Is AES-256 Quantum Resistant?

I want to have maximium possible encryption for my files so iam looking for it, So is it safe to use AES-256?
Is there any good alternatives?
What apps can i use to encrypt using it (or other super safe encryption method) on android? And same question for pc

Thanks for reading and iam waiting your answers😇

There is no known way to break AES using a quantum computer, at least not in a way that would be significant faster than using a traditional computer.

It’s mainly algorithms base on large primes that can be attacked with quantum computers, you can’t use Shor’s algorithm to break AES.

You should also keep in mind that quantum computer are not even remotely close to being able to crack any encryption, and the technology might never exist.

There is a way to attack AES-256 using quantum computers, but it’s not a straight forward as with asymmetric encryption.

It reduces the complexity of AES-256 to AES-128, which probably still safe to use, and the solution could be to double the key length of symmetric ciphers.
