    I would think the only way would be to lock the entire handheld...

    I've been trying to find some program like tat too but had no luck..lockin the handheld is too annoying..hate when people wona see your phone and then they go through everything, sms and what not..so far the only option I found was creating another picture folder in the media card and when you take picture move it into there and keeping the regular default picture folder with basic picture u dnt mind anyone seeing

    No this is not an option for blackberrys, you need to lock the entire phone if you want to keep you pics secure.

    What phone is this an option on, because everyone keeps asking about it.

    Putting a password on the device would be the only way, without a third party app, and I haven't seen one to do that.
    Have some "personal" pictures you want to keep personal? :-P
    I worked for Rogers, and saw alllll kinds of personal pictures on peoples phones. They don't seem to think to clear them off before bringing them in for repair, or returning them.

    Other than making a hidden folder I don't know of a way either. Even with the hidden folder, anyone smart enough to know how to explore the media card can find them if they want to......

    Step 1- Set your device shortcut keys to anything other than the camera or media player.
    Step 2- Put your camera icon and your media player icon in their own folder.
    Step 3- Choose to "hide" that folder.

    It is archaic, it isn't secure, and there is no guarantee that someone won't figure out how to "show all," and find your media/pictures anyway, but it is sort of a method for hiding them.

    Other than that, like everyone else said, password protect your entire device.

    That's a couple of steps, but a great idea!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yes This works. I have just locked several folders in my media section also in device section. Folders can only be locked or unlocked via the filelock icon. For free it is awesome. Also don't forget you can create two sub layers of hidden folders by using the explore option. With a lock on them there is no chance of anyone finding them.

    unfortunately theirs not a "Yes to all" feature when it comes to locking and unlocking folders full of images... you have to manually lock/unlock them by saying yes perpetually. Not a bad little app though, here's to hoping for updates!
