    expo-random

    Provides a native interface for creating strong random bytes. With Random you can generate random values to address use cases that other APIs like the web's crypto.getRandomValues and Node's crypto.randomBytes might address.

    Installation in managed Expo projects

    For managed managed Expo projects, please follow the installation instructions in the API documentation for the latest stable release.

    You can add a polyfill for the web's crypto.getRandomValues by installing expo-standard-web-crypto and importing it in SDK 39 and higher:

    import { polyfillWebCrypto } from 'expo-standard-web-crypto';
    
    polyfillWebCrypto();
    // crypto.getRandomValues is now globally defined

    Other libraries like react-native-get-random-values may work too.

    Installation in bare React Native projects

    For bare React Native projects, you must ensure that you have installed and configured the react-native-unimodules package before continuing.

    Add the package to your npm dependencies

    expo install expo-random
    

    Configure for iOS

    Run npx pod-install after installing the npm package.

    Configure for Android

    No additional set up necessary.

    Install

    npm i expo-random
