    I read through iCloud support on Apple's web site but I can't find if your personal data is encrypted.

    I read somewhere that it was, but the source escapes me at the moment.

    If I find a link to the story I will post it.

    Yes, it is encrypted both in transit and in storage.

    I thought I had read it somewhere also. I can't imagine that it would not be.

    No worries. I could find it with a search but it was linked from another site.
