I am running Linux Mint 17.2 on my computer. I encrypted the Home folder. What I would like to know is what this means? Does it mean that anybody trying to access my Home folder (unless he/she knows my password) from the Internet will get goobly gook and the same if somebody finds my computer if not logged in my account on the machine or if I communicate over the Internet is all encrypted? In other words, to what extent does encryption go when using Linux Mint on the computer or over the Internet?
