Store & access your files securely
Version: 1.5.2
Added: 24-03-2021

DroidFS is an alternative way to use encrypted overlay file-systems on Android that uses its own internal file explorer instead of mounting virtual volumes. This allows you to store files in encrypted virtual volumes that other apps can't decrypt.
Currently, DroidFS supports only gocryptfs. This algorithm protects file contents and file names but doesn't hide directory structure or file sizes. If you want more details, take a look at their GitHub repository:

- Volumes fully compatibles with their original algorithm implementation
- Internal opening of images, videos, audios and text files
- Common file and folder operations: copy, move, rename, delete
- Volume password changing
- Internal/External encrypted volumes
- Cross-volume file imports
- Internal camera to safely take pictures and import them directly into a volume
- In-app screenshot protection
- Theme color fully customizable

Read & write access to shared storage: required to create, open and modify volumes and import/export files to/from volumes.
Biometric/Fingerprint hardware: needed to encrypt/decrypt password hashes using a fingerprint protected key.
Camera: required to take photos directly from DroidFS and import them securely. You can deny this permission if you don't want to use this feature.

DroidFS is free, open-source, and you can find the project's repository:
- on GitHub:
- on the Gitea instance of the Chapril project:

Warning !
Security is relative. DroidFS does not come with any warranty and should not be considered as an absolute safe way to store files.
