Is a database encrypted on one platform accessible on another?


#1

Hi,

Can you confirm that if I create and encrypt a database on one platform, say Windows, and then copy it to an Android device, will I be able to access the database on the Android device?

Cheers

Hello @Mark_Wassell

Yes, a SQLCipher database can be created on one platform and opened on a different platform. This does require that your configuration settings for the database (if you change anything) are consistent across platforms (e.g., kdf iteration length, cipher, etc.)
