Step 4: Encrypt Data

Google encrypts all this data so that no one else can see them. If you want to reinforce security, in the Encryption Options section of this same window, select  Encrypt all data synchronised with your own passphrase and click OK.

Enter a password word or phrase in the blank boxes. It will be used as an encryption key.This phrase is not stored anywhere, so even Google will not be able to access your data. But point it somewhere because if you forget it, you can not get it back.
