@micahflee thanks for this. I am sharing this with comrades in Hungary – who need it more and more even if they do not realise yet.

@micahflee There are also other reasons for phone security, apart from attending protests and the NSA. Domestic violence and child abuse are scarily common. If your phone is encrypted then if it falls into the wrong hands at least there's a chance that they might not find out who you've been talking with.
