WARNING: Issues with this application have been reported on the MOTOROLA series of devices. After getting such devices we will try to replicate this error and fix it. Installation for those devices is not recommended until this is resolved. Please do report all the issues to us and read our FAQs:
SHREDroid forces your Android phone to overwrite deleted data so that it is actually deleted and can no longer be recovered.

Our smart phones store sensitive personal and business data such as emails, SMS messages, pictures, and our web browsing histories. Unfortunately deletion on phones is not immediate. Even after you delete your email or clear your browser's cache, the data will remain on your phone typically for days or even months, depending on phone usage. This data is easily recoverable with minimal effort by technically-knowledgable persons.

Standard countermeasures do not help, such as overwriting files with random data, due to special features of the Android's file system (namely the use of journaling). Even encryption does not help as the associated key must be stored temporarily in memory and is recoverable after deletion.

Our SHREDroid application solves this problem. SHREDroid forces your Android phone to overwrite the sections of storage where deleted data resides so that the data is really deleted and cannot be recovered.

Works fine for me Seems to work fine on my Motorola Droid 4. Saw the warning about Moto phones but took a chance and I'm not disappointed. I don't use any of the scheduling features but the wipe seemed to work as expected. The aggregate score is too low for something that is working for some users.

Not bad I see a lot of complaints, but I have had no issues on LG. Just can't confirm that anything and everything was done properly. Need more reviews. This score seems too low

User interface needs work Trialed on Samsung Galaxy S1 & 10." Tab, worked fine on both with some issues. Seems to function by filling all the empty space with files or data, could be an issue if you stop it before it cleans up. Would do better if you could select start time, and had more than 48hrs as maximum interval between scans, I woukd prefer to be able to stop the scedule and just run mamually whi I think it's needed, plus given the risk of stopping early it needs a reliable progress indicator. Finally I set 48hrs as scan interfal, but second scan started only 2hrs later, not good.

Needs improvement Needs to be much more verbose. Doesn't shred cluster tips. Overwrite method unknown. Starts randomly without checking "run as background service"; what the hell is it doing?

Marcus Rollason

READ I really do like this app, its come in handy, just one flaw that has nothing to do with the app its self. How do you know if it really is deleting? I have an LG optimus G so if anyone could give some pointers that would be greatly apperiated

Rahul Vijayapuram

Not working on micromax device I tried it on micromax a110. As soon as I click on secure delete, it's stopped responding and an error message is thrown. Pls fix it soon. Thanks

Does not work with ICS 4.0.3 Have used on Galaxy S2... little buggy but works... upgraded to 4.0.3 and now it doesn't work at all. Please update...

A Google User

Don't bother. It doesn't work AT ALL. It WILL force close and re-boot your phone, however.

A Google User

Motorola Droid 3 Safe for Motorola Droid 3 users. Took a chance, even after reading the warning about motorola phones, and app worked fine. I could barely use my phone while it was running but that was only for 30 min. Considering theres hardly anything out there of its kind for android and the known issues, this app worked just fine. Def could use some improvements but the Developers are def aware. Look forward to the improvements as this is the only app of its kind.

A Google User

Need work Resource hog. Need documentation and options but I really like the concept

Crashes on Samsung Note Installed this app as it appears to be the only app that will wipe properly, well or so I thought. First try and it crashed, doesn't exactly install a lot of confidence does it. Consider this a FAIL! Hope this app improves but for now its an uninstall

Trond Aasland

Crashes, unusable Does not work at all on HTC One M7 with latest software (Android 4.4.2, Sense 6). Crashes on press of the "Secure Delete now" button.

Kiran Shejwal

Not working on note 3 N9005 When I launch the app it opens, how r ever when I start cleaning, it stops..

Ryan Bergeron

Crashes when trying to run it. When i press the secure button the app crashses. No matter what settings i choose it will always crash. I'm going to keep it installed in hopes that it will update to work with Samsung Galaxy S5

Ron Cero

Doesn't work on lenovo phones either

Lee Miles

Ran ok on Galaxy Ace Note quite sure how I'm supposed to know if it did what it said though - but that's sort of the case with all these kind of apps :D

Buggy but not dangerous Galaxy 2S: Program crashes after run, restarts delete cycle with no UI. Will run multiple instances! Must manually delete full_xx files. Not ready.

