Deleting a file or directory does not remove the contents.
Recovery tools can be used to restore the previous content.

AndroShredder allows to permanently destroy file contents and wipe previously used storage space, so that secret data can't be restored even by advanced recovery tools.

The new SMS Database wipe function allows you to securely wipe your SMS database without deleting existing messages.
AndroShredder needs the SMS read/write permission to do that.
No messages are actually sent by AndroShredder!

AndroShredder has been tested against several data recovery tools. None of them were able to recover data that was cleaned by AndroShredder.

You can choose out of a variety of standard cleaning algorithms, like U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR or just do a quick shred, which should be enough for most SSD based storage devices and USB flash drives.

Features
+ Can act as a share target, send files to AndroShredder e.g. from your camera or file manager app
+ Select multiple files and directories to shred
+ Search for pictures, videos or other file types
+ Can preview pictures, videos or any other file before deletion
+ Cleans nested folders and their content
+ Save selections for later re-use
+ U.S DoD 5220.22-M, British HMG IS5 (Enhanced), Russian GOST P50739-95, German VSITR and quick shred algorithms
+ Clean (wipe) free space on any writable storage device (SSD cards, Hard Disks, USB flash drives etc.)
+ Wipe SMS storage database
+ Wipe FAT32 devices > 4GB
+ Tested against various recovery tools
+ Optional password protection

Whats new

    + Jumps directly to shred dialog when called from other app
    + Fixed occasional crash in file selection
    + Preparation for more languages (coming soon)

Lots of potential Developer is attentive to user feedback. I rarely give 5 stars. Earning even 4 stars is not easy. To this app developer I'd say thanks for listening. ?

fruko prof

Need Some Quick Information about Algorithms I confirm that this app does what it says. Also, I have a suggestion. I think it will be good that inform users about the other algorithms. What they do and which one is best for something bla bla bla... So you may add some approximate time that is function of space area of the disk. I hope these help you to improve your amazing succession! Thank you.

whats up

SHOWS things you DiD NOT KNOW THAT'S THERE! 3&1/2..because, (1) it pulls up, things, things that are BLOATWARE, things I DID NOT DOWNLOAD. (2) PHOTOS that had suppose to, been erased, and removed,→AND DOSE REMOVE→ PRIOR DELETED →LEFTOVER→ GHOST files. (3) and it shows, that it overwrites on previous downloads. 1&2 ARE TRUE, NOW IF IT DOES a true (D.O.D, AND THE OTHER TWO ENCRYPTION OVERWRITES) (YATA, YATA) then I will give 2 more stars, but you're not even reading this ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

??? Never completes a shred with nested directories without a "can't delete" error.

Bunny Assassin

Love it! I'm so happy that you took your time to make this app. It works perfectly and I think my phone is actually faster after too. Thank you!

Steve S

Excellent App! This is one of the best utility apps I've got on my device. Bravo developers - very well done!

Tuan Tran

Very good! It's free, has many secure delete options, and has nice cartoons. C'mon this is refreshing given this climate of having everything look cookie-cutter. Keep up the good work.

Moley Webb

Andro shredder Fantastic app. Full marks.

David higginbotham

:) I'll change it to a five if it works, and a one if it sucks

Massoud P

wow an amazing app. thanks alot. it is good that i can use my own file browser to explore and shred my files.

Will Paccione

Nice app Does exactly what it says it does and the developer is very involved. Good stuff. Thanks.

Arnie Read

Did not work for me This app looked good, really nice interface. But on scrolling down list of search results, app crashes. Tried several times. This on a new Samsung galaxy tab. ... Thanks for your reply, the workaround works. Good luck with the fix, :o)

Rizki Sindhuarta

Just what i needed Don't be surprised with the stars. I personally hate the UI & icons, etc. The functions itself is awesome and works as described, the only app that does the job wiping free space. I don't have to pull out my SD card anymore to wipe in desktop.

Wesley G

Does the job. Tested it with a freshly wiped and formatted 4GB SD card (my phone is rooted and SDFixed, not sure if this app would work on an SD card with a non-rooted phone any more). I recorded a video to the SD card, wiped with this tool and tested with recovery software. It was unrecoverable. Good work.

radx4g

Works I was amazed how hard it was to find a program to securely delete files on Android. I just wanted something simple that I could point at a specific folder and overwrite the contents of all files. I tried many other programs that did not work before I found Andro Shredder. It did exactly what I wanted without any issues or complications. I verified that selected files were properly wiped. It might be useful if it also had a free space eraser, but it works great as is.

penyebaracun

NOT good enough Try to wipe your phone self, and then use " GT data recovery app (this app can you find on play store) ", you will still found so many data,especially data image that can be recovered.i try all methods, but it still the same result

Shehab Najjar

Note Please add ( restore files ) function to the app,also it will be a good idea for many users.

