Security - How secure is Anki?

Dear Anki Devs,

As a very new, but an enthusiastic user, I am looking for some information on how secure the content of the cards are?

Is there any encryption for example?

That is it, that is my question.
Thank you in advance for any replies offered.


Card content is not encrypted on disk, as most users do not store sensitive material in their flashcards. If you’re thinking of memorizing passwords, they are better stored in a password manager instead.
