Google plans to encrypt Android data by default
Following Apple CEO Tim Cook's declaration that Apple is unable to decrypt devices using iOS 8, Google let it be known that the next version of Android will shield data on devices more effectively. Android has supported user-controlled device encryption since the debut of version 2.3.4, with improvements over the years. But now Google plans to turn device encryption on by default. A company spokesperson told The Washington Post, "As part of our next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default out of the box, so you won't even have to think about turning it on."
