Screenshot of Termux running the script in this tutorial People sometimes store sensitive information within Termux, like SSH Keys or PGP Keys. Within Android, this is fairly secure. No other app can access the Termux storage without explicit user consent. But our phones aren't secure devices for most people. Most people have a really short pin or password (or even none at all). So if our devices get stolen or seized, this data can easily be extracted. This short tutorial will show you a way to encrypt the whole Termux filesystem, so this data cannot be extracted once the phone has turned off or the filesystem is unmounted and closed again.

It's wonky and sometimes requires to restart both devices before working again, but it works.
