Re: No, it's not settled

Saved as plain text? Well thats a pretty poor system. Even on the old MS phones I did encryption for the only time anything was decrypted was at display time. After the display the unencrypted was destroyed. Of course there is a time when it exists decrypted but if you have access to the device (by lookign over someones shoulder or mugging them) then there is not much that can be done
