We take a lot of photos using our smartphones and these photos might be our personal ones and we do not wish to show these photos to others. Similarly, we also have a lot of confidential documents as we are using our smartphones for work purposes as well. So in order to protect these personal or confidential files, OnePlus’s Oxygen OS 12 features Private Safe. Private Safe in OnePlus OxygenOS 12 allows users to store their personal photos and videos securely and safely using a password or fingerprint. Let’s see how to use this feature.

If you are using it for the first time you will need to set up a pin, you can also use your existing fingerprint for added protection.
