RAR for Android is the official free Win.Rar app for creating and decompressing archive files on your Android phone and tablet.

If you’ve been searching for a simple, free, and easy way to make and open archives, you’ll want to give this app a try! RAR comes to us from the creators of WinRAR, and offers a full host of features like the ability to repair damaged single and multi-part archives, full support for AES encryption and unlocking your files with a password, and it even decompresses the latest RAR5 format too!

It’s important for us to point out that you’ll have to buy premium to turn off ads or to block it from accessing the web (so it can retrieve ads). The ads are fairly non-intrusive so for the most part you won’t even notice they’re there; beyond a few ads here and there all features of RAR for Android are 100% free!

If you’re looking for a good app that supports the latest encryption and compression methods, RAR for Android is a smart choice. Check out a quick list of pros and cons down below.
