Yovo: Share Your Pictures Secretly

By on October 15, 2014

There are so many amazing and strange apps and games available on Google Play Store and Apple App Store aka iTunes. If you have enough courage to install different apps and test them on your Android or iOS devices then you probably have heard the name “Snapchat”. This beautifully designed app allows you to share your picture with other people for a limited time. After a certain time interval, that picture gets deleted from receiver phone and Snapchat server.

Before you press “share” button, you can set number of seconds you want to display that picture to the receiver. Unfortunately, this is not an ultimate solution of privacy because all Android and iOS devices allow users to take screenshot with shortcut (you can take screenshot on Android devices by pressing power button and volume down key at the same time, an you can take screenshot on iOS devices  by pressing power button and home button at the same time).


You can take screenshot on these devices regardless of what is running on the device, it means you can take screenshots of videos, apps and games. This feature in Android and iOS devices actually reduces Snapchat efficiency drastically. Later, Snapchat included a feature which notifies the sender that receiver has taken screenshot. Recently another app is launched for iOS devices which solve this issue.

Yovo is a newly released app which has same functionality like Snapchat but receivers cannot take screenshot of the pictures sent to them. Actually Yovo cannot stop people to take screenshots because this is a native feature in Android and iOS devices. But Yovo scramble those images in a smart manner. Amazing fact is, Snapchat is only the only app and service with this amazing feature but there are many other apps that allow users to share their pictures with other people for limited time period.  But none of those apps actually solve this screenshot issue.

By default, you can share your picture via plenty of options like Yovo, Facebook and Twitter. If you want to share your picture for a limited time period then simply turn on the “D-fence” mode which is pretty amazing. This feature put moving fence on the picture and you can also adjust the level of blur on the fence. When you send your picture with “D-fence” mode enable to anyone via any channel then the receiver sees that picture with moving flickers but when the receiver tries to take screenshot, he/she will get blurred screenshot because of moving flickers.

The story behind development of Yovo is pretty awesome; one of the Yovo app’s developers was driving in his car and he saw fence with flickers because if you are a driving near a fence then you can see what is behind that fence but when you stop, you cannot actually see the full view. And later his observation resulted in Yovo. Company is going to release Yovo app for Android and other mobile operating systems in upcoming weeks.
