Google Drive tests feature that may let users encrypt files offline
Storing files in Google Drive might be good for saving space on your computer, but it’s never been the most secure option, since Drive doesn’t support encrypting individual files. It looks like that might be changing in the future, though, as a teardown of the latest app update reveals work towards adding support for encryption.
Based on strings found within version 2.20.441.06.40 of the Google Drive app, Google is poised to introduce a feature that will let users encrypt Drive files saved on-device, as well as download and open encrypted files in Drive.
