Secure Deleter deletes the file by replacing its bytes by random generated bytes and then removal the file.
It’s very simple in use, application have base navigation on top of the display and file explorer, for browse file system.
To delete file or folder just long-click on it and application asks if you really want to delete this item.
Also on simple click information about file is shown.
Application can delete all files in folder.
Secure Deleter wants device to be rooted, but if your device isn’t rooted you just can’t access system files and folders.
In our continued effort to make this work with KitKat, we have had mixed results. So, if you are running KitKat, it may or may not work for you until I get time to investigate the issues with some phones. But, it's a free app with no ads and works for most people.
Please provide feedback to the developer rather than giving a low rating so that I can fix whatever is wrong. Also feel free to suggest improvements. Thank you.
It is possible to forensically extract information from a smart phone using mobile forensic tools such as Cellebrite and XRY even after it has been deleted. This utility can help to prevent that from happening by sanitizing the free space on a phone. Similar functionality can be found on desktop machines using utilities like CCleaner, Eraser, and File Shredder. If you are afraid of the government peeking at your phone and extracting and reconstructing deleted files, this is the app that you want.
This application does not delete files or clean the cache. Use other tools such as ES File Explorer and AVG Cleaner to delete files and clean the cache. Then use this utility to sanitize the free space. The free version of this application does not sanitize database areas such as contacts, phone logs, or SMS text messages. Look for a pro version in the future that may perform a more thorough sanitization.
Although we cannot guarantee that all free space will be sanitized, this application finds all of the free space that Android will give us in three primary areas where data is normally stored and overwrites it as completely as the phone will allow:
1. System - This is the protected data area shared by all applications.
2. SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and on others it is emulated SD Card space.
3. Optional SD Card - On some phones this is the actual SD Card and many other phones do not have this space. Samsung phones typically put the real external SD Card here.
To run the application:
1. Make sure that the phone has good battery/wall power.
2. Put a checkmark next to the sections of memory to sanitize.
3. Press the Start Wiping button.
4. Do not use the phone while the application is working.
The status area will indicate how the process is going.
Some have complained that after a wipe, they sometimes still see old files that were deleted using Hexamob or other similar apps. In my investigation I have found that the overwhelming majority of files are overwritten but occassionally one file is left intact. This could occur if Android does not allow us to write to every free sector. Watch the statistics as it is overwriting to see if the free space count goes to 0 as it is writing. Also run the app more than once to get more thorough wiping since SD cards rotate their sectors in and out of service.
Many SD cards rotate blocks of memory in and out of use for wear leveling. As a result, it is possible that after sanitizing memory there could be some blocks that get rotated back in to use that were never sanitized. To mitigate this possibility, run this application twice which statistically will usually hit all blocks of memory.
This application has not been tested on all phones. Please provide feedback to the developer about any problems. It has been found to work on Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, S4 and Victory phones, the HTC Arrive and others. System space takes several minutes to sanitize and 8GB SD Cards can take up to half an hour. If the application is aborted before it finishes, there may be large files left on the phone. If this happens, simply reboot the phone and bring the application up and it will automatically look for these files and delete them at startup.

Frequently asked questions:
- Why does CCSWE App Manager require root access?
Unfortunately the Android security model does not make it possible for one application to enable/disable components for another application. This makes sense for standard applications because you wouldn't want a competing application to be able to disable yours (ie: install MySpace and it disables Facebook). That is why CCSWE App Manager requires root permissions in order to achieve this.
With this tool you'll be able to completely destroy your personal data, and nobody will be able to recover them! This is useful when you need to sell your mobile phone to someone else that you don't really know.
*** READ CAREFULLY ***
The app requires a lot of power during its process of deletion, so please don't use your device while executing it or the device may crash due to lack of RAM.
In order to make sure that data can't be recovered, we suggest you to not use the faster steps
If something is going wrong, please don't rate us with one star, feel free to contact us, and we will solve your problem.
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.

Deletion without trace in three easy steps:
You might think you've deleted those photos and videos on your mobile device, but anyone can restore those manually deleted files from the free space on your device until the free space itself has been overwritten using secure deletion algorithms.
It takes just three simple steps to overwrite that free space using patented security standards, making it impossible to rescue any deleted files.
First, open iShredder™
Second, select a secure deletion algorithm
Third, start the deletion process
iShredder™ surpasses international standards used by state and military organisations in secure file deletion with a wide selection of tried-and-trusted state-of-the-art deletion algorithms. Each algorithm has been analysed by authorities and independent organisations to make sure it really does what it says on the tin – data destruction beyond redemption.
Depending on the edition, the iShredder™ package comes with deletion algorithms such as DoD 5220.22-M E, US Air Force (AFSSI-5020), US Army AR380-19, DoD 5220.22-M ECE, BSI/VS-ITR TL-03423 Standard, BSI-VS-2011, NATO Standard, Gutmann, HMG InfoSec No.5, DoD 5220.22 SSD and others.
- secure wipe of free disk space
- 5 erasing methods included, such as DoD 5220.22-M E, US Army AR380-19, HMG InfoSec No.5, etc.
- modern and secure erasing methods for flash memory (SSD)
- preinstalled standard deletion methods
- technical support by e-Mail
* Select any combination of folders and files easily.
* Works in the background, so you can continue working after selecting the files to be shred.
If you rate lower than 5, please provide a comment. I'd love to know what I can do to perfect this app.
Method of operation:
The application will overwrite the file once with random data. It is not necessary to overwrite multiple times on SSD. The "ghost tracks" from magnetic media simply do not exist on solid state storage. Even on modern magnetic media it is not a practical concern anymore because of enormous data densities.
Now, what is a practical concern, is that with some SSD drives, there exists transparent methods to balance the writes over the media, as to wear out the memory evenly. This might cause the disk to actually write the new replacement bytes to a different place than intended. Nevertheless the allocation table will still be scrambled, so that the original inode does not point to the old block anymore.
In spirit of keeping everyone happy, there will be some near future releases thought!
1. I will add settings so that you may choose from different patterns and number of iterations.
2. I will add an option to completely wipe all empty space on a drive.
Now, install it and enjoy! No more evil network permissions for ads!

When you put down a wish,dissatisfaction,a complaint,shopping memo,and anyway,want to write it !
Remo File Eraser app will securely erase all your sensitive files and folders forever from both the internal and external memory of your Android Phone and Tablets for free!!
This simple to use app will delete all the targeted files and overwrite them by random numbers and characters thus making the recovery impossible by any means. Remo File Eraser app incorporates 3 shredding patterns for erasing the files completely.
Every user has specific requirements! With this concern, Remo File Eraser has grouped these various shredding patterns to provide data security in three different levels; so that you can choose one among these as required:
- Low Level: Overwrites the files with zeroes and is specifically used for files that are of less concern. For example, if you want to erase 10kb of files, then the target area will be overwritten with 10kb.
- Medium level: Overwrites the files only with random characters.
- High Level: Overwrites the targeted files with three different passes - first with a fixed value (0×00) once, then its compliment value (0xff) once and finally the random values once, thus completely eliminates all chances of recovery.