JK FlipFlop

No write permission It was working before, but now it just gives me that message when I attempt to wipe the internal storage. It wipes my SD card, but not internal. So far the solution to this problem is to remove the SD card and do the wipe, though that is very inconvenient. I'm running KitKat (4.4) if that helps. I'll screen record it if you need to see it.

Rashed Dawabsheh

Good App App rich with features. Big thanks to the developer, user friendly, yet powerful.

Paul Green

So far so good... If it's doing what it says it does, I've not had any issues. One warning: BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU DELETE! I deleted what I thought were thumbnails and sent DOZENS of my pictures to cyber-oblivion. But thats my fault. So, before you shred, check.

mike morris

Brilliant good work I've tested this and it works well corrupts the telephony files

Raida Raw

perfect haven't had it long but it does exactly what i need...

ab Kh

Hello Thank you a lot for your good app.

Akash Syed

Not working Wiped many times ,,, tried all methods none of these worked,,, When I connect with usb storage and recover all of my data is back

Dan S

I feel safe using it Request: is there a way to add an option to select all SD cards, internal and external to wipe. I like to hit wipe and let it run at night when I go to bed.

Joshua Janes

Did not shred I tried shredding a picture. The picture could no longer be found in the shedder app, but I could pull it up from gallery.

Krisna Ananda

Wipe Does wipe , clean data on the phone/format

Clive Benecke

Said it deleted files but they were still there. S5

Timothy Peckinpaugh

Wortless All files that were recovered using file recovery did not do anything

Massimo Uno

What I have been looking for.

Mike Schmid

Excellent app Works very well.

mij lim

Great Very useful and don't add recovery, it's ironic when we need to delete permanent then we can get that file again

Vinnie Tudisco

Crashes Program continued to crash despite whatever I did to prevent while in search mode...lags drastically while scrolling through all data then when I start to come up on what I want shredded it crashes... And while selecting 7 pass algorithm it barely shows one and a 7 pass clean moves just as fast as a 1 pass clean... There's something wrong there... It should take much longer.

Arthur Sombrito

Crashes when shredding a 3GB file Generates an "open failed: EACCES (Permission denied)" error when I tried Quick shredding a 3GB file in /storage/extSdCard/DCIM/Camera folder

Goutham Soorya

Not Working This used to work fine until i tried recently. The app Photo Recovery can still recover everything

saurabh diwate

Is this app a joke?? Wiped my free space for 3 times but diskdigger recovering the deleted files back every time...

Suphanit Pothikot

Must Have App Using it long time. Does what it says. I tried recovering back with diskdigger and the shredded file is really gone.

Jared Fields

Excellent! Getting my phone ready to sell on eBay has become a much less worrisome process! thanks so much!

Mark Glesinger

???? Seriously needs a select all option. Big, tedious, waste of time tapping dozens of files to select. Never completes a shred with nested directories without a "can't delete" error.

dave m.

Freezing my phone I installed this app and now my phone runs horrible. It will not Un install either. I did a factory reset and it automatically downloads. This app is malware

Massoud P

wow an amazing app. thanks alot. it is good that i can use my third party file browser to explore and shred my files.

Mithun Kookkiri

Good App I just have a query, is it 100% Reliable?

Peter Cook

Great App Does everything on the tin..best data cleaning app ever

Looks & Works Great. Is a needed tool. Edit: Previously, files & folders "successfully" shredded were still accessible by file managers, etc. May have been device specific, IDK, didn't seek help. Looks, options, etc.- all else looked nice. Now shredding & wiping work well on the same device & many others. This is needed; looks nice, simple to use, & works.

