One less password to remember.Besides, I cannot think of any advantages of doing an unencrypted backup vs encrypted?
I normally backup to iCloud, backing up to the computer only before I need to do a completely fresh installation (a new device or flushing previous beta leftovers). So on a computer I always do an encrypted backup, as it saves most of the passwords, etc., making it much faster to restore. Besides, I cannot think of any advantages of doing an unencrypted backup vs encrypted?
I keep getting this message when I plug my phone into the Mac, the (no longer existent iTunes) replacement App pops up and asks if I want to encrypt my backups. Is there anyone that does or doesn't? Why or why not?
Hmm, I only backup to the cloud...
iMazing lets you do full encrypted backups without iTunes.So it sounds like unencrypted backup is a must to use non-itunes software to be able to extract information from the backups?
Thinking of software like the examples below (not trying to promote them, but am just trying to understand the implication):
iMazing | iPhone, iPad & iPod Manager for Mac & PCiMazing lets you transfer music, files, messages, apps and more from any iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer, Mac or PC. Manage and backup your iOS device simply without iTunes. (was DiskAid)imazing.com
[OFFICIAL] iMyFone iTransor®: Selectively Backup and Restore iPhone/iPad/iPod touch DataiMyFone iTransor (D-Port Pro) allows you to selectively back up iPhone/iPad/iPod touch and restore iPhone/iPad/iPod touch from backups.www.imyfone.com
I prefer not to rely on iCloud just in case things get wiped out there.
You have to change your Apple ID password to reset the encryption password, I believe.I can't get it to stop encrypting when backing up. Even tried a reset of settings.
