Hands up all those who remember people walking around shouting at the top of their voice into their mobile phone? Not because the recipient couldn't hear but to ensure you looked and saw they had a mobile phone. Encryption is pretty much the same. 90% of the population doesn't need it, but if you want to look like Billy-Big-Bollocks, you let everyone know you use it.

It's the same with locks. 90% never had a car stolen or a burglar in their house but close their doors with locks anyway. Idiots.
