Android 5.0 L and iOS 8 Will Automatically Encrypt Data

Sunday, September 21, 2014

Apple’s new iOS 8, which launched this week automatically encrypts your data, and now Google has announced that their next major release of Android, which is called Android 5.0 L will also automatically encrypt personal data.

Google has offered the ability to encrypt your data on your Android device, but when Android 5.0 L launches, this will be set as default and all data will automatically be encrypted.

 “For over three years Android has offered encryption, and keys are not stored off of the device, so they cannot be shared with law enforcement,” said company spokeswoman Niki Christoff. “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.”

As yet Google has not revealed exactly when Android 5.0 L will launch, although it is rumored to launch sometime next month, we are also expecting to see Google’s new Nexus devices at the same time.
