Secret Box for Android

By Gnugu Free Editors' Rating

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 24, 2013

Want to hide a secret on your smartphone? Secret Box can help. It is a lockbox for certain files on your phone, but it doesn't work with some of your more-revealing information. It also doesn't do a very good job of hiding itself.

Unlike other private vault apps, Secret Box doesn't disguise itself as another app or hide from your menu. It appears out in the open for any prying eyes to see. Not only does it not hide itself, it won't hide contact data, call history, or other scandalous details, either. The only things it can hide are notes and photos, which might be enough for some users. This app doesn't access any Web-connected features, which is nice. It doesn't allow you to customize its rather boring layout, but it does make surfing through the secrets you've saved easy.

As far as vault apps go, Secret Box leaves plenty to be desired. Not only could snoops easily find that you have the app, which means they know you're hiding something, but they could also still see calls and texts. It won't do much good if you're trying to hide your infidelity as the app clearly advertises what you can do.

Developer's Description

In this Secret Box for Android application all data is AES encrypted and protected by your own password. Unlike other password protected notes it is the entire Secret Box for Android that is protected, so you don't need to type the password for every note. This also prevents the potential intruders from seeing even the titles of your secrets. Your secrets are safe. All your data is stored in an encrypted file on your device's media card to make backup and transfer between devices easy. When the application is run for the very first time, you will be asked to create a new password. Please remember the password. We can't help you if you forget it! We cannot unscramble the eggs. Once you give it a password a data file for your secret box will be created on your media card.
