Fastwipe - Secure Delete

Fastwipe - Secure Delete


Fastwipe is a file Shredder for Android. It helps you protect your privacy by permanently deleting your files so that they cannot be recovered by file recovery tools.

When you delete your files from folders or galleries they are not deleted completely and they can still be recovered using a file recovery tool. Using a file shredder will ensure that your files are wiped out completely and are not recoverable.

HOW IT WORKS
Fastwipe works by overwriting your deleted files and folders with either 1s, 0s or a random pattern until all the recoverable portion is overwritten by new data.

WHO SHOULD USE
people with sensitive business data on phone.
people with private pictures, videos and files on phone
people selling their phone use it before and after resetting the Android to factory settings

HOW TO USE
Download on to your device from Google Play
Tap the icon to open the app
Choose your pattern 0,1 or random
Check either internal, external or both storage
Tap the Erase button

You can continue using your device while fastwipe is working, although it might be slower to use; You can also lock your device and come back in a few minutes to check on the progress.

If you get a low disk space message after the operation is complete just reboot the device and you will be fine. In fact your device should run a bit faster after the reboot.

NOTES
We have tested fastwipe against many data recovery tools. None of them were able to recover the data that was wiped by it.

WHAT IT DOES NOT DO
Fastwipe does NOT delete your current files or clear cache. It only erases already deleted files by overwriting on them.

Doesn't wipe SD (maybe nothing) The app says my internal memory and my external memory were both 10 Gb before wiping when internal is actually 2 Gb with a 16 Gb SD card. Duplicate photos still reappear.

Secure File Deletion In my opinion, a file overwrite option should be implemented a standard option in Android, as well as some type of one-button multiple cache clearing, maybe it could be hidden away from general public in debugger menu or something? Unfortunately, this is not the case. Instead, you can download this program which, so far as I can tell, works great. (I havent tested yet with recovery software though to be honest) I could not get the app to recognize my external sd card, but ymmv.
