace of mind.
