Program features

EDS (Encrypted Data Store) is a virtual disk encryption software for Android which allows you to store your files in an encrypted container. VeraCrypt(R), TrueCrypt(R), LUKS, EncFs, CyberSafe(R) container types are supported. The program can operate in two modes: non-mounted and mounted.

In non-mounted mode you can browse an encrypted container using EDS built-in file manager or any other file manager that supports Android Storage Access Framework. When you open a file (that is not a media or an image file) from a container in "non-mounted" mode, EDS decrypts the file to a temporary location on your device. Media files can be viewed directly from the container. In non-mounted mode you can open a container with FAT file system or ExFAT file system after installing an additional module.

In mounted mode the file system of a container is attached to the file system of the device. The files inside an encrypted container are encrypted or decrypted "on the fly", without temporary files. The mounted mode requires root access to the device. In mounted mode the following file systems are supported: FAT, NTFS, EXT4, EXT3, EXT2, ExFAT.

EDS is available in two versions: the paid version and the open source "lite" version. You can support the development of the "lite" version by making a donation:
