    Question about encrypted /home.

    I have ubuntu 12.04 installed on a VBox. During the install I selected to encrypt the /home folder. I noticed when I started creating extra user account that is does not offer to encrypt those accounts. Does this mean that all of the Home folders are encrypted with the same key?

    Thanks!

    For adding a user with an encrypted home
    Code:
    sudo adduser --encrypt-home (new user's name)
    Or have you already added them and would now like to edit them?

    Thanks for the input. I was just wandering why the GUI didn't offer to do this for new accounts.

    If you feel that this is something they should add, then file a bug report It'll get the developers' attention.
