With file manager apps like documents by readdle, you can password protect your files and also use it as a video player. The File Manager on the iPhone is all about managing your local files and cloud storage. The exciting and important features are missing out and we are here with some of the best file managers for the iPhone.

File Master – Privacy Protection
File master is the app that is a must-use file manager for a person with a lot of secret files. This file organizer does all the operations with just a tap. All the files can be remotely accessed using a password and locally using a master passcode. Only you can access these files and protect your content.
This file master app also does basic file operations along with securing your files. The best feature of file master is the multi-selection of files and long-press pop-up menus. You can import photos and also take a secret photo or video directly inside the app.
It supports all kinds of audio and video files. The music player also supports music control and background play using the File master app.
The privacy protection on file master is just on point. The App uses passcode to unlock and all the folders are protected using a passcode. You can also hide files and folders inside the file master app.
Any format of documents can be viewed using the built-in document viewer and these files can also be shared with other devices. You can also send these files as email attachments.

FileApp – File manager for iPhone
The FileApp is a file organizer for iPhone to manage all the files on your device. Using this app you can share data with a computer using the USB file transfer. You can also share files with Mac, Linux, Windows and other operating systems easily with few clicks.
FileApp lets you store files from third-party applications such as mail and safari. The best feature of using this app is to seamlessly share your data over HTTP and FTP options. This eliminates the use of USB cables for file transfer. I love this technique, it reduces my mess.
You can also paste the text and images directly inside the app and it will create a file on your behalf. This app is loaded with a powerful pdf editor to edit your files on the go. The most interesting feature is that you can also code different programming languages such as Html directly on this app.
The app is protected with ios passcode protection and also a passcode on app startup. If required, a wireless sharing of files can be protected with a password.
All music and video file formats can be accessed using the file app. You can also access the airplay support and play music in the background.
