All data is encrypted with AES256, the app can do incremental backups, saving you time by only copying those files that have changed since the last backup, logs and reports show you what has been copied and how much space you are using, what I liked most of this app was its simple interface and being able to encrypt data prior to copying it, there are more complete Android data backup apps with built-in encryption like Titanium Backup but it is considerably more expensive.

If you want to encrypt and back up your Android data for free you could use a cloud service like SpiderOak, but it will only work when you are online.

Note: truBackup currently costs $2.99
