Teens Using Secret Mobile Apps To Hide Texts, Photos From Parents

| by Brendan Kelly

Kids are fooling their parents by hiding pictures and texts in a secret mobile app disguised as a calculator. 

The app, called Calculator%, looks nearly identical to a standard calculator application icon on a cell phone. When you type in the correct password, however, an app opens that holds hidden pictures and files that won’t show up anywhere else on the phone.

Congress just passed a drug testing law that has a lot of people outraged. Do you think this is wrong?

The app gained attention after a concerned parent, named Casey, made it the subject of a now-viral video.

Calculator% is available under a number of different titles and iterations for iPhone and Android smart phones, and are filed in the iTunes and Google Play stores under photo vaults.
