I recently purchased my first smartphone, a Droid X2. I was listening to the radio and heard security advice about protecting data on smartphones. It specifically said you should install antivirus software, password protect and encrypt your data on the smartphone.
Under Settings & Security it has the option for Data Encryption.
Should I set up data encryption and will I lose the ability to plug in my phone to my laptop and edit or view data on the SD card?
We have data encryption on a laptop at work. If I use this feature and encrypt my memory card I am unable to read the data on my personal computer at home.
