What's the best way of securely storing user credentials in android?

 I think preferences (with the private option) are safe enough, as for
one, the phone is probably only used by one person, and second, no
other application can read from private files of an app. Though if
some one has root access to it's phone, some one could use that to
read the private data. But normally this shouldn't happen and if this
happens, well, though luck :).

I cannot speak for anyone else, but I saw and skipped your previous
messages because you insist upon cross-posting to multiple lists, and I
get tired of it. Please only post to one list at a time.

You also reposted this twice within the past few hours. If you want that
fast of a response, please hire a consultant.

Bear in mind that there may not be a "current Context". The user might
have exited your activity, for example. I am not aware of a 100% reliable
way to raise a dialog triggered asynchronously, such as in

One approximate answer is to have the activity register a listener object
with the service (e.g., in onCreate()) and unregister itself later (e.g.,
in onDestroy()). The service would call a method on the listener object
(if it is not null) to have the listener/activity raise the dialog.
