Encdroid is a file manager application for Android devices to keep your files encrypted on Dropbox or the local storage of the device.
It is compatible with EncFS so volumes created with Encdroid can be accessed on Windows/MacOS/Linux desktop and laptops and vice versa.
Supported operations include creating new volumes, importing existing files into volumes, opening files inside volumes by launching the chosen viewer application, creating directories, cut/copy/paste files and directories from one location to another within a volume, renaming files and directories, exporting files and directories from a volume onto the local device etc.
Explanation of permissions:
Storage: Used for viewing and exporting files to the SD card.
Network: Needed to access Dropbox.
Prevent sleeping: Some encryption operations can run for a long time and take even longer if the device is sleeping so Encdroid temporarily prevents the device from going to sleep.
Since Encdroid is open source, it is possible for anyone to audit the source code by visiting the GitHub repository or even build their own copy of the application for increased peace of mind. See hzzps://github.com/mrpdaemon/encdroid for the source code and contribution information.

Encdroid user reviews :
Excellent program to help keep confidential files secure! I am able to update in Windows, Linux and Android.
I have been using EncFS encryption in Dropbox for years, to keep a private, secure, shared folder I called my “vault”. Encdroid now lets me access my vault from my Android phone! Fantastic!! I had to upgrade my vault to use the latest EncFS version (1.7.4), which involved creating a new EncFS volume under Linux (with full paranoid settings) and copying all the (decrypted) files from the vault into the new volume, then replacing the vault with the new volume in Dropbox. I also had to rename a bunch of text files to all have the “.txt” suffix, so that they would open on Android. Apart from that, very smooth sailing. Would be really nice if Encdroid had a “Lock after timeout” setting, so that if I forgot to lock manually it would lock automatically after a time, protecting my files from exposure if my phone were stolen.
