Encdroid is a file manager application for Android devices to keep your files encrypted on Dropbox, Google Drive or the local storage of the device. It is compatible with EncFS so volumes created with Encdroid can be accessed on Windows/MacOS/Linux desktop and laptops and vice versa.

Supported operations include creating new volumes, importing existing files into volumes, opening files inside volumes by launching the chosen viewer application, creating directories, cut/copy/paste files and directories from one location to another within a volume, renaming files and directories, exporting files and directories from a volume onto the local device etc.

Explanation of permissions:

* Storage: Used for viewing and exporting files to the SD card.
* Network: Needed to access Dropbox and Google Drive.
* Prevent sleeping: Some encryption operations can run for a long time and take even longer if the device is sleeping so Encdroid temporarily prevents the device from going to sleep.
* Manage accounts / Use accounts: These are needed to link against a Google account and access Google Drive.

Since Encdroid is open source, it is possible for anyone to audit the source code by visiting the GitHub repository or even build their own copy of the application for increased peace of mind. See https://github.com/mrpdaemon/encdroid for the source code and contribution information.

This application includes cryptographic software. The country in which you currently reside may have restrictions on the import, possession, use, and/or re-export to another country, of encryption software. BEFORE using any encryption software, please check your country's laws, regulations and policies concerning the import, possession, or use, and re-export of encryption software, to see if this is permitted. See <http://www.wassenaar.org/> for more information.

The U.S. Government Department of Commerce, Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), has classified this software as Export Commodity Control Number (ECCN) 5D002.C.1, which includes information security software using or performing cryptographic functions with asymmetric algorithms. The form and manner of this application makes it eligible for export under the License Exception ENC Technology Software Unrestricted (TSU) exception (see the BIS Export Administration Regulations, Section 740.13) for both object code and source code.

    I've been searching for an app that can open the encrypted Dropbox volume I created with ubuntu. Would be nice to have an option to lock the app with a PIN!

    No other app that I have found encrypts files directly to Google drive and requires no third party account. This app is great. It is working perfectly. However, the file explorer is lackluster. Also, it doesn't allow access to external sdcard.

    Great app and must have app if you have sensitive data in your phone. Since it uses open standard, I can open the encrypted files from computer or other target. Hope this remain in active development. Feedback - Allow to select multiple files to encrypt.

    I struggled with Cryptonite and eventually gave up but this 'just works' and allows really easy per-file encryption which is perfect for cloud syncing (as opposed to e.g. TrueCrypt which relies on volume encryption and makes it a pain to sync over the air). Good Job!

    I use this with Encfs4win. I abandoned BoxCryptor and never looked back.
