0 How to access Gallery Lock Hidden Files

You may have come across a situation where you are not being able to access your long-saved or hidden photos in your Gallery lock app. If your Gallery app is crashing or you have forgotten the password or a security question, you can use following options to recover your photos and files.

People often hide their photos for some or other reasons, may be they are too personal or they don't want anyone else to see them. Mostly we prefer a smart Gallery app to lock those photos and files. But what if you have forgotten the password and security question or the app itself is not working properly. Don't worry, we do have a solution here.

This article will guide you to copy those hidden files anywhere you want so as to stay assured for your long-saved memories. 

Method 1 

Using Android's Folder system and copying files

Files locked through Gallery Lock app are stored in a specific directory in phone's memory. They get a .glk extension through the app. Just copy them all and copy to a secured location such as computer desktop or another folder in a smartphone. You may later rename their extension to the .jpeg to access them all perfectly. While location .glk files through desktop USB connection to the device you may need to enable 'Show hidden files, folders or drives' option through Control panel's folder option.
