Google Photos Locked Folder starts rolling out on Pixel, here’s how it works - 9to5Google
Jun 11, 2021 1 min, 8 secs

Besides astrophotography time lapse, the key addition from June’s Pixel Feature Drop is the Google Photos Locked Folder that was first announced at I/O.

Once live on your device, you’ll get up a “Set up Locked Folder” notification from the Google Photos app.

After confirming with your unlock method (fingerprint, PIN, etc.), you have access to the Locked Folder, which can be opened at any time from the “Library” tab > “Utilities” (at the top) > “Locked Folder” (near the bottom of the list). .

When you transfer existing shots, Google warns how “Items in Locked Folder can’t be (and will stop being) backed up or shared.” As such, if you’ve already uploaded to Google Photos, it will be deleted in the cloud and only exist as a local copy.

Other security features mean that you can’t take screenshots while inside the secure space, while the only two actions you can do with stored content is “Move them out of Locked Folder” or “Permanently delete.” The company also notes how “People you’ve shared your device screen lock with can unlock Locked Folder.”.

Meanwhile, you can save new photos and videos directly to the Locked Folder from the Google Camera app.

The Google Photos Locked Folder for Pixel phones is just beginning to roll out after being announced on Monday
