    The passphrase gets confirmed even without confirming . If encryption key is used still able to delete with out warning , also not asking for passphrase when decrypting

    Recently installed and seems to work, but early days yet time will tell. However, first problem encountered is that the app is unable to access the external SD card on a mobile running Android 6.

    I have some encrypted files with the key stored in the app. One of them is an image. Then, when I used a file manager and requested this app to view the image, it opened the image and requested for the app password. I just hit cancel and the image, which was already opened in the back, showed completely. I don't think this was supposed to happen. I think the files should only be opened upon confirmation of the password. Please contact me for further information, if necessary.
