Introducing the most transparent and secure photo vault app in the App Store: Secure, lock, and hide your pictures and videos with Encamera!
Most Photo Vault apps that require access to your entire Camera Roll and store your private media on their servers. Encamera puts you back in control of your most personal media.
Encamera is an encrypted camera. It takes photos and video, immediately encrypting them so that they stay for your eyes only. Capture, store, and view your encrypted album securely on your device or iCloud, without uploading to someone else's cloud. No ads, no data collection, and no email address required.
Encamera’s Core is now OPEN SOURCE!
In the interest of transparency, we have open sourced the core functionality of the app, which does the encryption, file storage, and key storage. You can view the code here: https://github.com/akfreas/EncameraCore

Ratings and Reviews
Actually encrypted and transparent
This app allows me to store my personal photos right to my iCloud Drive or locally on my phone. I love how there’s no weird 3rd party cloud solution and that I can manage where my data goes. It’s the only one I’ve found that’s doing this and in a transparent way.
Thanks for making such a privacy, secure camera!
I was really looking for something that had true local encryption, and without tracking. This app is great for that. I can store everything securely on my phone now, and out of my camera roll 🥳
Love the concept
Being able to take private photos right from the Lock Screen is genius
