Back in the day, capturing photos and filming videos was rare. It’s mostly because of the lack of accessibility to gadgets like cameras. Over the years, we have visibly witnessed the growth of technology. Most people now have access to a decent Android mobile with a good-quality camera. This allowed people of all levels to easily capture moments whenever they wanted. In fact, mobile development paved the way for the growth of entertainment channels like social media, games, and apps.
As much as we all love taking photos, at times, we are worried about the safety and security of our personal data, like photos and videos. Not to forget the scams and hacks taking place on the internet every day.
One of the applications that facilitates the safekeeping of personal and private data is the Vault app. This blog focuses on how to get all photos from the Vault app without a password. If you’re ready, let’s get started.
How to Get All Photos from Vault App Without Password?
Let’s get straight to the point. If you’ve forgotten your Vault password, you can’t directly access the content inside your application. Moreover, you’ll have no luck if you’re attempting to crack into someone’s Vault app.
You see, the Vault app is built to keep photos and other digital assets safe from prying eyes. Using the preset password is the only way to access the Vault content; unfortunately, if you have lost it, it means you have lost access to your Vault app data.
However, you have a way out if you accidentally delete the app or the content stored in your Vault app. You can easily recover your Vault app files if you have enabled Vault Cloud or iTunes backup before losing access to the app.
In the upcoming section, we will guide you through the exact steps as to how to restore your Vault app data. We will use backups to recover your Vault app files and data. We have included instructions for Android and iOS users, so feel free to refer to the relevant ones for your device.
For iOS users
If you’re an iPhone user, you have two backup options: iCloud and iTunes. iCloud storage is limited, whereas iTunes doesn’t charge a premium to expand your storage. So, here’s how to use iTunes to recover your Vault app data.
First, we will guide you on how to back up your iPhone data on your personal computer. We have instructed how to connect iPhone and Windows to enable backup, as many users tend to have dilemmas with this procedure.
Step 1: Go to the browser on your computer or laptop in order to proceed.
Step 2: Now head to support.apple.com, where you can download iTunes for Windows.
Step 3: Once you launch iTunes on your desktop, open the application and agree to all the terms and conditions in order to access the app.
Step 4: Now, you need to link your Apple device to your Windows computer using a lightning cable.
Step 5: You need to approve the computer connection from your device. So, unlock your iPhone; you’ll see a pop-up asking whether you can trust the connected device. Tap on the trust option.
Step 6: On your desktop, you can see a phone icon at the top menu of your iTunes tab. Tap on it.
In the first section, you’ll see all your device details, including phone number, device model, and so on. The second section contains details about backups.
Step 7: Under the backups section, you’ll see a computer option to backup all your iPhone data to your computer, including the Vault app data. Tap on it to backup.
Step 8: To initiate a backup, you need to enter your password on the iPhone. As soon as you do that, you can see an icon pop up on your desktop screen, showing your backup progress.
Now that all your data and password are backed up on your computer, restore them from the same tab to bring back your Vault app data.
You can see the Restore Backup option on the left side of your screen under the backups section. You need to tap on it to restore the backup. When you restore the app data, you can see your Vault app content inside your folders.
Backup using iCloud
iPhone users have another option to back up, which is iCloud.
Here’s how you can use it to safeguard your content.
Step 1: Unlock your iPhone and go to the menu tab.
Step 2: Open the settings app to access the iCloud option.
Step 3: Now, in the settings tab, tap your name to go to your profile.
Step 4: From there, you need to tap on the iCloud option.
Step 5: Now scroll down a little bit to find the iCloud backup option. Tap on it to proceed further.
Step 6: Then toggle on the Backup iPhone option to start backing up your content.
Step 7: Further, click on the Backup Now option to store all your data safely.
If you have factory reset your device and set it up all over again from scratch, you can use this iCloud backup option to restore the data, including the Vault app content.
You’ll be asked to choose the relevant backup file to restore data on setting up your device. You need to choose your recent backup, and all your data will be restored. You can relaunch the Vault app to see if you can access your digital files.
There are many third-party tools to recover your lost data; however, as the vault app is encrypted, they might not be relevant. These are only two straightforward ways to recover your vault app content from the iPhone.
Ideally, Android users can use Google to back up their device data. If you have already enabled backup on your Android device, including Vault app data, you can easily recover your lost Vault app content.
Before we proceed further, if you don’t know how to back up Android using Google, here is a step-by-step guide on how to do it.
Step 1: Unlock your Android device and go to the menu tab.
Step 2: There, you need to tap on the settings option to access the backup feature.
Step 3: Use the search bar to find the backup options and tap on them.
Step 4: Enable the backup by Google One option in the backup settings tab by turning on the toggle next to it.
Under that option, you can also see the last backup date and timing. That’s how you enable backup on Android.
