So you got here by looking for n Encrypted EditTextPreference and you wish to know how to get it done.
Just to clear things up a bit, I will give a short explanation of the concept:
N nDroid application can OR may OR better yet may I say, should have a configuration file.
This file holds the default as well as the personal preferences of the application configuration,
Made, either by the developer – default, or by the user – personal preferences (if enabled by the developer).
If the application holds some kind of a login or user/password pair,This login information OR preference (by android development language) , hence the password,
Should be encrypted and not exposed to the entire world.
I have designed and built such a preference that you can easily embed into your code.
It will encrypt the password set by the user to a keylocked file,
And decrypt the password upon code calling for usage, ie: login to a system.
3 versions exist:
- A single password EditTextPrefernce, no password verification, no restore
- A single password EditTextPrefernce, no password verification, with restore
- A double password EditTextPrefernce, with password verification and restore by email
If you wish to know more, & until the code is debbuged and up for grabs,
Please write me.
I do wish to get a small fee for any of the above 3 versions….
Please donate or flatter to keep my social contribution going as there will be many more to come.
Please see bottom for purchase…thank you.
Coming Soon: the ToolBox…
A set of easy to use, quite usefull Java classes that as a begining/ intermediaire developer you might find usefull, helpfull and a time saver in getting tasks done properly in you android application.
Any code contributions/ improvments/ suggestions are more then welcome…
Have a peacefull day.
