The Encryptorator is a mobile app that secures images within an encrypted database. The application requires a login – stored as an SHA3 hash within the app – which is the key to un-encrypt the images which are themselves AES encrypted. Optionally you may store images un-encrpyted yet still have the images behind the application’s login screen.
With both the password and data encrypted your data is secured and can’t be seen even if the data is copied from your mobile device.
Secure images of any kind – PNG’s, JPEGs or GIFs.

- AES encryption is used on all image files
- Your password is hashed via SHA3
- Show hidden system files (on by default)
- Delete original file on encrypt (off by default)
- Encrypt files (on by default)

What you should know
Use of this app has the following implications:
- Once an image is in the database there is no current facility to export it.
- There is no password recovery mechanism – and if there was one it wouldn’t help you – the password is the key used to encrypt the images. Without it the images cannot be decrypted.
- Your data stays on your device under your control. That means it is up to you to remember your password.
- Clearing the app’s data from Android’s application manager will delete the database.
- Images larger than 3MB are not supported.
- The larger the image the longer it takes to encrypt/decrypt: be patient.
