8 Best Free File Encryption Tools For Android

You probably know that the encryption is one of the best ways to protect your files. But do you encrypt your files on your android device? If not, you should, because it's your responsibility to protect your privacy.

So I have created a list of best free file encryption android apps to help you protect your files from malicious hackers.

Let's take  a look at the list...

The first one on my list is...

  • Cryptonite

If you are a frequent visitor, you probably know about Cryptonite. If not, no problem.

Cryptonite is an open source file encryption solution based on the original EncFS code. It works very well except on some android 4.2 devices.

Most features don't require root access, but mounting EncFS volumes require root access and the Kernal FUSE support. And, the user interface of this app is very good and easy to use.

If you want to know how to use Cryptonite, refer the article Cryptonite - A Local & Cloud Data Encryption Tool.

  • Secret Space Encryptor

Secret Space Encryptor is not just a file encryption app, it also contains a text encrypter, password vault, password generator, and a clipboard cleaner. The user interface of this app reminds me of the old version of android.
The app supports the following encryption algorithms:
  • AES (256 bit)
  • RC6 (256 bit)
  • Serpent (256 bit)
  • Twofish (256 bit)
  • GOST28147 (256 bit)
  • Blowfish (448 bit)

A simple file encryption tool that can encrypt any file you want. The app has two modes of encryption, one is Automatic, another one is Manual. If you choose Automatic, you can encrypt/decrypt files using the master password. But in the Manual mode, you must enter a password to encrypt/decrypt each file.