Raphaël Mélotte

Useless although I really wanted it to work Quick shredding claims to be enough to make file unrecoverable but even the best shredding method can't shred files they are still recoverable by GT recovery. Wiping free space did not help. App was interesting but useless for now

Darren Marsden

Happy days If you want to permanently delete the photos then fileshred the ones you want and also the cache in Android/data/com.sec.android.gallery3d/cache folder. If you want to delete others then there are some in .face

paul harmsworth

I shredded a photo from my photos, and free space, but the photo reternd,,,1 star at the moment, as im still testing..........nop,don't delete any thing 0 stars

Louis Narvaez

Superb Job ! I just would like this application able to delete history call phone, and Facebook images cache .But sooner maybe ...

Rev. James Kelly

This is a very good file shredder. It works like a charm.

Will Beale

Occational Crash I do like the app but it tends to crash.

Me Me

Brilliant Does exactly what is says... Police and MI5 must hate it

Davidm Lester

Root acess Please could you give the app root acess ,,,, thank in advance

new nexus

must have app it does what it claims.

Sean Barker

Simply brilliant! Nice job well done

logan salyers

App keeps crashing App crashes when I do a search

Franky Olivas

Andro Shredder 2 coming soon? I can't use this app with lollipop. So I'm hoping for that sequel.

Mohab Elsaid

Perfect indeed I tried a lot of applications but this the best way to delete any media permanently???

Mark Glesinger

Best out there

jo weiss

Excellent App Quick and secure, thanks.

Sibonelo Radebe

Very ugly interface Redisign and make this app effective

Yousuf Khan

Automatically killed by Android all the time. Im using no battery saver but the android system kills the application. It should create a presistant notification like other apps while working so android wont kill it.

A Google User

Works great most of the time. I really like it. However today, after thousands of uses, it crashed for the first time and the phone rebooted. The wipe file is now taking up all the disk space, and I need to know how to delete it.

Carl Willees Tiopianco

Message that cannot be erased. This App shows 1 message but I already erased all of the messages. What is the reason for this?

azim azhar

can u explain to me " Clean (wipe) free space on any writable storage" ? really need an explaination?

Alejandro Alcalde

Is this app opensource? I would be intereseted to know how it works. Regards, and great app.

david smith

Does what it says. Good, takes a while to clean first time only cleans and deletes crap on free space.Well worth using. Take the time to learn what it does.No ads. Would buy the paid version if there was one. Thankyou.

Bob Montgomery

Doesn't Work Didnt work. Tried both the Quick and Russian wipes but was still able to restore files and data using an in-phone "Undelete" program on rooted Galaxy S4 with Kitkat 4.4.2. No error messages during wipes.

Apps O

Seems Not To Work Please explain why after a wipe it is still possible to recover images. Please help.

Sobhi Osama Moaket

Didn't work,,, I installed it then tried to delete a file, the process went on and I got a massage confirming the shredding, but the file stayed in gallery but not in this app visibility

Dave Bowlin

Does as advertised Does a good job of clearing and cleaning. Fast and simple interface.

Max Power

Dont work Yeah so i permantly deleted a few files went ran a file recovery to make sure and there u go, it didnt work

Khan shamir

Samsung gs3 When performing a wipe its not only shredding the deleted files also damaging the images presently in the gallery.is there anyone experiencing the same issue. Otherwise its a nice app. Its not fair with who dont want to loose the images in gallery.

Sunny Saini

Nice App ?This app was tested on a text file containing a unique test string generated by SHA512 hash of current date. The App was executed. On switching off the phone, removing the sdcard, inserting the sdcard in sdcard reader and attaching to Windows PC USB Port, the test string could not be found by "Roadkill's Sector Edit v1.4 (for Windows)" when the sdcard was mounted as physical hard disk. This shows, the data is, in reality erased securely. Wipe Free Space test failed, though.

JoshMcGrath98

Lots of potential But please add a grid preview in the picture selection so we don't have to go through every single thumbnail

G Wheeler

Problem with marshmallow ?? Worked beautifully on my old phone but with new phone running android 6.0 it doesn't work. Hope you can help.

Me Me

Brilliant Does exactly what is says... Police and MI5 must hate it. An effective tool just like Privazer and Ccleaner

Rob S

new changes to android os won't allow it to erase or wipe free space on an SD card for my Samsung GS5 Activ

Total Tension

Fake After wiping all memories three times, GT recovery could recover 46 SMS, few pictures and many more stuff. Totally useless application.

Abhishek Ghosh

Opposite happened After wiping, the occupied space increased!!! Can anyone help?

Sam Maint

keeps crashing while doing search

0 187

Please change the app pictures, it looks so childish. i cant keep an app with a thumbnail like this. uninstalled.

