April 30, 2018
Protectstar Inc. has released the new iShredder Android 6.0, their secure data deletion app for Android smartphones and tablets. By simply running the iShredder app on any Android device, anyone can securely erase data, and even clear all empty free space, ensuring all personal data: including passwords, videos, photos, and more can never be recovered. The app is perfect for use before donating or selling a used Android device.

With military grade security the iShredder Android app is the #1 app and most popular data eraser. Using certified deletion algorithms, iShredder securely deletes data, rendering it irretrievable. It uses data shredding techniques, that go beyond international standards set by state and military organizations, for secure data deletion. iShredder's data erasing algorithms have been analyzed by government authorities, and independent security organizations, to ensure the app securely removes all personal data on your device.

"When a user deletes personal files, such as photos and videos from their device, they may think they're gone for good. The truth is, they can be recovered using any one of a number of utilities for Android. Those files aren't really gone until they have been securely erased using advanced deletion algorithms," says Chris Bohn, CEO of Protectstar.

On Google's Play Store, the popular iShredder Android is able to securely erase photos, contacts, text messages (SMS/MMS), call logs, WhatsApp, thumbnails, personal files and folders, as well as a secure deletion of mounted devices such as external usb sticks, sd cards, and more.
