Title: Encryption?
Post by: tjwoosta on February 11, 2015, 02:15:18 AM
I'm curious, does avast mobile backup encrypts my data  before uploading it to the cloud?

If not is it possible to specify a local backup location instead,  so I can encrypt it myself before uploading to Google Drive or wherever?

Please read a manual before asking.

It clearly is explained that it is possible to create a backup locally.

No encryption is done, instead some compression is done and https traffic used.
