Google wants to bring encryption to all with Adiantum
Google has a new form of encryption called Adiantum that’s designed to bring storage encryption to cheaper Android devices without impacting performance. Currently, devices such as low-powered Android Go smartphones, smart watches, and TVs fall below Google’s performance requirements for encryption. With Adiantum, Google says that every Android device can be encrypted, meaning privacy won’t just be for those who can afford it.
Encryption is a vital defense against anyone, whether it’s criminals or snooping authorities, who want to access your personal information without your consent. Adiantum is designed to encrypt your Android device’s storage, keeping any documents or files stored on your device private and secure.
