Do not store them on the device. Store them off-device, generate a
token, and store the token in AccountManager[0]. Then, if you must,
cache them as appropriate (using getCacheDir[1] or similar).

0: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/accounts/AccountManager.html
1: http://developer.android.com/reference/android/content/Context.html#getCacheDir()
