Wow, that is a LONG app name!
I’ll just say it once more and then we’ll shorten it.
Media Safe – KYMS – Keep Your Media Safe (and secret) by IdeaSolutions S.r.l is that secret door in your device that looks like a regular wall.
It comes in disguise as a common calculator app, but in reality it holds pictures and videos that you, for some reason, prefer to keep in secret.
Are you already thinking about uses for it? Good. ‘Cause it’s free for a limited time, and you should grab it. You never know.
Here is how it works:
You set a password (4 digits) and confirm it. You’re not going to use “8008″, are you?
After that, all you have to do is insert it and then tap the “=”. For example, if your password is – say, a random number – 8008, you’ll enter “8008=” and you’ll be given access to your hidden pics and videos, that can be inserted from various sources (image above).
You can even improve the security by adding a second password.
If someone approaches you, there is a quick and easy way to return to the calculator view. Just put your hand on the screen and it will be business as usual.
How’s that for a panic button?
I know what you are thinking. The answer is “yes, the calculator works just fine”.
Media Safe is free at the moment and is universal, but won’t be (free) for much longer. Get it!
Today we’re talking about security.
We are usually so flooded with social network sites, email, forums, net banking, games, IMs, job intranets… you name it. All of those need a password. Also, there are the “real life” ones. Bank cards, retail stores cards, phone password, PINs, security codes… and you need to have all of those memorized. It’s insane, and you may choose to set it all with the same password, which is even more insane, or you can have a little help.
Securely™ Password Vault by Dapper Gentlemen comes to the rescue with this fine app, that will store your passwords/numbers/secret information and sync it in the iCloud.
One app for iPhone, another for iPad, both free for a limited time.
The idea is simple. You insert all your information into the app, and lock it down with a single PIN code, so whenever you need to retrieve it, that’s the only PIN you’ll have to remember. I have been using another app to do this, but I’m switching to Securely, because (mainly) of the iCloud sync. Never lose your data, no matter what.
This kind of app is growing stronger by the minute, as our daily routine keeps piling up with authentication windows, and electronic devices that won’t let you in unless you say the magic combination of characters.
So you should grab the opportunity and install this one, while it’s free.
