Cryptonite

Cryptonite


This is a free and open-source file encryption solution based on the original EncFS code. Cryptonite is fully compatible with all EncFS features.

Mounting doesn't work on some Android 4.2 devices. We're working on a solution.

READ THIS FIRST: This application is UNDER DEVELOPMENT. Intended for EXPERIENCED ANDROID USERS ONLY. While most features don't require root, mounting EncFS volumes requires ROOT and Kernel FUSE support (found in some CyanogenMod ROMs). Downloading from, uploading to and creating EncFS volumes on your Dropbox or on your phone is supported on all devices.

@H: Don't use the rating system as your testing playground. It's highly demotivating.

OFFLINE MODE: To access an encrypted Dropbox volume when you're offline, sync the encrypted volume to a local folder with one of the many apps that provide online storage synchronization (e.g. FolderSync Lite or Dropsync). Then, mount that local volume with Cryptonite. This will only work on rooted phones that support FUSE though.

FAQ: Why can't I decrypt and encrypt files on the fly?
Why can't I mount EncFS volumes on my Samsung/ Motorola / Sony device?
Why can't I access any folder on my Dropbox?
Why do I need root privileges to mount EncFS and TrueCrypt volumes?

Great Been using this for quite a while, really like it. Is love to see the ui get cleaned up, and more types of remote filesystems supported.

Frustrated functionality No real support for good file management. No ability to upload multiple files at a time.

Too inconvenient This app was released well over a year ago yet is still a beta product, it has barely any options for customisation and doesn't provide standard features like multi-select and thumbnail view so you have to move files one by one into the encfs. It also makes it obvious that the folder is encrypted due to the encfs6 file which stands out like a sore thumb, worse still it significantly decreases image quality when encrypted.

Would love to have a GUI for Truecrypt containers
