A Thai developer has released an app that allows users to import photos and videos from their cameras into a secured folder, CNET Asia reports. The Private Locker for Photo & Video is designed to be unnoticeable unless a user actively seeks it out, the report states. If an individual enters an incorrect password on a smartphone, its front-facing camera takes a picture of the user, and any secured data is deleted after five failed attempts to access the locker. Editor’s Note: The breakout session The Mobile Majority: Building Privacy by Design into Mobile Apps will be part of this year’s IAPP Global Privacy Summit in Washington, DC.
