Amazon recently removed the encryption of its tablets with the Fire OS 5 update, and now the company has announced that they will be bringing it back. Initially when the encryption was removed, Amazon said that the communications through its server were secure enough, but the move still had people upset. Luckily, it appears as though Amazon heard the users, and will be bringing the encryption back to the tablets. Amazon told Engadget:
We will return the option for full disk encryption with a Fire OS update coming this spring.
While it may not have been smart to remove it in the first place, it is still great to see that Amazon will be bringing it back.
