-----------------------------------------------------------
SHREDroid forces your Android phone to overwrite deleted data so that it is actually deleted and can no longer be recovered.

Our smart phones store sensitive personal and business data such as emails, SMS messages, pictures, and our web browsing histories. Unfortunately deletion on phones is not immediate. Even after you delete your email or clear your browser's cache, the data will remain on your phone typically for days or even months, depending on phone usage. This data is easily recoverable with minimal effort by technically-knowledgable persons.

Standard countermeasures do not help, such as overwriting files with random data, due to special features of the Android's file system (namely the use of journaling). Even encryption does not help as the associated key must be stored temporarily in memory and is recoverable after deletion.

Our SHREDroid application solves this problem. SHREDroid forces your Android phone to overwrite the sections of storage where deleted data resides so that the data is really deleted and cannot be recovered.

READ I really do like this app, its come in handy, just one flaw that has nothing to do with the app its self. How do you know if it really is deleting? I have an LG optimus G so if anyone could give some pointers that would be greatly apperiated
