Tweens and teens love to express themselves and share the joys of friendship by sharing photos on social apps such as Snapshat, Instagram, and WhatsApp. These types of photos – a slumber party at a friend’s home, a photo of a team win at a soccer game or cross country race – document kids’ lives and strengthen relationships. But as we all know, cell phone cameras can be misused, and a new crop of photo apps are being used to hide photos instead of share them. Apps such as Stealth Cam, Private Ninja Cam, and Top Secret Camera can be used to spy on people and kids store their photos in hidden -photo vaults, such as Calculator%, Keep Safe Private Photo Vault, and Best Secret Folder.
