It looks innocent enough, an app for the iPhone that appears to be a calculator app. It even looks and functions like a calculator when you open it up.
However, the truth is that the app is a new type of secret app popular among teenagers. The app is actually a secret storage vault for photos and other files.
The app is actually called Private Photo in the app store, however once installed the icon for the app displays Calculator% and shows an icon for a typical calculator app.
In order to access the secret cache of files one only has to open the app, immediately press the “.” button and then enter their pin number. Obviously, this presents problems for parents who want to keep an eye on their children’s smartphone usage.
There is concern that sexual predators could encourage young people to download and install the app in order to store lewd photos.
