private photo vault?

I was just using dp's ipad and accidentally clicked on his emails instead of Safari. There was an email from Private Photo Vault saying it hoped his experience of it was going well. Feel a bit sick. Any ideas what it is? Thanks

It's an app that keeps certain photos private.

It keeps photos private so no-one will see them without a pass key

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:12:05

Great. Surely that can only mean one thing then. What do I do?

CatKisser Sun 23-Nov-14 18:13:42

You ask him. His reaction will tell you everything.

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:15:29

I will ask him but I'm sure he will have an answer. He'll probably get annoyed. If he denies then what do I do then?

DollStar Sun 23-Nov-14 18:15:39

You cannot do anything without a pass key

Deny what? You have the email?

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:17:14

Deny that he is using it and that it's an email everyone gets.

Yeah, my DP had one of those apps. I eventually found out it was full of porn pics and photos of the girls he works with, all mixed together. Hope your DP is putting it to better use than mine was!

Well you have access to the iPad so check if he is using it?

Is it typical that you would trust what he says OP?

nozzz Sun 23-Nov-14 18:20:54

*wouldn't trust what he says

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:20:58

Sassy sorry to hear that. Have you split up now? It can only be dodgy surely. We don't have much of a sex life at the moment.

If it's an email that everyone gets, then why didn't you receive one? Or me?

Fake it; tell him you know full well that you can only receive an email from them if you've opened an account and that if he has nothing to hide, then he can show you what's on there.

I have one of these. It's picture of Christmas pressies I have bought. Easier than keeping lists

FelicityGubbins Sun 23-Nov-14 18:23:21

I just looked at the site and it has a decoy password option so if someone gets you to put in your password then it shows a completely different set of pictures hmm nice eh! It also takes a picture of whoever is trying to access the app without the passcode..

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:23:31

Nozzz how would I check if he is using it. All his emails are cleared but he always does that anyway. Has done for years. Yes I would normally trust him but he's hardly going to admit anything as he knows it would be the end. Shit. I feel sick.

Karmaone Sun 23-Nov-14 18:24:39

Felicity OMG that's awful.

CatKisser Sun 23-Nov-14 18:25:02

Felicity, that is horrific. angry
In other word, it's an app for wankers.

Thebluedog Sun 23-Nov-14 18:25:02

It's a place where you can keep photos, videos and notes safe. You can't access it without a password.

I have it for keeping bank details and passwords safe in my iPad and iPhone. They don't sync so if you delete it, the app and its contents can't be reinstalled as the contents aren't backed up when the phone or iPad are synced

VanitasVanitatum Sun 23-Nov-14 18:25:25

Ask him to show you the photos on the app.

CatKisser Sun 23-Nov-14 18:25:56

Bluedog - just saw your post. Sorry, my comment may have been unfair. Just so annoyed at the decoy password option. Just seems so deceptive and wrong!

DollStar Sun 23-Nov-14 18:27:32

Email them from his account to get the password?

FelicityGubbins Sun 23-Nov-14 18:27:44

It also takes pics direct to the app so they don't show on the camera roll
I would try to hack it but have "caught you twat" on a piece of paper so it takes a photo of that instead of your face as you hack his account...

Oh shit. Just before Xmas. Oh crap.
