Smartphones have become a vault for highly personal information. We all get that uncomfortable feeling when someone else is using your phone. Something embarrassing or confidential is just a few errant swipes away.

Lock screen security is a good way to prevent someone from getting on your phone, but what if they’re already past the lock screen? We’ve created three new guides to help you lock down personal photos, messages, and apps.

Each one of these guides will take you through the steps to hide your private stuff. We’ll show you how to use your phones’ built-in tools to get the job done, but if that doesn’t work we have a bunch of great app recommendations. If you take privacy seriously, these guides will make your phone feel much more secure.

Do you worry about your sensitive photos and private information falling into the wrong hands? What tips have you used to make the contents of your phone more secure?
