cached offline data encrypted?

A client wishes to know whether or not cached offline data is ecrypted for PowerApps, because it concerns business data. Does anyone know the answer to this question? So far I have not been able to find it. Thanks in advance!

Re: cached offline data encrypted?

Hi @aukebriek 

Yes, the offline data is encrypted. According to the documentation:

 


Storage is encrypted and in a private location on the local device, isolated from other users and other apps.


https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-savedata-loaddata

 

I'm not sure however how the data is encrypted, or what encryption algorithm PowerApps uses. Perhaps someone from Microsoft could answer that question.

Re: cached offline data encrypted?

Hi,

 

I noticed that the documentation changes recently. They said 

The device's built in app sandbox facilities are used to isolate saved data from other apps.

The device may also encrypt the data; or you can use a mobile device management tool such as Microsoft Intune.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powerapps/maker/canvas-apps/functions/function-savedata-loaddata

 

Could I get more details about when will it encrypt the data?

 

Thanks!
