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.

SECURITY: Read up on important security considerations: http://code.google.com/p/cryptonite/wiki/SecurityConsiderations

PERMISSIONS: Internet permission is required to access your Dropbox.
SD card access is required to read and write files.

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?

Easier than on a mac! Excellent app that allows me to have an encrypted folder within Dropbox to preserve my freedom from the Police State and Big Brother. Thank you.

Impressive! Great work. Linking with Dropbox worked seamlessly at first go. Obviously it's not a design masterpiece, but still giving 5 stars just for the concept and functionality.

perfection and simplicity love it. its exactly what iwas looking for. one question can you hide cryptonite so no one can see its even installed? that would make it the best app for android if that was an available feature

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.
