Encrypted Shared Preferences

Pub

This plugin stores Shared Preferences as encrypted values. It is decrypted when retrieved. You could use this side by side with regular Shared Preferences.

Usage

Instantiate class:

EncryptedSharedPreferences encryptedSharedPreferences = EncryptedSharedPreferences();

Save value:

encryptedSharedPreferences.setString('sample', 'Hello, World!').then((bool success) {
    if (success) {
        print('success');
    } else {
        print('fail');
    }
});

Retrieve value:

encryptedSharedPreferences.getString('sample').then((String value) {
    print(value); /// Prints Hello, World!
});

Remove value:

encryptedSharedPreferences.remove('sample').then((bool success) {
    if (success) {
        print('success');
    } else {
        print('fail');
    }
});

Clear values:

/// Clears all values, including those you saved using regular Shared Preferences.
encryptedSharedPreferences.clear().then((bool success) {
    if (success) {
        print('success');
    } else {
        print('fail');
    }
});

Reload

encryptedSharedPreferences.reload();

Optional: Pass custom SharedPreferences instance

/// You can pass a custom SharedPreferences instance (e.g. A newer version of SharedPreferences)
final prefs = await SharedPreferences.getInstance();
EncryptedSharedPreferences encryptedSharedPreferences = EncryptedSharedPreferences(prefs: prefs);

Access internal SharedPreferences instance

// You can access the internal SharedPreferences instance to invoke methods not exposed by regular EncryptedSharedPreferences
SharedPreferences instance = await encryptedSharedPreferences.getInstance();
int counter = 1;

/// Access SharedPreferences' setInt method
await instance.setInt('counter', counter);
