Secure by encrypting its Android smartphone

Since the number of thefts of mobile phones is increasing, it is interesting to secure their content. An application is out for Android smartphones designed to encrypt all data using an algorithm AES 256. The key used for encryption is derived from a password chosen by the user, thereby enhancing its security with respect to the encryption key of an iPhone for example.

WhisperCore is certainly a welcome addition for users of Android, which had hitherto no equivalent alternative available to them. WhisperCore is far from being finalized: still marked "beta", it is only compatible with the Nexus O Google / Samsung.
