The new feature draws attention with its ease of use. Photos added to the Locked Folder cannot be viewed in the gallery later. Locked Folder can be opened using a PIN or fingerprint sensor.
Thanks to this feature, even if you give the phone to someone else, you will not be able to access photos that you do not want to be seen. There will also be options to delete a photo in Locked Folder and move it out of the folder.
Google says this feature will be available on Pixels phones first, but will be available on more Android devices throughout the year.
