Encrypt A Pic To Keep Your Secret

Encrypt a Pic iPhone App Review.

When you send or receive photos, are you worried about other people than the intended recipients seeing them? Do you call your friends every time you send them a personal photo to make sure they're alone when checking their email? Or when you receive emails with pictures attached from your friends, you avoid downloading them until you get home? Well, it's time to stop the madness. Because now, you can make sure your pictures are only seen by the people you want to. Just download Encrypt A Pic from the AppStore, and keep your pictures as safe as possible.

How it works

Encrypt A Pic makes sure your pictures are only seen by the recipient of your emails. Whatever picture you're looking to encrypt, it is as simple as 1,2,3 to do so. And the result is bullet proof. Or, better said, Photoshop proof. Because no matter what tools and how hard somebody might try to decrypt this photo, there's no chance for them to succeed. And here's why.

Once you download Encrypt A Pic, there's no unnecessary steps to follow to encrypt your picture. All you have to do is take a picture right then and there or pick one from your Photo Library. Pick a 4 digit combination and change the status of your picture from Unlocked to Locked. And boom! Your once clear and beautiful picture is now a combination of mixed, blurred pixels that make it impossible to even try to deduce what picture is hiding behind them. And the only thing that can help you or your friends decrypt the picture is the code you entered when locking it, of course. When your friends receive your picture, all they have to do is download it to their Photo Library, import it in Encrypt A Pic, add the 4 digit code, change the status of the picture from Locked to Unlocked, and that's it. The picture is crystal clear once again.

Not completely free to use

So far, so good. Up to this point, encrypting and decrypting your picture over and over again is as easy as it gets and completely free. But the point of the app is to be able to send these encrypted pictures, along with the code, so that only the recipient of your email can see them, right? Even if downloading the app is free, you'll have to pay to update it so that it lets you save or send your encrypted picture via email. So, as a heads up, although Encrypt A Pic is free to download, it's not so free to use to its full potential.

All things considered, I liked the idea behind Encrypt A Pic. It's easy to use, it's fun, and effective. But I think it would have been more fair to set its price at $0.99 than advertise it as a free app, when basically it doesn't serve its purpose if you don't make that $0.99 upgrade. Especially since it is worth the price.
