However it should be noted here that there are already many apps which offer the same nature of functionality. However Calculator% was being noticed by Durham Police as it started wide spreading globally.

A spokesperson revealed the following information Regarding Calculator%:

The Calculator app is essentially a secret photo album that children can use to hide photos or videos from their parents. The photos are hidden from view behind an icon that looks like a calculator. We would urge parents to be vigilant and discourage their children from using such an app.

However its surprising that why this App was removed from store as there are many other apps of same nature which are still operating.

Around one to two year back a video went viral on Facebook, alarming parents about this app. It should be mentioned here that the main goal of Calculator% was never a secret as developer himself introduced the functionality of app in description.

Lets wait to get more information about the worth of this app, as if the only reason to ban this app was hidden photos behind passcodes, many other apps would be banned as well. May be we are not aware of the actual functionality of Calculator% which will be revealed soon for sure.
