Android File Encryption is Easy and Powerful with BestCrypt Explorer

16 Oct 2018

HELSINKI, Finland – October 16, 2018 - Jetico, long-trusted developer of world-class data encryption software, has announced the release of BestCrypt Explorer, a mobile file manager on Android and an extension of BestCrypt Container Encryption. Jetico’s Android file encryption app is now available for free download on Google Play.

“Throughout the digital world, our privacy is constantly threatened by hardware theft, cyber attack and unauthorized account access.” says Jetico CEO, Michael Waksman. “BestCrypt Explorer is a welcome addition to our family of data protection products, continuing Jetico’s mission to ensure a safer file storage ecosystem for our customers – on computers, mobile devices and cloud.”

Built on Jetico's guaranteed backdoor-free encryption, BestCrypt Explorer offers a familiar Android file manager app structure, right at your fingertips. Create and access your own separate storage space for data encryption on Android. Any file can be selected and encrypted. 

Once files are moved to your own BestCrypt secure storage, they can only be accessed after entering the proper password. Following that step, you can then safely use your sensitive files for any purpose with BestCrypt Explorer’s own integrated viewer – view photos and videos, listen to music, read documents or create new files. 

Mr. Waksman explains, “BestCrypt Explorer’s own integrated viewer is an especially nice feature. So other apps or programs on your device are blocked from snooping on your private data.” 

More than just an Android file manager, BestCrypt Explorer is also an extension of Jetico’s BestCrypt Container Encryption, protecting your most precious files on both traditional and modern technologies – from laptops and desktops to mobile and cloud. In addition to using BestCrypt across Windows, Linux and Mac computers, now you can access BestCrypt encrypted containers on your Android mobile device as well. 

For encrypted cloud storage and a fully integrated experience, BestCrypt users can upload their encrypted storage to cloud services like Dropbox or Google Drive. Then use BestCrypt to securely access sensitive files from other computers, tablets and mobile devices. With BestCrypt ensuring data protection during transfer, files exchanged between all your devices are now protected.
