I cannot get the protected feature to work. From the app and the description on the website it is not clear what should happen /be done.
I set a password in settings on the protected location and I that seems to work. It warned me that there was a .nomedia file present which I should delete using a file manager, which I did (It was just above the protected folder in Fstopmediagallery). I then tried to find a way within Fstop to move a file to the protected folder. Eventually I used a file manager and put the file there. The file did not show up when I selected ‘protected’ and gave the password – the display was empty!
I made Fstopmediagallery one of the accessible folders and the protected file appeared in the normal list of folders with my file showing – unprotected!
How is one supposed to get a file into the protected folder and then be able to view it in Fstop only when you enter the password.

Found the answer! You HAVE to put a sub-folder in the protected folder before it will work! All now works.

To protect an image, start selection mode by long pressing a thumbnail, select the images you want to protect and select “Protect media” from the menu. I don’t understand the subfolder in the protected folder answer. Is this working for you?

Please open Settings->Main
Then click on Password under “protected folders”. You should get “Input old password” box. Now tap on “OK” 10 times. Your password should be reset now, and when you enter “protected folders” you will be able to set your password.

It would be great if we could move whole folders inside fstop protected directory and it would automatically detect the files and rename import them (rename to .ipi). This way, I must upload a folder to my phone, then open the folder and protect all images by selecting them. I then need to remove the empty folder.

Currently F-Stop can not move folders. You can, however, select all images in a folder and then protect all images in the folder a once. But you have to do this for each folder separately.
