    The Lumia 810 page on the Nokia website says that there is data encryption, but how do you use the encryption feature?

    Read this: how to hack a windows phone | how to windows phone . From a security standpoint, it's pretty darn good. But I've always followed the phrase "If man can make it, man can break it." Eventually someone will find a ***** in the armor.

    Yes that is true, but I'd rather encrypt it than leave it alone.

    But it's encrypted by default:
    Storage

    How about the internal storage itself? Why don’t we break the phone take out the internal storage and may be at least try to steal the data? But wait, the storage again uses a 128 bit Bitlocker for encryption. The drive remains encrypted until the boot loader performs the job completely. The TPM chip which comes with the hardware is the one which manages the key for the encryption which means that once the disk is outside the hardware, you will need the 128 bit recovery key to break in the data. The storage behaves the same way as what your bitlocked hard drive behaves.

    Remember this is on WP8 devices across the board, so there is nothing to turn off or on. Except for the microSD cards. Those are left unencrypted at all times. In WP7, the microSD card was joined/merged with the internal storage and encrypted. To many people complained about not being able to move things around so they removed that "feature".

    There's a posting just a couple of days ago about how WP has met Federal security standards so that Joe Sixpack can use his phone with his federal (or Canadian) mployer.. It's right here on wp central, take a look.

    The alternative perspective is, what is the likelihood? I've been online since 1999, I keep my passwords simple and mostly redundant, and I've yet to have a hack or intrusion.

    You are more likely to be hit by lightning than killed by a tarist. Similar analogy insofar as our cyber lives.

    Very interesting, I will definitely check it out. Never question the likelihood, you could already be compromised and not even know it....
