Password protect your iPhone/iPod touch backup

Issue: 

You can secure the backup iTunes makes when you connect to your computer. To do this, connect to your Mac or PC, go the device screen, and click on the box labeled “Encrypt iPod backup.” You will be prompted to enter and confirm a password. Do so, and make sure you remember it! You won’t be able to access and restore the backup without the password.
