Storage of data
Privary uses a persistent storage mechanism (Android only, iOS doesn't support that). The persistent mechanism ensures that you can uninstall and reinstall Privary whenever you like without files being deleted.
Android: Your files persist. Reinstall Privary any time to login and view your Vault.
Sure. Just ensure that you don't delete any file that is stored under the path
Mind: Cleaning tools are not intelligent. You may delete important files if you don't carefully check what will be deleted during a clean up.
Think carefully about what you last did on your device because files cannot automatically disappear.
- Phone reset?
- Cleaning tool used?
- Removed or resetted the sd-card?
- Removed or renamed a folder on your phone?
Privary protects your files and cannot delete anything without you giving the instruction. A file cannot disappear automatically
Mind: Due to the persistent storage method of Privary, all data is preserved even after uninstallation. Files cannot delete themselves automatically.
Start Privary and press on the Privary Logo at the top. Select the option search for files from the bottom and Privary will scan for all associated files and reimport them automatically.
Mind: This works only if the files have not been deleted manually or with cleaning tools. It's useful if you have moved the data folder
.privaryfrom it's original location accidentially.
You have a backup of the data folder

Place the folder
.privaryon your phone storage. Directly on the root - not inside a folder. Overwrite if required.
The backup is now recovered. Login to view the content. If you don't see anything after login, ensure that you have placed the data folder
.privaryin the right location and log in into the Main
Final path: Storage/.privary
