Facebook Using Conceal as Encryption for Android Users

by

There is an option for encryption that has been built from Facebook towards the market of Android users. The open source file encryption called Conceal runs on Java and can help out the users of Androids with their SD cards. In such cases, the users can store files and photos without having to worry about the privacy of their data. However, there is still a lot of debate as to why there is such an option in the form of open source for file encryption.

Instead, some people claim that it would be best if Android users instantly used OpenSSL as their encryption formula. Nevertheless, this holds a great disadvantage that would make the overall performance of the mobile device going significantly down. In fact, the whole concept of using OpenSSL requires a lot of bandwidth and therefore would mean that the user would have to sacrifice a lot of space for storing the software without fail. Rather than doing that, there is the option of using Conceal and sacrificing the small space of 85KB.

To cut a long story short, Conceal can be an excellent option in the field of encryption to this day and especially for Android users. It is worth mentioning that such devices are far more prone to attacks and data interception. Still, there are a lot of different things to be pointed out for making all the shadows disappear. Either way, it is needless to say that we encourage the use of VPN (Virtual Private Network) for all kinds of devices as an extra layer of security. Through the use of a VPN, you can always rest assured of the full data encryption and the concealment of your own private information.
