Limit Your Android Phone Gallery for Friends Who Snoop

Photo sharing has changed drastically in the past few years and we can now instantly share them with friends and family easily and comfortably. However, there are times when a friend of yours cannot wait for you to share the photo on a social network, or let’s say, you are in a group where someone wants to have a look at the photo you just snapped on your phone. The only option we have then is to pass over the phone to the friend and let him take a look at the photos.

However, the problem is, most of the people don’t stop swiping when they are supposed to and continue snooping through your private photos you have in the gallery. We have seen a few apps on how you can limit the photos that can be viewed by your friends and they work.

But today, I am going to share a new app which not only protects your privacy but also trolls friends who are a bit too eager to know what’s in your gallery.

Ninja Snap for Android

The name of the app is Ninja Snap and you can install it from the Play Store. It’s a free app with no in-app purchases, at least for the time being. Before you open the app, let me explain you how the app works. In the app, you select a few photos which you want to share with your friends and hand them over. If the person continues to swipe through the photos, the app will take selfies of the person viewing the photos and display it in real time.

What’s exciting is, you can add Kanye’s image just to spice things up. The images will appear on the selfies and there are a lot of Kanye pictures to troll your friends.

Using the app is pretty simple. On the first screen, you will get the options like infinite Gallery which will continue to take selfie of the person until he stops snooping around. The next one will add the images of Kanye to the selfies. Always make sure you choose the option to kill the app when the back button is pressed so that the user cannot go back to the photo selection screen.

The app needs a minimum of two photos to be selected before it can create a limited gallery. Long tap on the photos to select them and then tap the message icon. An entire folder or an album can also be selected at a given time. That’s pretty much about it.

Guest Mode: If you are on Android Lollipop, you can make use of the Guest Mode and Screen Pinning feature to lock the app and avoid friends snooping elsewhere.

Additional Security

If you really want to take things seriously, I would advise you to use apps like Droid Protector to lock the images using which your galley can be accessed. You an also include Ninja Snap to the list and make the photos in your device completely secure.

So that was pretty much about the app. It can be used for security purpose or as a silly trick on your friends. Completely your call, but do share with us some of your selfies as Kanye.