Franky Olivas

Andro Shredder 2 coming soon? I can't use this app with lollipop.

pj

Ran the wipe and shred. Did a file search and showed files were gone. Ran disk digger app and several files still there. Do not rely on this app.

Jonas Karlsson

A really great program!

Don Beach

Very nice and useful app...! Thank you to the developer, this is a great app that I'd gladly pay for.

Scott L

Super Works great however I can't actually prove it does anything

Shane Hurley

For being free it's probably the best out there.

SgtSoldier

Tested and let down After using this and running multiple times sad to say it didn't destroy pics..disk digger found all that I deleted. Not worth the dl.

Raphaël Mélotte

Works great on Jellybean but I've got problems on another phone on KitKat. The wipe features says it's finished after only 1 pass even if I asked 7 and files are then recoverable. An update would be highly appreciated (or open sourcing if it's no longer maintained)

Alex Patrenko

Doesn't Wipe SMS I used a program called GT SMS Recovery to recover 3 separate messages I was using for this test. I tried multiple formats and options within this app. None worked. It claims it does, I have evidence That it absolutely does not. Try it for yourself. Make your own decision. I for one, will not use this anymore. I can only assume the file shredder is inadequate as well.

Paul Teale

Sd card support lacking It doesnt seem to work with files that I want to shred on my sd card

Leaves behind traces I shredded some photos and the app left behind the filenames and thumbnails of the photos, they were corrupted and I couldn't open them but I could still see what they were from the thumbnail and had to manually delete them.

Archangel Mortiris

I always loved this program until I bought a Samsung s7 Edge with a 200GB card. I wanted to secure delete files on my sdcard but unfortunatelly I couldn't. If you get it to work to erase files on the sdcard, it's a five star from me since you deserve it.

Harry Whitecross

Andro Shredder As is apparent from its antecedents this is the system that i used, but by Titanium.fr on a GOOD laptop OS. Even the disc compression. Now a ROOT!, and Dr. Strangelove will be happy during off hours ....

Doesn't work I shredded a folder and it was there when i recovered data.

AMO Naruto

Awesome app, how about adding Gutmann method, and a little UI improvements! Then it would be 6 stars ;-) All in all fabulous app, thanks for your efforts and keep on the good work!

Lewis Mbuthia

Works great I think this is the best app for wiping and shredding. It is really fast and comprehensive.

Bruce Carras

Not bad Really need like 20 passes but it works

Hennessy

Awesome Cleaned my phone completely out

Amazing Even diskdigger could'nt get back the files

Richard Green

This app is a con Did a free space wipe and disc digger app retrieved supposedly wiped picture. Wtf!

sundeep kumar

Got what I exactly needed. Tried many others but din't work in the way they have to.. This is just what I asked for!

Bob Fossil

Ruined by ads Seems to do the job, but now updated to include very intrusive ads. Uninstalled.

Balthazar

wtf So I selected every deleted file it recovered and set it to be shredded, it said they're all deleted and then I searched for deleted files again and every single one it said I deleted was still there and no matter what I couldn't get rid of them. ._.

Eric Westrope

Killed my Micro SD card I used the app to wipe the free space on my Micro SD card. It totally killed the card, made it unusable. I could not even access it via my recovery program in Unbutu.

Matt S

Best Goofy Ui but best shredder.

Don't work on Android 6.1 Hello, I want to tell you when I had the Samsung s4, there wasn't any issues. I would have given it a 5. I have now got the new Android 6.1 Moto G4, and while it searches it crashes when I use manual select to look through the results. Please help, or update for new marshmallow. Thanks for you're time.

Sweetiepie Righ

Freezes and doesn't work in the beginning of choosing files to shred The title says it all. Without this problem, this app would be perfect, but so far it has proven to be useless crap that is not worth downloading.

Hablah Opplong

Droid ultra SU6-7.7 android 4.4.4 Did not work for the firles I was trying to delete, they were still present and readable after running every shred method available. Sure it works fine but the files are glitched to begin with, so that could be the main cause of app not working for me.

Damo _____

Bad bad bad Can't do anything ads make my phone restart revoved so should you

Franc Foosta

NOW It Has Ads. I only installed this because it was Ad-free. If I wanted Ads I would have tried something else and better. Uninstalling it.

????? the only gripe is that it's very slow to display phone storages free - space : to : occupied - space accurately.
