SHREDDIT is android data eraser which securely deletes files leaving them irrecoverable. This tool erases your data completely and protects falling into malicious hands. It deploys quick shredding algorithm which shreds huge data volumes PERMANENTLY in matter of seconds. The technique especially designed to work for devices internal and external storage with optimized window (buffer) sizes to shred data with efficiency and reliably. The software uses chip smartly for data shredding yielding greater time efficiency while erasing. This software has no background service and hence no overhead and perfectly safe to keep in your tool-set.

Caution: Data erased using the shredder CANNOT be recovered by any means.

Data Shredding Standards
Shreddit implements the standards of data sanitization techniques which have been developed after decades of research. Below is the list of key data shredding standards used by the tool (we do not claim to have invented these standards; we just have implemented them in our data shredding tool for you).

- British HMG IS5 (3 pass)
- US DoD 5220.22 (3 pass)
- German VSITR (7 pass)
- Russian GOST P50739 (2 pass)
- NIST 800-88 (2 pass)
- Zero Filler
- One Filler (Secure Erase)
- Random Filler (Pseudo Random Numbers)

File Explorer Integration
Though this tool has its own light weight file explorer for providing easy access to your gallery and personal data, it also provides strong integration with your device's built in file manager (OR any third party file manager). Like for instance on ES File Explorer select one or multiple files and go to Share > Shreddit, the app will take all those files as input and shreds them.

Media Files Preview (Gallery Integration)
The app provides preview of media files to give you better insight about content you want to secure erase. You can use the app with your favorite photo manager, like with Google Photo. Just select one or multiple imagesvideos and send to the shredder to erase them permanently.

Known Limitations
It shreds the media file (video or image) from the gallery completely, you might see the image thumbnail in your gallery. Don’t worry all the content of the specified media file has gone, just re-scan your media to sync thumbnails with media content.

To erase external sdcard on device having KitKat (Android 4.4) or later version super user rights are required i.e. your device should be rooted.

    New update. Both Shreddit and Z-Explorer File Manager will not run on Android 11. Started using on Aug 30. It stopped working after the lastest Android 10 updates from Google on September 5th. Uninstalled Shreddit and reinstalled. Works fantastic! Still learning the menu operation. So far all menus work as expected. No unannounced unanticipated behavior in the guise of user experience. Something I do not want in a file eracing app. Thank you! Also using companion Z-explorer file manger.

    Great foundation for a shredding app. Quickly shreds files in my internal storage, but can't access my SD card even though it has permission. Tried to submit a bug report, but the bug reporter is also broken. Will try to find another app.

    I have an issue shredding the internal storage from the Shreddit app Lon my Huawei phone. It's showing the SD card as the internal storage (My internal storage is 10GB, not 28GB) It shows the SD card and it only shreds the SD card. So I need to shred the internal storage too. Android Version:- Lollipop (5.0.1) ***Also I have sent a mail to support.

    Maybe it does the job, maybe it doesn't. Who's to know? What does irritate me though is that when I cancel a process it takes forever, like ten minutes, to do so. Sometimes it just hangs up. Is this my phone of the app? Again, who knows?

    Samsung Galaxy S9 running Android version 9 (Pie). When running "wipe empty space" (either running in background or not) it locks up my phone and the screen goes black and is unresponsive for a long time. I tried with a few different algorithms, same thing. Yesterday I tried it one last time and it crashed my Android OS and caused the phone to reboot. I'm not sure if your app ever finishes the erase or not but now I'm afraid to run it at all. It worked great on my Galaxy S7. Any ideas?

    Can't find better apps than Shreddit apparently. It has simple UI design, no hassle, and can delete any files permanently in a matter of seconds!! I am loving it 😊 For further improvement, can you release a pro version for this app on next update, please? Because I am not fond of Ads..Thanks in advance 👍

    photos can still be recovered. I've used this many times and it gave me peace of mind, but I recently decided to test it by downloading an app to recover files. it found files I've "deleted" with multiple passes, on different types and recovered them with ease. I've deleted multiple times and can still recover. I like the thought behind it, but it they are easily recoverable and not gone "permanently".

    tl,dr: I wish the app would have been more communicative about restarts. while erasing empty space on internal storage the phone spontaneously restarted twice in a row. data did not seem to be missing, but while i had 5GB of free space, the internal storage was completely full. after another restart, the issue seems to be resolved.

