Encryption

HI All

 

I am new to this forum (First Post)

 

The new update 2.1 for the Playbook allows you to encrypt all your data.

If I choose this option does it mean everytime I try to use a file or folder that I will have to enter a password ?

Re: Encryption

I think the encryption is only for your backup files. They can be encrypted along with a password for restoring the files. I am not aware of encryption of files on the PlayBook itself.

Re: Encryption

 Hi

Its says " You can Encrypt all your personal data and files for additional security"

It does not mention "Back Up" at all.

So I am still  a little in the dark regarding Encryption !!!

Re: Encryption

Sorry

 

Dont want to appear thick, but this does not help nor does it answer my original question.
I was looking for a simple yes or no type answer.
IF I choose the encryt my personal data, does that mean each and everytime I want to open an encrypted file will it prompt for a password ?
