Yovo: Photo Sharing App Which Prevents Screenshots of Your Photos

Privacy is a major concern today. Following the slew of celebrity hacks and password leaks, people have started doubting the safety of social sharing. Especially with photographs that can be stolen by unscrupulous hackers and posted on the internet, it is necessary to keep them safe from unrecognized eyes. Yovo, a Photo sharing App, tries to address that.

Yovo is developed by privacy software company called ContentGuard. The app utilizes Barrier Grid optical illusion to keep your photos secure. The app restricts the ability for people to gain the image using screenshots. When somebody opens the photo message the grille moves and allows them to see the picture. If the receiver attempts to take a screenshot, it will result in an image with blurred sections.


The app can come handy for people who are sending personal or even restricted content through photos and had previously used other apps, such as Snapchat. Now that even Snapchat has been compromised, this is probably a good time for Yovo to come as a good alternative to the service.

Yovo also allows you to selectively blur images from your phone before sending them. There is also a self-destruct timer which can be set for 1 second to 24 hours. It truly protects your content, including your messages.

If it succeeds in providing what its promising, Yovo can actually gain a huge following. Snapchat is claiming that the third party apps were responsible for the leak. Hopefully, Yovo has a better hang of things than the hugely popular service. The app is available on the App store. So give it a try and if you like it, ask the developers to come with an Android version soon.
