What is ASEC file?

As the name of this extension denotes .ASEC is an Android Secure Application File, whose purpose is to hinder the applications that already exist on an Android phone from being changed or corrupted by other programs. It is an extension that is built around the Linux Kernel. In general, you will find on your Android device that all applications are installed as .APK or application package files. But, in the recent days, Google also permits installation of applications on external storage units like SD Cards by creating secure application or .ASEC Files. The files with this extension are used by Froyo, which is the 2.2 version of Android Mobile OS.

After this operation, the problems with opening the ASEC file should be solved.
