    With what's been happening in the U.S. I am becoming increasingly concerned regarding my Note 5 remaining unencrypted. I am extremely impressed with Apple's Tim Cook and his stance on the order issued to them by that Federal Judge in California and am hoping that Samsung has similar built capabilities into their phones.

    Can anyone tell me if the Note 5 has these features?

    1. Hardware Accelerated Encryption.
    2. The phone deletes all information if there are too many wrong attempts to enter the key to unlock the phone.

    I hope not.. If it will keep us safe from terrorists, let the government read whatever they want on my phone, I have nothing to hide.

    Respectfully, I'd suggest you think long and hard about your statement.

    You can bet that Apple has a backdoor, maybe just a simple universal password, but they can easily get into a phone somehow. What they can't do, no matter what, is admit that they can. That's why Apple is resisting. They don't give a flying fig about rights. It's about maintaining an illusion of security.

    I'm not impressed by Cook at all. If the phone belonged to an Apple employee suspected of leaking company information, it would be wide open in 10 seconds.

    That may be....but we are getting off subject here. I was only wondering if the Note 5 supported Hardware Accelerated Encryption and unfortunately, still am.

    Don't think so. There is no limit on the numbers of attempted neither. You can, of course, encrypt the device.

    I get that it can be encrypted but what I'm really interested in finding out is whether or not Google or anyone else could decrypt it and would the phone wipe itself if they tried and failed X number of times. I'm basically looking for the same level of protection out of my Note 5 that current Gen Iphone users appear to have.

    You can set it to auto wipe with 15 wrong passwords. If you encrypted it and powered it down then on boot, it would auto wipe after 10 wrong passwords

    Does the Galaxy Note 5 have Hardware Accelerated Encryption?-uploadfromtaptalk1455906195976.jpg
