[Feature] Android app: Add option to create vault in Obsidian's app-specific directory

When the vault is created in /sdcard all files and images inside it are accessible to other apps —the image files in vault become visible in gallery app and file manager app.

From my knowledge this is not a problem if the vault is created in Obsidian’s app-specific directory on Android.

Problem: Shared storage allows other apps to read ObsidianMD vaults.

Current workaround: None. Fatal.

Solution: Allow the paid sync service to sync to the app’s data storage area, which is not readable by other apps.
