There are many priors on this.

The one thing you must do is to backup an unencrypted copy and then place it in your safe. Too many folk encrypt their last and only copy of stuff they can't lose then explode as the decryption fails and they discover that without the key or such system the files are gone.

This is your PC. Why would you let anyone use it?

Although you haven't mentioned whether you're using a computer or mobile, but as you are looking for app to protect your data, it seems you are using mobile.

Considering you're using an android device, there are some good free app which would let you to hide sensitive data like photos and videos. I am quite sure that will serve your purpose well. Once such app is Leo privacy guard, currently it is used by most of the users for this purpose.

Leo sadly was spammed too much, -1 for that.

I can't guess why it was spammed and it does not address issues like StageFright, etc.

No sale.
