SAN ANTONIO, Sept. 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Vysk Communications announced its latest endeavor in the smartphone privacy world, the Vysk Private Gallery app. The Vysk Private Gallery app encrypts the photos and videos you want protected on your phone, as well as those you choose to store in the cloud.
With the Vysk Private Gallery app, users can transfer images and videos from their current photo gallery, or take photos using the built-in camera interface, and store them inside an encrypted, password-protected application. Users can organize photos into two separate galleries, each with a unique access PIN. A self-destruct function allows users to completely erase the entire contents of the galleries with the use of a special emergency PIN. Additional functionality includes sharing photos via social media channels, email, AirDrop and text message, without leaving the app.
The Private Gallery app is part of Vysk's new Privacy System. The System uses a combination of hardware and software to provide next-generation privacy and security. The Vysk Privacy Charging Case (EP1) starts with a hardware solution that locks down your front and back cameras with patented shutters that engage at the flick of a switch. Click them closed, and you are protected from someone capturing unauthorized photos or videos of you and your family. The software component includes the Vysk Private Gallery app and the Vysk Private Text app. The Private Text app is set to debut later this month while the photo app is scheduled for release by September 15.
The Vysk apps protect users from hackers by encrypting photos, videos, and text messages on your phone. Also, any data backed up to cloud will be safe because it is transferred as encrypted information, rather than a picture from your standard photo gallery. Even if a user's iCloud account were hacked, a cyber criminal would not be able to access the photos or videos stored within the app.
"The EP1 Privacy System was specifically designed to combat things like photo hacking," said Victor Cocchia, CEO of Vysk Communications. "This isn't just an issue for celebrities anymore. It has become a common tactic for cyber bullying, cyber stalkers, and worse."
The Vysk Gallery app is available for free when you purchase an EP1 Privacy Case. The EP1 case, which also doubles your phone's battery life, retails for $119.99 and is available now in red, blue, gold, and black on Vysk.com
The EP1 Privacy Case is available for iPhone® 5/5S. The Vysk Private Gallery app and Vysk Private Text app will be available for iOS version 7.0 and later.
