Android "Encryption Config" screen confusing

Operating system


Joplin version


Sync target

Joplin Cloud

What issue do you have?


I'm confused how to load an encrypted database (created in Windows) on Android.

When I start with a fresh Android install, after linking to Joplin Cloud and opening the "Encryption Config" screen, I'm faced with two seemingly conflicting sets of information:

  • Filling the "Master Password" box with the password used in Windows makes the sync info say "Decrypting items: x/y"
  • Returning to Encryption Config, "Status" says "Encryption is: Disabled"

What does this mean?

Is encryption in transit diffrent to encryption in storage?
