Is it safe to store private data in Filecoin? Do I need to do encryption?

#1

Let’s suppose that I want to store some sensitive data: my private photos.
Do I have to encrypt them before storing to Filecoin network? I want to be sure that nobody can see them.

#2

See here: Is a file encrypted before it is sent to miners?

So that’s different from what the IPFS does. In the IPFS the data is not encrypted.

#3

Data is not encrypted neither, please refer the response from the team member
