This is quite the same than http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=109943 (Secure password protected albums - View protection). This bug is marked as WONTFIX with the solution : "set the rights in your filesystem carefully"

I agree with the reporters that this is not a solution. This kind of problem is very common and rights settings are something for advanced users so the solution with a special tag (an option in the album properties) seems OK to me.

"Sometimes I allow my friends or relatives to browse my photos with digikam"
-> and most of the time, I think you're not very far of your friends, or at least, they will not search in your computer but just use digikam...

it's not perfect but it is not intended to provide top level security and just work in case like this one
