Swipe | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
In the age of the overshare, privacy is king.

I’m pretty sure all of us know an “overswiper”—for me, it’s my mother-in-law. No sooner have I handed over my phone to show her a smiling photo of her daughter or a snapshot of our two dogs than I find she’s thumbing through my entire gallery, not all of which I’m inclined to share.

How to halt this brazen snooping? With a new iOS app called Overswipe, which lets you decide which images are open to perusal by an outside party. Just check them off and hit “Display,” then kick back and watch your friend struggle to find your embarrassing selfies. If you upgrade to the Pro version, you can even set a passcode that prevents them from exiting the app.


 

So the next time you’re thinking about deleting that perfect dick pic, don’t worry, you can hang onto it (the photo, that is). Nobody has access to it but you. And extortionist hackers. And whoever you’re stalking on Tinder. And possibly Apple. Other than that, totally private!
