Many geeks encrypte SMS, contacts, emails on their Android and iOS phones. Can I have same feature on Sailfish OS? If you will lost your phone, bad guys can read your files, change passwords in your accounts (if it save on your losted device), and have fun with your torments.

SailfishOS is Linux and Linux has strong encryption. For example look at this (kernel level encryption on a per-file basis) :

# modinfo ecryptfs
filename:       /lib/modules/
license:        GPL
description:    eCryptfs
author:         Michael A. Halcrow <>
intree:         Y
vermagic: SMP preempt mod_unload modversions ARMv7 
parm:           ecryptfs_verbosity:Initial verbosity level (0 or 1; defaults to 0, which is Quiet) (int)
parm:           ecryptfs_message_buf_len:Number of message buffer elements (uint)
parm:           ecryptfs_message_wait_timeout:Maximum number of seconds that an operation will sleep while waiting for a message response from userspace (long)
parm:           ecryptfs_number_of_users:An estimate of the number of concurrent users of eCryptfs (uint)</>
