NQ Mobile Vault

The Good Premium features like SecureCam and Break-in Monitor make NQ Mobile Vault one of the cooler iPhone security apps on the market.

The Bad Workflow is not as smooth as it should be. You can't add texts or call history items to Vault.

The Bottom Line While it does boast some nifty premium features, NQ Mobile Vault still needs a few more tools in order to be considered a must-have app.

NQ Mobile Vault

Essentially, Vault creates an encrypted, password-protected space on your device, in which you can store photos and videos for safe-keeping. You can move items into and out of the space in a snap, or just as easily permanently delete them. Extra premium features are also available for $1.99.

To get started, you must first create your Vault password. Make sure it's something you'll remember, as you'll have to delete the app and everything inside your Vault if you forget it. Once you're all set up, hit the + button on the top right to get started adding photos and videos to your Vault for safekeeping. While hiding photos and videos on your iPhone is simple enough, it's a shame you can't also add text messages or call history items to your Vault, the way you can with the Android version of the app. Vault for Android also has a convenient Private Contacts feature that the iPhone version is missing.

After adding items to your Vault, you must then manually remove them from your device's gallery. If you don't, these items will still be viewable by anyone. This workflow on the iPhone seems like a hassle, considering the Android version purges your Gallery for you. Fortunately, the iPhone app does tell you when items in your Vault are still viewable in your Gallery, which helps a bit.
