    What are the risks of encrypting personal data in Android ICS?

    I would like to encrypt a few personal data in my phone and would like to take no risks of something going wrong. Is the phone’s encryption method safe?

    Encrypting data in the phone comes with risks. But if you perform the encryption safely, there’s nothing to worry. If you forget your PIN or password after encryption, you won’t be able to decrypt the data later. If the battery isn’t full charged, the phone might go off while encryption is being done. The encryption time should be scheduled to an hour more to be on the safe side. Do not interrupt encryption process under any circumstances or you will lose data.
