    Encryption

    Does anyone know where the option is for encryption? On some devices it's in the security settings but I can't find it. Im on one of the leaked versions of ics.

    Thanks!

    It is there (in 4.3.605.2 but why would you be on any other leak?), but you should backup first, then factory reset and turn this on before doing anything else... I have seen people turn this on then wind up having to factory reset due corrupted internal storage. Also remember that this only effects the internal storage, not the microSD card (that is FAT32 and cannot be encrypted with the native Android encryption), and it also disables the ability to use Face Unlock and Pattern Unlock or have no unlock security, you must use PIN or Password security on the lock screen.

    IYHO, what are the pros and cons of encrypting, if I'm already using a form of security like PIN or password?

    (I assume your views wouldn't be Rezound-specific; please let me know if I'm mistaken.)

    Thank you very much, acejavelin, for the warning!
