Allows encryption and decryption of any file




You can encrypt and decrypt any kind of file using EDS Lite APK. You can also compress and decompress files within the container. This way, you can save space and bandwidth while keeping your files secure. You can also open files directly from the container using your preferred apps.


Provides standard file operations




You can perform all the standard file operations on the files inside the container, such as copy, cut, paste, rename, delete, etc. You can also create folders and subfolders to organize your files. You can also search for files by name or content.


Supports shortcut widgets




You can quickly open a folder or a file inside the container from the home screen using the shortcut widget. This way, you can access your files easily without having to mount the container every time.


How to download and install EDS Lite APK




If you want to try EDS Lite APK on your device, here are the steps you need to follow:


Download from F-Droid or GitHub




You can download the latest version of EDS Lite APK from F-Droid or GitHub. F-Droid is a free and open source app repository that offers verified and secure downloads. GitHub is a platform for hosting and sharing code projects. You can find the links to both sources below:


  • F-Droid:



  • GitHub:



Make sure you download the APK file that matches your device's architecture and Android version. You can check these details in your device's settings.


Install the APK file on your device




Once you have downloaded the APK file, you need to install it on your device. To do this, you need to enable the installation of apps from unknown sources in your device's settings. This option may vary depending on your device model and Android version, but you can usually find it under Security or Privacy settings. Once you enable it, you can tap on the APK file and follow the instructions to install it.


Grant permissions to the app




After installing the app, you need to grant some permissions to it in order for it to work properly. The app will ask for the following permissions:


  • Storage: to access the files on your device and create encrypted containers.



  • Camera: to scan QR codes for key files or passwords.



  • Contacts: to share encrypted files with your contacts.



You can grant or deny these permissions as you wish, but keep in mind that some features may not work if you deny them.


How to use EDS Lite APK




Now that you have installed EDS Lite APK on your device, you can start using it to create and access encrypted containers. Here are the basic steps you need to follow:


Create an encrypted container




To create an encrypted container, you need to tap on the plus icon at the bottom right corner of the app's main screen. You will then see a list of options to choose from:


  • Create container: this option lets you create a new container from scratch. You can choose the name, location, size, format, password, and key file for your container. You can also enable hidden volumes or custom algorithms if you want.



  • Create container from file: this option lets you create a container from an existing file. You can choose any file on your device and convert it into an encrypted container. You can also choose the format, password, and key file for your container.



  • Create container from backup: this option lets you create a container from a backup file. You can choose a backup file that you have created using EDS Lite or another compatible software and restore it as a new container. You can also choose the password and key file for your container.



Once you choose an option, you will see a progress bar showing the creation of your container. When it is done, you will see your container listed on the app's main screen.


Mount the container as a virtual disk




To access your files inside the container, you need to mount it as a virtual disk on your device. To do this, you need to tap on the container's name and enter your password or select your key file. You will then see a list of options to choose from:


  • Mount read-only: this option lets you mount the container as a read-only disk, meaning that you can only view and open the files inside it, but not modify or delete them.



  • Mount read-write: this option lets you mount the container as a read-write disk, meaning that you can view, open, modify, and delete the files inside it.



  • Mount hidden volume: this option lets you mount the hidden volume inside the container if you have enabled it. A hidden volume is a secret part of the container that is not visible unless you enter a specific password or key file. It is useful for hiding sensitive data from prying eyes.



Once you choose an option, you will see a progress bar showing the mounting of your container. When it is done, you will see a green icon next to your container's name indicating that it is mounted.


Access your files securely




To access your files inside the mounted container, you need to tap on the green icon next to your container's name. You will then see a file explorer showing the files and folders inside your container. You can perform all the standard file operations on them, such as copy, cut, paste, rename, delete, etc. You can also open them using your preferred apps by tapping on them. To unmount the container, you need to tap on the green icon again and confirm your action.


Conclusion




In conclusion, EDS Lite APK is a virtual disk encryption software that allows you to create and access encrypted containers that can store any kind of file securely on your Android device. It has many features that make it a powerful and convenient tool for data security, such as supporting various encryption formats, allowing encryption and decryption of any file, providing standard file operations, and supporting shortcut widgets. You can download and install EDS Lite APK from F-Droid
