As a user, I would like the option of encrypting all of my Sync data in such a way that my data is completely unrecoverable if I lose my password.

Summary: [story] Optionally encrypt all user data → [story] As a user, I would like the option of encrypting all of my Sync data in such a way that my data is completely unrecoverable if I lose my password.
Added benefit, "so that Sync protects my privacy and security."

Also rewrote for clarity: 

"As a user, I would like the option of encrypting all of my Sync data in such a way that my data is completely unrecoverable if I lose my password."

"As a user, I want the option to encrypt my Sync data so that only I can decrypt, even if that means its unrecoverable if I lose my password, so that Sync protects my privacy and security."

This appears to have been the case for the previous version of sync.

This does not appear to be the case for the new version of sync.

Why was this decision reversed? If the new sync IS as secure as the old sync, where is this documented.
