"hough the installer does not support disk encryption, it does
offer the option to encrypt your home directory. While this has the
appearance of offering a good physical security protection, it does
not offer the same level of protection as full disk encryption.
Full disk encryption is one of several physical security features
that I have consistently recommended and supported. Why do I
consider it very important? I have stated the reasons here, and the
folks at the Electronic Frontier Foundation agree. They consider it
so important that they have a Call To Action to
â€œforceâ€ Ubuntu installer developers
to bring full disk encryption to their Live Desktop edition."