    Moto G6 Ran app around 3pm by 11 pm it was 97% done. Woke up and the app was closed with no indication if the program did anything. Within minutes the phone rebooted. Took over 10 minutes to start back up. The SD card could not be found. Since my apps are stored on the SD card. Hardly anything ran and if they did, they were slow and crashed. Battery drain was extreme. WIth Battery Saver lost 51% in 10 hours of non-use. After trying every trick to get my SD card to work. I had to reset to factory and reformat the SD card. Lost my photos, videos and documents. Also lost my time

    I think it works. DiskDigger couldn't find the files BUT it did find thumbnails that were created. Use DiskDigger to find the thumbnails and delete those with that app. Shreddit really needs a scan option for thumbnails because they are typically buried deep in the Data folder and most people have no clue where they are. People saying the app isn't working are probably seeing thumbnails. Look at the file size. It'll typically be in kb and not mb.

    Even after wiping emty space using all provided algorithms inside this app, the shredded data are still recoverable using common digger applications. I recommend, better "factory reset" your phone and SD cards before selling/exchanging your devices. Thanks ! Reply: Not misguiding, I shared what I experienced like many others in this review thread. Even after doing Zero Filler shredded data is getting recovered by digger apps. Once factory reset by manufacturer's firmware they no longer reappear.

    I love this app. Have used it for years and it's exactly what I need. Shredding isn't honestly good for this type of memory, but for private files I like to be able to choose just one pass of zero fill (some desktop applications don't even do that.) Easy to use and the pin access makes this a favorite app.

    App seems good although i haven't used it yet. I am looking for a button to wipe free space. When that function becomes available and it works, I will gladly rate this app 5 Stars. I changed my rating to 5 stars because developer immediately contacted me and explained that the wipe free space function exists where the 3 dots next to storage is located. Note to Developer: prominently display this button as stand alone for next version. Good job!

    This rating is for the GUI only. I'm going to have to trust that it's actually doing what it says and not just performing simple deletions. If nobody gets a hold of the files that I shred then it must be working, if that's the case then I will never know if it's working or not because I will never know if somebody tried to access shredded files. I will however know if it's not working if somebody should happen to gain access to a shredded file. So with shreddit no news is good news!

    locked out of app because after entering my pin there is no way to confirm.... i.e. and "enter" or "confirm" or"go" button. I didnt forget my pin, and I entered it correctly several times after restarting me app multiple times. So I went to "forgot PIN" anyway, and had to email sent with a temporary pin or replacement pin, and same problem-enter PIN and nothing happens.

    Wanted to shred contents of download folder and it deleted the folder itself. Most shred apps don't do that, they delete contents. Not horrible, but it's not a rooted device so I can't recreate the folder. So now I need to use the sd card. Annoying so I give 4 stars

    The app doesn't work properly- when you try to shred it tells you that access is denied. If you stop your gallery or clean the cache it tells you the same thing. What's the use of this app then?

    Does delete files securely as claimed. One has to open specific directory in Shreddit where files to be deleted securely reside and use Shreddit on them. This rule applies to Dumpster too, if you don't want same files reappearing in Deep Scan section of Dumpster. First use Deep Scan in Dumpster. Delete all required file from Deep Scan itself using Delete button. Now navigate in Shreddit to /Android/data/com.baloota.dumpster/files and use, Shreddit on all files in .trash and .thumbnails folders.

    Less algorithms than ishredders amateur hour junk whos apps FAIL and cant even finish large jobs anyway and after deconstruction use a known repetitive recoverable "random" wipe *buwbubw (newest 2019 highend hardware)1/10th the time of other APPS) THIS follows thru. I'm a high end very TECH VERSED power user who takes the time to verify deletion and where ishredder FAILS MISERABLY and reports honest one star reviews for removal this app doesn't because it lives up.
