    The user interface is ANYTHING but intuitive. The "Help" is basically useless. If you're willing to spent LOTS of time figuring how it works, it's pretty useful. I greatly prefer the Windows version of VeraCrypt - its far more intuitive - but this actually gets the same job done, even if it's a bit more cumbersome. A two-page ddescription of how to add files to an existing container would be a MAJOR improvement. It seems to present only a subset of available apps to open container files .

    ratur I've used it for years. A little complicated to use (navigating back & forth), but does a great job. It creates encrypted containers where you can place anything (files and folders) that you can rename from default to any name you like. If you are familiar with truecrypt or veracrypt on a PC, it works like them and also works directly with containers from them. Developer is very responsive. 👍👍

    anleitung (PS1: I will pay for the pro version only if EDS pro improves Video/Photo browsing experience like the android Gallery app. Mouting is not an option because nowadays root permission is not very common in phones.) (PS2: There is no preview for video files. It only supports preview photos. Since I can not use Gallery app to open videos/photos in EDS container, I hope EDS company really consider adding video preview feature and better gallery support. Thank you very much) ---- I changed 1 star to 5 stars. The reason why I gave 1 star is because it can not open/mount LUKs encrypted USB Drive (Partition). But later I figure out how to use LUKs container image file, that actually works, althought it only supports luks1 (does not support luks2). This is the only program I can find which supports LUKs encryption and works well so I changed the review to 5 stars.

    veracrypt As far as i can tell, contrary to all of the negative reviews, this app does exactly what it states it will do. As others have mentioned the interface is somewhat clunky and non-intuitive, it probably helps that I have a strong Unix/Linux background in working with encryption systems. The only thing that I see that is really a flaw is that there is no cut/paste (recursive move) facility, there is only copy/paste functionality, which severely limits usability.

    sd card I really wanted to like this app but the interface makes it unusable. Created an encrypted volume on an SD card but, having navigated to a normal folder on the SD card and then moved a subfolder to the encrypted volume, I now get those two paths shown in the list of file volumes with no way to traverse past them back up the tree! Maybe there's a hidden command, but the screens are pretty sparse and I've spent a long time looking. Disappointed.

    Absolutely wonderful! Just looked at help, watched a few videos and I'm up and running. Made a container, then took some time working how to put anything in it, but got there in the end. Doesn't seem to read from my external SD card. Nor do I understand the bit about ExFat containers, but it doesn't matter. So far as I'm concerned this tiny app works well. Top marks to the developers. Sorry I didn't give it 5 star first time round.

    The app works quite well with my small (100 MB) Veracrypt file but there is no documentation, and the file manager incorporated into the app is the worst on Android that I have ever used. My usual file manager is ES file explorer and it would be much better if it were possible to use external file managers of choice. Otherwise, this app does the job.

    pretty sure i used to use this app regularly but now i can't even figure out how to go up when browsing through files which is a big problem because if you choose the same directory ie. device storage it takes you to the folder you were in last instead of the folders that are on the directory you selected. i hope I'm making sense here but this app just really sucks now.

    works fabulously Thank you. only one thing which will not work is access to SD card which is absent. it it uses its own explorer instead of a system menu where we can choose which explorer we want to use and identify the micro SD location. . strongly suggest to buy the paid version

    Utterly useless. Documentation nonexistent, will not access external USB chip, will not open containers to store or retrieve files. No reason for an app to live on my device that does exactly nothing but take up space. I only wish I could have given it zero stars and still got to make a review of this horrendous and useless product.

    Transferred Veracrypt container to external SD from computer, won't read external SD. Transferred to internal storage and multiple files were missing. Transferred back to computer and the missing files were still in the container EDS just wouldn't display them... some of which were simple .JPG format.

    Creates volumes and mounts them, but doesn't say where in the file system they are mounted. No apparent way to add files, other than in app you can create an empty text file. Frequently trying to read clipboard for some reason, even though I am not attempting to paste anything.

    Veracrypt-compatible. This is great. Navigation at first was difficult. When in the vault, I just used my Android back navigation button to get to my phone filesystem. Pressing and holding on files allows you to copy or move them around.

    does not support containers with more than one encryption e.g. aes-twofish. And the paid version which includes that functionality is not open source AND requires internet permissions unlike the lite version. I wouldnt mind paying for the light version if it could handle multi encryption containers, but no way im installing the full version.

    I gave one star because I couldn't use this app, but then I gave a second chance to it. Before giving bad feedback check the developers site and read the user manual, because it works well, just not very obvious how to do things in it!

