SHREDDIT is an Android data cleaner that securely deletes files that cannot be recovered. This tool completely erases your data and prevents it from falling into the wrong hands. It deploys an instant shredding algorithm that permanently shreds large amounts of data in seconds. This technique is specifically designed to work with internal and external device storage with optimal window (buffer) sizes to effectively and reliably slice data. The software intelligently uses the chip to fragment data to achieve greater time efficiency during cleaning. This software has no background service and hence no overhead and is completely safe in your toolkit.
Caution: Data deleted using Shredder cannot be recovered in any way.
Data Shedding Standards
Shreddit applies standards for data cleaning techniques developed over decades of research. Below is a list of the original data dump standards used by the tool (we don’t claim to have invented these standards; we just implemented them in our data dump tool for you).
– British HMG IS5 (3 passes)
– US Department of Defense 5220.22 (3 passes)
– German VSITR (7 passes)
– Russian GOST P50739 (2 passes)
– NIST 800-88 (2 passes)
– Zero filler
– a filler (safe deletion)
– Random filler (random random numbers)
File Explorer integration
While the tool has its own lightweight file explorer to provide easy access to your gallery and personal data, it also offers strong integration with your device’s built-in file manager (or third-party file manager). Like ES File Explorer for example, select one or more files and go to Share > Shreddit, the app will take all these files as input and shred them.
Preview media files (gallery integration)
The app provides a preview of media files to give you a better idea of the content you want to save. You can use the app with your favorite photo editor, such as Google Photos. Simply select one or more photos/videos and send them to the shredder for permanent deletion.
It completely deletes the media file (video or photo) from the gallery, you can see the image thumbnail in your gallery. Don’t worry that all the content of a particular media file is lost, rescan your media to sync the images with the media content.
Wiping an external SD card on a KitKat (Android 4.4) or later device requires superuser rights, which means your device must be rooted.
