In Titanium Backup Pro it has the option to encrypt backups. How can this be verified that it's working? It normally outputs a gz file with an apk inside. When I try to open the apk with a text editor it doesn't have any human readable text, so does that mean it's encrypted??


As per this post titanium does not encrypt apps binaries(apk). It just encrypts apps data.

  • Try to open gz files for data with any unzip tool - it will give you an error. For more details including binary analysis see that link I have provided – Anton Krouglov Feb 17 '17 at 18:33
