What’s New

Version 13.2

Thanks for using Private Photo Vault! We have been working hard to create a new update to make sure you always have the best app for securing your photos.

In v13.2, we have completely redone the User Interface, User Experience, and have added new features.

New Features:

+ Favorites
+ Up to 8 digit passcodes to login to the app

+ Cloud Vault (Premium)
   + Encrypted Backup
+ 100% Private (just like the app has always been) - Private Photo Vault employees CAN NOT view your photos and videos in the app on your phone or in Cloud Vault Backups. For a complete description on how Cloud Vault encryption works, scroll to the bottom.
   + Sync photos and videos between multiple devices
   + Space Saver - leave files in Cloud Vault and download them on demand
+ Trash (Premium)
   + Recover recently deleted files
+ Face Down Lock (Premium)
   + Feature to switch to a different app when the device is turned over
+ Dark Mode (Pro/Premium)
   + Professionally designed dark mode

New Design:

+ Brand new modern design
+ Simplified method for adding new files to the app
+ New easier onboarding process for new users
+ Swipe down to dismiss images
+ Improved animations

Other improvements/changes:

+ Performance improvements
+ Photo Gallery has significantly improved performance when swiping between photos
+ The iTunes album no longer exists as an album you can move photos/videos to/from. Now, you can choose to export files to iTunes and import from there.
+ Bugfixes

How Cloud Vault Encryption works:

+ When you enable Cloud Vault backup in the app, you are required to provide a Cloud Vault Password. Your Cloud Vault Password is never backed up to our servers and is used as a secret value that only you know to encrypt/decrypt your files. This means we have NO ability to view your photos. This also means that if you forget your Cloud Vault Password, you will also not be able to view your Cloud Vault data. Please write it down.

New Offering:

We are announcing a new Premium offering with this update. If you have already purchased the Pro version of the app, you will always be able to continue using the features you paid for, for free. However, if you want to try any of the new features including Cloud Vault backup and syncing, you will need to try our new upgrade. All existing Pro customers users will be given 3 months of Premium as a thank you for supporting the app.

Super App. Kann ich bestens empfehlen.

Ich fühl mich betrogen

Als ich Eure App, damals noch als ihr ein Startup wart, als Vollversion lebenslang (!) kaufte, war ich begeistert. Nun über Nacht ist die App auf meinem iPhone XR einfach verschwunden und damit auch sämtliche darin befindlichen Daten. Also nochmal runterladen und siehe da, eine Wiederherstellung meiner auf Lebenszeit gekaufter App ist nicht mehr möglich. Dafür soll ich nun ein Abo buchen …..

So, entweder ihr kommt zu einer Lösung, oder wir sehen uns vor Gericht wieder. Denn so geht man nicht mit Kunden um.
When I bought your app as a full version for life (!) when you were a startup, I was thrilled. Now overnight the app on my iPhone XR has simply disappeared and with it all the data in it. So download it again and lo and behold, it is no longer possible to restore the app that I bought for life. I should now book a subscription for this ...

So either you come to a solution or we'll see you again in court. Because that's not how you treat customers.
