► Stealth Mode
Make Vault icon disappear from your home screen and it can only be found again with the correct password, so no one knows it exists.

► Break-in Alerts
Secretly snaps a picture of any one who attempts to access with a wrong password. Vault captures a photo, the time stamp and PIN code entered by all intruders.


► Q&A:

1. What if I forgot my password?

If you have a security Email set up before, you should be able to see a "Forgot Password" en-trance once you input the wrong password. Tap on the entrance and follow the instructions to reset your password.

If you do not have a security Email but you had backed up your data to cloud space, then the data can be recovered from the cloud by reinstalling Vault app.

2. How do I enter vault in stealth mode?

1. Put Vault back to the phone’s home screen by adding Vault widget, once it appears on home screen, tap on it, and then input your password to enter, or,

2. Download "NQ calculator" in Google Play, open it, and input correct password then tap "=".

3. Why are my photos/videos lost?

Some cleaning or free storage apps may automatically delete Vault’s data folder used to store pictures and videos. So, as a best practice, please do not choose to delete Vault’s data folder and subfolders (mnt/sdcard/SystemAndroid) when you use such apps.

You can also backup your pictures and videos to cloud by using "Cloud Backup" feature in the premium page of Vault.

This app worked great for yrs but now the latest update wiped out all my pics/videos..when I tried to do cloud backup,it doesn't recognize me as a premium member and says I e exceeded my 1gb of space..I'm a premium member and I'm suppose to have 10gb..I have my Google receipts but have no way of contacting anyone..neither the email or website work..ive had this problem for over a month and just got charged again for premium service

Had the premium version and let it expire, got a new phone and purchased the premium version again using the same email but keeo getting my account was suspended and check back in 24 hours. Well 3 weeks later and multiple unanswered emails to support i still can't restore. When it worked a year or so ago it was good. EDIT because you can't respond to a reply to a review: I have emailed support 4 times since reactivation but this is the only response I have received from them.

I figured out how to get your pictures back even if it tells you to retry after 24 hours. You have to go where it says to restore pictures. Once it says no click the link and down that version. Google doesn't allow this version because it breaches certain issues so you have to download the potentially dangerous version. Once you do you have access to all your stuff.

I have been using this app for years now. I have Android 10 and I can't open up a lot of my pictures. Please fix this . I don't know what the problem is I've even tried downloading the old version and it still won't even open up the pictures. Please fix this because I love this app.

Been using this app for over a year already. Didn't have any issues. But I updated yesterday and now the pics and videos I stored there have disappeared. I will never use this app again for storing my files.

Dont use cloud storage. Pics won't reload. Keeps stopping at 95 percent. Im going to try a few more times then delete this POS app. They keep spamming me to upgrade with ads every 15 seconds. Why would I upgrade if you can't return my pics.. Good riddance.

5 ★, by Peace Montgomery on 2020-11-07
I've been having logging in issues and backing up to the cloud issues. I've attempted to reach out at least 3 times with zero response. Did everyone just close up shop???? Does the app still operate???

I have the premium membership. It was working okay until I got a new phone. It will not allow you transfer your membership. You have to pay again for premium membership. I have sent several emails asking for assistance, no one has yet to respond. I am at risk of losing everything I have in this app.

What is an APK file?

An APK file is an app created for Android, Google's mobile operating system. Some apps come pre-installed on Android devices, while other apps can be downloaded from Google Play, or site like . Apps downloaded from Google Play are automatically installed on your device, while those downloaded from other sources must be installed manually.

If I install an APK from this website, will I be able to update the app from the Play Store?

Yes, absolutely. As soon as the Play Store finds a version of the app newer than the one you've installed, it will commence an update.

What measures do you take to make sure all APKs are real?

Whenever someone wants to download an APK file from this site, we'll check the corresponding APK file on Google Play and allow user download it directly (of course, we'll cache it on our server). If the APK file does not exist on Google Play, we'll search it in our cache.

Why can't I press the Install button? It's grayed out on my Android device!

Disable any screen-dimming apps, like Lux or Twilight. For security reasons, Android will gray out the Install button when an app like that is active.
