Go to reply no.

Greetings MIUI'ers,

Welcome to the 95th edition of the MIUI Weekly Poll. Last week we discussed "[MIUI Weekly Poll #94] What Do You Care Most Before Buying A Smartphone?".

Here are the poll results.

Screenshot from 2018-09-16 21-07-02.png




Some of the best replies:
Build look and OS. eg. i use xiaomi because of MiUI. There was a day, i had to use MiUI custom ROM's in Samsung Galaxy S2 😂
There are 2 main basic requirement for me to chose which smartphone to buy. The phone may be the cheapest & even fastest; I will not buy if the the camera is inferior & when talking; the receiption is full of echo. These are the 2 areas which we cannot correct ourselves. I cannot imagine anyone could bear continue using such phones. Of course there are many other areas to look for but with these basic requirement in place, half your battle has been won.  As far as Xiaomi is concerned,  looks like you have everything on your plate, except you need to work harder on your Camera.
Battery,Camera, and Processor. also wish xiaomi to give remi 2 Os updates instead on 1. came out with oreo. so pie will recieve later.. but we need one more android Q then end update OS cycle.




This week let's discuss "Should Phones Enable Storage Encryption by Default?"

encryption_hero-650x300.jpg

First what is device encryption and why should you care? Encrypting your data means that any data stored on the storage of the device is stored in a form that can only be read once the device is unlocked.

Screenshot_2018-09-16-21-32-54-635_com.android.settings.png


Encryption is to protect your data stored on the device in case the device is lost or stolen.

Encryption does tend to slow your device down as well as recovering your data is more difficult if something goes wrong with your device.


Android-encryption-1.jpg

It is possible to remove the encryption again but to remove the encryption from the device, the device has to be reset to factory defaults.

So what is your thinking, is the best option for your data encryption? Is it worth the hassle or a waste of time or is there a better more secure or efficient method to secure your data?

Should Phones Enable Storage Encryption by Default?
Take part in the below poll and let us know your choice!

20 best replies will receive the MIUI Weekly Poll medal.

I feel like use should be given the option to choose whether he wants encryption or not. Because some people think there data is important and some like me doesn't care 😋

that will be a very good option as a new security system. most of the time people may lost control over their phone and cant secure their data in a proficient way. default encryption will be a good option for that situation

Phones should enable storage encryption by default. Data protection or encryption is vital in the event that the device is stolen or lost. I definitely opin that it's worth to reset to factory defaults. Our data in the storage is our secret which we don't pay much attention to. It must not fall to any irresponsible party. As long as the data is secured it's worth the hassle to have it reset to the factory defaults.🙊

NO, because "recovering your data is more difficult if something goes wrong with your device"

So if I encrypt my phone all that data is safe behind my lockscreen? Seems like all my data would already be safe behind my lockscreen because that's what the lockscreen is for. Redundancy. I think OEMs just need to make sure to stay up to date with our security measures. Under the Display Fingerprints scanners are a must and keeping facial recognition at the top of its game is a must. Beyond that I don't think you're actually making yourself any safer.

Just let me choose which data to encrypt. Or even better, train the AI you waste to recognize objects in the camera, to recognize sensitive data.

For me, the most important thing is not encrypting the phone, but securing phone, app and it's network traffic by limiting correct rights for app is the most important one

It's not a choice, it's a must for every phone manufacturers.
Even you'll lost your data when you forgot your password, it's better that way.

is not a waste of time, but also not a must. it depends on the user and their requirements for how they use their phone and the data they keep, the importance it has for that user, or its confidentiality. everyone has different requirements therefore an option is the best way forward

encryption is a must it helps keep your information safe but at the same time you should also be able to choose between types of encryption. I feel that I should have the choice of how I encrypt not my os or the manufacturer of my device

Encryption should be an option for each user.
I think that a good lock screen/password and a backup to a external device or cloud should be suficient.
For me, will be a problem if my alarm doesn't ring on the morning if the phone's turn off for some reason (except no battery)  and else i don't want to slow down my phone..

Yes... because we'll never know what might happen. If we loose our phones specially to thieves then we not only loose our phone but also the valuable information about us as well. If it's encrypted then we can sleep soundly.

I don't think it should be a default option because it makes things complicated for many users, but it needs to be in a more obvious place to find for security concerned people...

Unless you have top secret data or private stuff not want to be seen or read by anyone (that first of all, a hand-held device shouldn't be used to store really important things), the encryption it's a waste of time because if you lost your device or was stolen, the next user it's going to erase all the data from it to try to make it usable again.

Disabled by default and let the users decide. This is our phone so let the decision on us, gasp on very pros and cons. Our phone is part of our daily lives and nowadays we used our phones for we important files. If their goes wrong, it difficult to retrieve our precious files.
