If the last time you backed up your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch via iTunes or via CopyTrans Shelbee, you enabled backup encryption, this means that your device will request all subsequent iOS backups – including the ones made with CopyTrans Shelbee – to be encrypted.
CopyTrans Shelbee allows you to secure the backup of your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with a password. In addition to other iOS content, backups secured with a password, contain iPhone passwords for Wi-Fi, email accounts, websites, and some apps:
