    Is there any way to password protect specific apps (namely WebAlbums) on the iPad 2? I have young nieces and nephews whom I sometimes allow to play with my iPad, but there are recently certain pictures in my WebAlbums app (linked to Picasa) that their prying eyes shouldn't be privy to..

    Any help would be greatly appreciated..

    Thanks!

    I assume that your trying to hide your porn??? ;)

    Not sure if this will work, but the homepage here had an app called Zen something which was a file manager.

    That allowed you to password protect folders that you put your files in when I was reading the description in the app store.

    Happy file storing. :D

    Have a look at an app called Stash which allows you to password protect files and photos.
    Works well for storing clients details etc., when you have kids playing with your pad.

    As you are probably getting the gist of, there is no system wide way to lock specific applications. The best you can get apps that will lock themselves and store the pictures there.

    If the niece thing isn't too often, does the Picasa app have a place to log off/on to your Picasa account? If so you can just log out of the account, maybe?

    Just took a look at Web Albums for iPad. I believe that is the app you are using. It says in the feature list that you can passcode protect specific albums in the app.

    Have you looked into that?

    lots of people are wrong. there is in fact an app in cydia thats called applocker that does in fact let you make a password for each individual app you have or folder. been using it since the jailbrake for ipad 2 came out

    This thread was started before the jailbreak for iPad 2 was available. The information was correct at the time.

    Thank you for reminding us that it can be done now. You never know who might stumble on an older thread when searching.

    No problem. It is never a bad idea to correct wrong or out of date info.
