INTRODUCTION
Quote:

Secrecy is where you can safely put your files without worrying that others will see it... They just can't.

I am starting this project since I have tried a number of Apps for secure file storage, while not finding one that best suits my expectations:
- some, like Vaulty and Hide it pro, do not store videos securely and just stores the raw file
- most only support storing pictures and videos. I occasionally want to store word documents but can't find a way.
- some produced by major software companies are simply bloated and litters temp files everywhere... That's just as insecure as not using them.

I am aiming to produce an all-rounded one that maximizes security but still ensuring ease of use and quick encryption time.
(Tailor-made for keeping your *precious* photos(or files) from your geeky dad/mom/friends/whoever-they-are's prying eyes.)

### Welcome to Secrecy.
I believe you come from XDA or Play Store, and you are interested in helping out in our project. As you may know, I started this project off with myself, but when it gains popularity, it seems that I cannot do everything on my own. Thus help is needed badly to breath new air into this project.


### Wait, I'm not professional.
Frankly, I'm not professional too. I'm just, as you think of it, a kid with thoughts. I'm looking for all kinds of support, and you may find possible roles in the latter section.


To put it simply, no one is unfit to contribute. From newbie to experienced, everyone is welcome!

### What can I do?
At the moment, I can think of the followings:
* Translators
* Quality Assurance (Testers)
* Collaborator (Code Contributor)
* Marketing advisor
* Design and Promotion
... You name it!


### What can I make out of it?
I don't work for money. It is not possible to repay you with money. However as a contributor, you could get a life-time worth of donation package. You may message me when you are a member and I'll add you to the list.


It is practically the Google Play's testers list, that when you try to purchase the donation package, Google Play does not charge you.

### I'm in! / I wanna know more!
Please contact me at thedoplgangr@gmail.com and specify the followings:

1. Your Github username (If you don't know, here's it: https://github.com)
2. Your preferred role, if any


You could also migrate directly to https://github.com/SecrecySupportTeam and get started with the source code!

Hi,

Does your app create 'containers' like EDS on Android or Truecrypt?

Nope, it simply:

1. Finds the file
2. Copy it to "SECRECYFILES"
3. Encrypts it
4. Done!

Of course truecrypt as it name suggests, is the best crypto in the world, yet I would consider it as an over-kill solution in this problem.

Besides using them depends on deep hardware/root functions and may be incompatible for a number of devices.

i am not really sure since I use nexus 4 and it sorts of use onlt internal sd. Unaware of behaviour on other devices.

I've added it to the list of suggestions.

EDIT: I have checked, and it should always use External Storage.

Thanks =)
