    So we all know Windows has a "Guest" account, where Administrator privileges are disabled. Is there any such app for bb to protect it from prying eyes? I know there are countless apps that let you password-protect your bb data, but if a friend or spouse picks up your bb and starts exploring, constantly being asked for a password when clicking certain apps will arouse suspicion that the bb owner has something to hide. (Bwahahahahaaa). Wouldn't it be nice if when someone asks if they can see your phone, you could quickly and stealthily invoke an app that, say, disables media card support, hides bbm and certain contacts, photos, and whatever other things the user chooses? This way, a phone could be handed to someone and they can play with it and explore all they want without you having to worry about them seeing something that would be embarassing of difficult to "explain." Additionally, the "guest" user would not run into any password prompts making them realize that they are locked out. They would think they've seen all there is to see, leaving you, the bb owner smelling like a rose. Anyone know of anything like this?

    In theory, this would be great. In reality, it probably does not exist. If you have something on your phone that you wish for others not to see, it is best to not give them access to your phone, or simply put a password on it.

    You can hide pictures, files, emails. Unless the person looking through your phone is BlackBerry savvy, they won't know where to look to get to hidden files.

    I agree with the above poster. Just password lock your device and don't let others play on it. It's not a toy for god's sake.

    There was (one time) talk of a future option to be able to combine "work" and "personal"onto one device while keeping them separate. In work mode, you would see icons and data that was work related. When you switch to personal, you would see your personal address book, icons, and data.

    I don't remember if it was something that was being looked into for BES only, or would be an option for everyone, but it sounds like something that would be a viable option.

    If you could have two profiles on one device, you could set up one for secure information, then set up the other for play.

    I don't remember how long ago that article came out, or if it is still being pursued, but with the number of personal devices linking to the work place, it may still be something Rim is considering.

    don't know of an app that would do that.

    anyone who would put a lover's information on a bb deserves to get caught. anyone looking through someone's phone or rummaging through personal property deserves to find what they suspect. sounds like perfect synergy.

    I think the product you're referring to is called Blackberry Balance, but it doesn't give you two profiles, instead it separates your business and personal info so a BES admin could wipe business data from a phone without nuking your personal info and apps.

    As for trust in a relationship, either don't do anything that a suspicious person would find and if you do, hide the evidence... otherwise you might get a 9-iron upside the head like Tiger...

    If I were an app creator, I'd make one and call it "Universal Filter." The user could simply make a filter, and the filter app would be password protected. It would add an option to each contact in the address book, in messengers, and emails to include that contact and all related communications in the password protected filter. It could even be structured like the Password Keeper app. All you'd have to say to someone who discovered it would be, "Yea, you don't need that; that's all my passwords." Sound good?

    Don't crap where you eat. You should have your device locked periodin case someone stole it, you lose it your data is still save. Along with this so someone don't pick up your phone and go to some porn site.

    exactly, just put a password on there, at the end of the day its yours and only yours.

    also the need for a password with stuff such as bill payments on appworld and NFC starting to get into the market is a must. you`d be supprised how many people dont use passwords on any phone! would you leave your car unlocked when your shopping??

    This is the correct answer. If you have anything to hide from your so called spouse, it ain't working out.

    wowwwww, i always love the personal advice aspect to a post like this. Its fun, fun fun to read. Anyways, here's what I've gathered from what you need. Stealth. This can be achieved by two features in the menu of the home screen.
    1. Hide
    2. Show all
    Keep your icons on hide all day long, this way you can see/access them all day. what you may do is put everything in one folder and hide that folder. You will need to hide your media folder as well. As that can not be placed into a folder.
    Now, when you need to cross the 38th parallel into enemy territory, you simply un-check "show all" and poof, there's your stealth with simply one click. Your hidden icon(s) or folder(s) disappear. You may now hand your phone to your spouse with confidence that your girlfriend's nudes remain out of sight, or allow your child to play brickbreaker without the grueling task of explaining why there is a picture of daddy licking someone's feet.

    As said by qbn, this won't work with a blackberry savvy individual. However, its a nice poor mans/womans helper. Until some bright developer tries their hand at making an app with a name based on a celebrity who has recently been caught...like Tiger Text. Wonder how that app made out.

    If you don't want "prying eyes" to see, then don't let them. Put a password on your phone or simply don't allow them to play around with it.

    Or, don't put stuff on your phone you wouldn't want a spouse to see.
