Secret Box

Secret Box is an Android application that stores your passwords, secrets, secret details about your mistresses, credit card numbers and whatever you don't want others who might get hold of your device to see.

All data is AES encrypted and protected by your own password. Unlike other password protected notes it is the entire Secret Box that is protected, so you don't need to type the password for every note. This also prevents the potential intruders from seeing even the titles of your secrets. Your secrets are safe!

All your data is stored in an encrypted file on your device's media card to make backup and transfer between devices easy.

Follow the screen shots and descriptions to learn more and please leave your comments to help us improve the application and/or ourselves.

 

Terms of Use
This application is given to you free of charge and comes with no warranty whatsoever. We (HERA Consulting Ltd.) are not to be held responsible for loss of data or any other damage to you, your device, your family, your relationships or your pets that might occur during the use and/or presence of this application on your phone, emulator or any other Android device (real or not).

 

This is the application icon.

 

When the application is run for the very first time, you will be asked to create a new password. Please remember the password. We can't help you if you forget it! We cannot unscramble the eggs. Once you give it a password a data file for your secret box will be created on your media card.

 

In the Secret Box you store your secrets in compartments. You can create as many compartments as you want.

Secret Box has compartments and compartments have secrets.

 

Things you can do to those comparments...

 

Touch and hold the compartment...

 

It is easy to change the compartment name.

 

Touch the compartment or select View Secrets from the menu and you will see the list of secrets hidden in that compartment.

 

Each secret has a title and a body. Only title will show in the secret list above. Body is a plain unformatted text.

 

Tired of your password? Easy to change it!

 

Encryption

Hi,

I have two technical question about security. How well is Secret Box protected against brute and rainbow table attacks? Do you add a salt value to the password? Is there an do you hash the key? For an example, see how TrueCrypt works at

RE: Encryption

Yes, there is salt used.
No I won't give you all details. You password and the salt are only one piece of puzzle.

sharing

I am currently using the free version of this app. I like what I see; however, I don't see a way to share stored pictures or move them to an "un-secret" location.
Am I missing something or are these actions not possible?

Thanks,

sharing

Upon further review, I found how to share...
Great app, I gave it a 5-star raving review in the Android Market.

ICS

Hi!

I bought Secretbox+ for my Droid when it first came to Verizon and i've loved using it. I just recently upgraded to Galaxy Nexus and the app still works, but when viewing pictures it will only display the firts picture you decrypt no matter how many other pictures you try to view it will say it is decrypting them and then display that first picture again.

I purchased from Android market and would gladly purchase again if there is a way of getting the photo viewing issue fixed in another version! Hoping that there is a solution as i have not found another program that comes even close to Secretbox+ in giving me the features i want!

Thanks!
Bob

RE: ICS

Bob,
thanks for pointing it out.

I'm working on it!

BTW, this post belongs to SecretBox+ page ;).

hello/.\

I set my secret box to stealth mode....now I introduce the code ## secret code ...and is not opening it....what can I do?please help

RE: hello/.\

Here is what you do:
1. Check the name of your application.
2. Check who the developer of your application is.
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2!
4. Ask your real developer for help!

Application you are talking about IS NOT mine!

Double file

I recently had an error on the SD card file system, making the secret box database unreadable. Luckily I managed to find the database file after running the windows disk check, but this made me worry quite a lot.

I think this issue could be mostly resolved if your app automatically made two or maybe three copies of its database. This is a bit ugly, but multiple files getting corrupted at the same time is quite unlikely and it is hard to see other ways to solve this since storage integrity is in general beyond your control.

Please consider this for your next version.

Thanks!

RE: Double file

Well, you could say the same about any file. Pictures, documents, you name it.

I suggest regular backup http://gnugu.com/node/32.

The only thing I can suggest it to try restoring again.
Or take it from the old sdcard if you still have it.

From Android 2.3 to Android 4.04 on GS2

Hello !

I used Secret Box for a long time with great pleasure on HTC Magic first, then on Samsung GS2. It worked perfectly ! But I updated my Galaxy S2 to ICS 4.0.4 and now it does not work any more. It opens, shows the list of compartiments, but after, when I want to show he secrets it bugs, complete freeze of the phone, and then it stops.
Any idea or solution because it is really a great soft ? I tried to delete and reinstall but it still does not work. Thank you very much. Bye

RE: From Android 2.3 to Android 4.04 on GS2

I'm using it dayly on 4.1.2 currently. Went through 4.0.4 without problems.

Try to uninstall and install again, see if that helps.

Hi ! Still does not work

Hi !
Still does not work after install again 2 or 3 times. But I thing taht some files stay in the phone even after deletion of soft because when I install again ans start Secret Box, It does not ask me the password, it keep somewhere the password.
So my question is: where are stored all the files of Secret Box so that I can delete it TOTALLY. If you can give me the path of all the files, it would be a good thing for complete deletion.

Thanks again.

Does not work on HTC Desire X, window won't fit.

Hi,

I tried to install SecretBox on an HTC Desire X. Installation was fine but when the application starts up a message reports that the screen is to small to fit the window. The menu button is not visible on the screen.

SecretBox worked fine on the original HTC Desire which has the same screen resolution (480x800).

A fix would be most appreciated.
