out, all you need is Andrognito. With this app installed, you can easily encrypt and hide files on Android easily

Step 1: Download Andrognito on your device

Developed by CODEX, Andrognito is one of a kind app that maximizes technology of file encryption and brings it to your
mobile phone . All you need is the free app from the Google Play Store, so search for it or download it using the link below.

Step 2: Set up the app

The very first time you open Andrognito, you have to create a
PIN, which will be required the next time to you launch the application . Also , you will also need to set up a security answer
and a security vault, which will be used to store your multimedia files like photos,videos, and also other content.

There are basically two ways that you can use this app to encrypt files, videos, and photos on your device :

One-Tap Encryption
By tapping the floating “+” icon on the app screen, you can
hide and encrypt files . The floating button will open your media gallery, from where you can either
select one item, or tap and hold to select multiple media files.

Once selected, simply tap the lock icon at the top of the screen to hide and encrypt the selected files. However, for this method, you need to open the Andrognito app every time.

Add to Basket

The second method that you can use to hide and encrypt files on Android allows you to add files from anywhere. Simply
go to the location of the file that you want to encrypt and hide from others and tap and hold on it.

Apart from the usual set of options like sharing, you will be able to see a “basket” icon on the top of the screen. You can
then launch the Andrognito app and see all the files that you have added to the basket. To encrypt the files in
your basket, simply press the “lock” icon and you are good to go.
