Google Photos Locked Folder option starts arriving for more Android phones

Google


San Francisco, Dec 4 : Search engine giant Google has reportedly started rolling out Locked Folder feature in Photos for non-Pixel users. Google in September announced that the feature would be rolling out to more Android phones soon and now it has started to show up on some Samsung and OnePlus devices, reports Android Central. The feature was released exclusively on newer Pixel phones in June. Once the feature is live, users will be able to set up this folder after they receive a notification from Google Photos. Google Photos Locked Folder hides selected pictures/videos from the application's main grid, search, and "apps that access your device photos." Additionally, these photos will not be backed up or shared and require a device screen lock to access. Even users will not be allowed to take screenshots when they are inside a secure space. "With Locked Folder in @googlephotos, 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," the firm said in a tweet earlier. One can set up a Locked Folder by going to Library > Utilities > Locked Folder in the Google Photos app. /IANS