A Google User

Defunct This out-and-out refuses to work for me. It will not shred internal and/or external data, forcing a quit every time I try. A device-specific problem, I have to assume.

Tom Schwarz

IT WORKS!! IT WORKS!!! People quit whining about this app. There are no other free space shredders. GET IT..NONE

Star Trecker

Doesn't Work On SGS 2 App fails to start when trying to Shred on internal storage or SD card. Uninstalling.


Kept stopping. I never got to see if this app even worked. It just stopped constantly with a little error message.

A Google User

Fine Check your storage while the app is running. It decreases. It works. Please include overwrite methods choices and verify wipe. What method is used?

Darrel Dent

Doesn't run on Galaxy Note I Just crashes repeatedly on my unrooted Note I.

A Google User

Sketchy This app doesn't tell you what it's doing at all.

A Google User

Keeps crashing! Please fix it. I don't have a lot of space on my tablet and this app was suggested by a few sites.

Patrick Coleman

I would be willing to pay for it if it was working but it crashes on start on my SG3

Shawn Pergande

Needs work.. Crashes on Galaxy Note 2

A Google User

HTC One S - no shred.. Fails on every attempt in any combination of settings. Poor

blake kersey

A Google User

Pramod Jain

Not working on Redmi Note Pro It force close always

Daniel Lloyd

Moto g Not working, will wait for update

Gabi G.

Don't install Force close every time. Note 2

A Google User

Worked on Moto Razr Maxx w/ICS 4.0.4! Update: Runs on its own even w/o being scheduled! Will uninstall for now and just install when needed until this issue is resolved. Using Titanium Backup I FIRST backed everything up AND backed up to Dropbox too. Next ran History Eraser to clean up. Then ran on SD and internal storage too. Big bonus would be options for overwrite method. Presume free space is just filled once and then deleted.

Chris Hall

Garbage Immediately force closes on my Nexus 5.

Basil Huffman

Crashes Consistently crashes. Rooted s5, kitkat


Fc Fc, wont do anything...

Good job! It's just that I need!


Utterly useless app! Downloaded, installed and ran this app. Thought everything was clean based off of output from this app. Then I ran DrFone which found 50 deleted contacts, 66 deleted messages, and my entire call history of 538 calls... And I delete my call history frequently. Didn't do a single thing it advertised that it supposed to do! Utterly useless!

A Google User

The best tool works likeits supposed to keep up thegood work dont change please the first time I used it it crashed then thats because the system dirty so cleaned it then made sure had enough room to open it cause the system will always say you have the amount of space but its,years of hidden trash traces that take the room I used this app the first time it cleaned 157 mb space well job done guys

Mindy Diaz

It was weird but it worked I had been running super low on space on my phone I was desperate so tried this I was at 20% left I uninstalled all the bloatware and it just didnt help enough so when I ran this it made my phone think it was was completely out of space and my phone was warning me so I uninstalled it I was pretty disappointed til I looked at the space it went from 20% to 80% and nothing was deleted that should have not been. Idk I like it

Simon Turner

Won't open Keeps saying "unfortunately shredroid has stopped". I uninstalled and reinstalled it but same thing.

Rob W.

Keeps crashing All the time I get messages that it has stopped working, even when I have not used it in a long time.

Ryan Marsh

HTC One M9 Stops working/crashes everytime I try to use it

gaille antoinette Yana

Dont work Dont keeps on stopping

Thomas Naser

Crashes on opening Does not work on Galaxy Note 5, crashes immediately after choosing options. Tried all options from none thru 1 at a time to all. Deleted

Smile Molinos

Not Compatible with Asus Zenfone It'a not that I hate this, it's more on the fact that I can't use it on my Asus Phone. If this app could be optimized on my Asus Zenfone 2, I would give it a good rating

Aakanksh bansal

When i clicks on secure delete now button, it stops working.. "Unfortunately, SHREDroid has stopped." Text appears in my Galaxy Note 3 sm-n900. Not working...Very bad response..And it is also causing my smartphone to run slowly reported by Samsung Smart manager, inbuilt apk from samsung. Really it left a bad impression...

A Google User

Almost... Almost works well, seems to have an issue towards the end of an external SD. Works, just slow. Would like to see display of current operation.

David TP

download it on nexus 4 It just crashes " unfortunately Shedroid has stopped " is the message, useless , I guess there must be a similar program for android David

Jay Croberts

Daniel Collins
