With version 7.0 for Android, the company continues its journey of surpassing standards and delivering an even more powerful and user-friendly experience.

New design and technical improvements

The technical performance of the app has been significantly optimized. It is now more powerful and stable. It is ensured by the possibility of running in the background and an improved deletion process. In addition, iShredder™ Android 7.0 is optimized for the latest Android versions.

Advanced features

A helpful advance of iShredder™ Android 7.0 is the connection to MY.PROTECTSTAR. "In this way, we enable our users to have seamless integration and centralized access to all their licenses and apps, as well as the future provision of innovative functions," says Niklas Mayle, Head of Innovation at Protectstar Inc.

Secure and irreversible deletion

iShredder™ Android 7.0 offers over 20 recognized deletion algorithms to ensure secure and irreversible deletion of data. In addition, log files, and other temporary files containing personal data, can be safely cleaned.

Secure erasure according to international standards. After each erasure, iShredder™ creates an erasure report that serves as proof of the erasure. These reports comply with data protection standards such as GDPR, U.K. Government InfoSec No. 5, Department of Defense, and NIST 800-88 and can be archived.
