Open Source Android Apps for Developers: Secrets-for-Android

Apps Description
Secrets for Android is an open source Android application which is used to securely store and manage passwords and secrets on your Android phone. It uses techniques like strong encryption and auto-logout to help ensure that your secrets remain safe (assuming you use a good master password!). Context-sensitive tips guide you along through its operation, making it easy to use.

Secrets for Android is open source using the Apache 2.0 licence, so you can examine the code yourself, or modify it to your needs.

Starting Secrets

The first time you start Secrets, you’ll be asked to choose, and then confirm, a master password. Subsequently, you will need to enter this password before any of your secrets will be revealed.

If you forget your master password, press MENU and tap “Reset password”. Keep in mind however that this will delete all of your secrets! Try not to forget your master password.

Adding Secrets
After entering your master password, you see the secrets list. To add a new secret, press MENU and tap “Add”. A secret consists of the following information:

* Description. A short description of the secret, or the URL of a website. For example, you could say “Visa card”, “Passport”, “Driver’s license”, or “amazon.com”.
* Id. A name or number associated with the secret. For example, this could be the Visa card number, passport id, driver’s license number, or your login name on the website.
* PIN. Most sensitive part of the secret. For example, this could be the Visa card verification code or the password associated with the login name.
* Email. An email address associated with this secret.
* Notes. Any other information you’d like to store with the secret.

All information fields are optional. Enter as much or as little as you like. A very secure PIN can be generated by pressing MENU and tapping on “Generate”.

When done, press BACK to save the secret. You can also press MENU to see more options.