    This is a nice tool, especially for a free one. No problems so far. If I don't run into any issues within the next days, I'll try the non-lite version. Being able to sync a container to dropbox would be really helpful for me.

    works great but crashes after 20-30mins when doing lots of writes or changes to a 50gb+ store. also doesn't seem to have NTFS access which would be ideal for external drives (usb) otherwise I have to format external USB as ExFat or Fat32 and ExFat easily corrupts with windows 10.

    As usual the most difficult part of programming, is creating a decent user interface. This is probably the worst ui i have ever seen ! Com on this is just a simple program, you must be able to do better than this. Just look at the examples (file explorers) around you.

    works great so far - just using as a private vault (pretty much default settings) in case phone gets lost or stolen. will buy it but continue to use lite ver as i don't like internet permission. how can i tell the space left in a container? wish it has an indicator. also, toggling between container and local files is a bit tedious - better to have them listed without the up/down arrows or have two-pane view maybe. please keep up the good work Devs.

    I tested it and it does not work on my Galaxy Tab A (Android Version 6.0.1) unless you make containers with simple passwords. Every time I create a True Crypt container that includes *symbols* rather than just letters and numbers I get the error "wrong password or unsupported container". It works just fine on my Samsung SM-G920V phone Two more stars if I can get it to work on my Tablet Changed from THREE to ONE stars when it started locking up on my Galaxy S6

    Absolutely awesome! Much respect to the devs for open-sourcing the light version. After granting permission to external storage the app freezes. Kept searching for the manual unmount option until I accidentally discovered that tapping the shield icon next to the container name will do the unmounting.

    To all those who can no longer open things, you have to save the paths to the containers, uninstall and reinstall the app, then put the containers back on the list and you should have no more problems. That's what worked for me.

    Good program. Could be easier to use, and have a better UI. Can read Truecrypt volumes. Doesn't seem to read Veracrypt ones. But dev needs to do more homework because wiping files on smart cards is meaningless. The data is redirected to different sectors just before hitting the drive. This error means I have questions about how secure this program is.

    In terms of security this app delivers, it also has a nice interface. One of the things I dislike though is the internal image viewer which doesn't open pictures in full screen and you have to keep zooming in and out with your fingers, because of this I am forced to open images in the gallery which has the problem of not being able to easily switch between pictures as you will have to keep going back to eds from the gallery. And this app unfortunately crashes frequently when trying to reopen a container.

    Works very reliably with containers built by app (have not tried to use with Truecrypt container) I agree with others regarding the file manager - It's not intuitive, but it works. I noticed that if doc inside open container is in use by external app, and phone restarts, file remains on phone unencrypted. If encryption is as solid as advertised, this is a great app.

    This is going straight to the top as the best encryption app for Android phones, especially unrooted ones! Five stars even though there are much more features that can be added, like better file browsing and management. For those who are paranoid, this is the only encryption app that doesn't have access to internet or your personal data. If you are uncomfortable with this one, there are other apps that have connection to internet and access to your private data for you to choose.

    This is a great app for people using VeraCrypt or TrueCrypt and the new user interface is nice. My one recommendation would be to have the full screen menu bar, when looking at images, be transparent like it was in version 1.x or have an option for that under settings. The current 2.x menu bar blocks part of the image until it auto-hides but feels far more intrusive then the old menu bar.

    Might be promising, but the button Select is .. useless. File explorer and inserting to the encrypted volume is a nightmare: only one file by file, not a folder, (Select button? why for?) then each time has to go up to root folder, back back back then paste to that volume, create a new folder for subfolder, then go to insert one file per one... haizz, I give up. It's better to compress with a compress file with password like RAR or ES Explorer and then explore files then... uninstalled, could not go on to test further.

    I had problems with other encryption apps and I gave this a try and it's pretty good, the customization helps and it's easy to create/mount volumes. I like that I can open volumes created in other devices (something you can't do with other apps). In my humble opinion I think the UI could use a bit of new design (like material design), and the file manager (especially the image viewer) feels outdated (perhaps that's by security design).

    Unless you both (1) root your device and (2) buy the paid app, then you can't use truecrypt as mounted. In other words there is no difference between this lite app and just putting your stuff in a password protected zip file: you still have to unencrypt your stuff on disk to access it..

    Yes, you can mount your file on KitKat even if it is on SD card! Context initialization failed message appears because your container is not on internal memory but on SD card. All we know, on Kit Kat we don't have write access! So I found a simple solution: press on your container till you see the context menu, select properties and than check the box for "read only" and type your password - you will see no more "Context initialization failed "!
