Question about Nokia N79 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Privacy Settings???? Hi guys, I have recently purchased a Nokia N79 but I would like to protect images and videos from other people if they were to pick up my phone or if my phone was to be stolen. There does not seem to be anything on the phone which would allow me to do this individually e.g one image file not all of them. I thought that this would be a very basic setting as my old phone (smasung g800) had one. All i want is a privacy password lock. I do not really want to pay for an additional download when I have already paid so much for the phone. Am i missing any setting on the N79 which offers this?? Do you know of a possible free solution if there is not. Any help would be much appreciated.

There is none. However, you can lock the memory card. BUT, this will be a nuisance as all data from the card will have to be accessed by giving the password. Also you will have to remember it. There are n number of probs posed by people on this site who have forgotten their passwd and cant use their mobiles. Choice is yours.

Can we have any application for particular folder lock like that gallery, images and video for nokia n73 music edotion

I used LEO Privacy to lock privacy app, like messages, facebook, whatsapp so that no one can open my app and see the content. Also home mode like the folder lock would give more privacy to the app itself. Super cool to protect your phone. LEO Privacy Applock Boost Hide Android Apps on Google Play
