Android application to decrypt the backup

Post by shadys » Sun Apr 07, 2019 11:01 pm

I would like to know if there is the possibility of decrypting the files of a backup, using the smartphone.
1) I perform the encrypted backup on the PC.
2) I synchronize the backup folder on a cloud;
I wish I could read the files on the cloud with my smartphone, but I don't know if it's possible to decrypt the files directly with the smartphone.
Thank you

Well, yes. The encrypted files are simply ZIP files with AES encryption, so any app that can handle encrypted zip files should open your files without problems. Just change the *.enc extension to *.zip.
