Fix Applied for Issue regarding Android Device Encryption Prompt
Some users with unencrypted, stock Android devices were prompted to encrypt their devices as of the SFU Connect upgrade on August 23, 2014. For users who chose to encrypt their devices, the syncing of data worked as expected. However, some users did not wish to proceed with doing so for various reasons and, consequently, were not able to sync data. To address this, a fix was put into place on the afternoon of Wednesday, September 3, 2014.
