The Washington Post is reporting that Google will finally step up security efforts on Android and enable device encryption by default. The Post has quoted company spokeswoman Niki Christoff as saying "As part of our next Android release, encryption will be enabled by default out of the box, so you won't even have to think about turning it on".
That "next Android release" should be Android L, which is currently out as a developer preview and is expected to be released before the end of the year.
