    You may want to Google the pros and cons of making the SD card integrated to your phones internal storage. I've read more bad then good. Pretty sure you can encrypt your SD card regardless and keep it separate.

    Unless you have a very expensive, very fast (U3 or above) card, don't even consider doing this. If it fails, you may lose everything on your device and have to factory reset - although not too big a deal if you backup to Google and other cloud sources. Adoptable storage basically makes your SD card part of internal encrypted device storage. The card can't be removed and used anywhere else until you format it.

    If you keep the card as portable, you will NOT be able to encrypt, but you can remove the card and use it elsewhere anytime you want.

    3rd party apps may be able to encrypt some of the data you keep on an sd-card. I've "adopted" the idea that data I want secure will be kept in Internal Memory, therefore, protected by the phone's password/encryption system. Data that I'm not concerned about, music, photos, non-private documents, recipes, etc can be placed on the card. No privacy loss if the card gets into the wrong hands - other than my taste in music and where I've spent my vacations and what recipes I cook.

    With my Aurora, I chose to do this so apps would use the sd card instead of internal storage. Handy for offline music subscriptions, sure the card will eventually stop working, but not using up my phone memory is better, just be sure to back up other things stored on the sd card.

    my perfectly good SD card glitch me and I lost everything in my SD card, quite sad, but that's technology for you. Now I have all my pictures saved in the clouds as back up.

    I never encrypt my sd cards. But I don't know if apps will let it be a storage location without making it part of the phone's memory, so that's what I did. I also had very bad luck with 64g sd cards, and now only use the 32g size.

    A solution I came up with:

    Hybrid Adoptable/Portable Storage
