@ionic-native/sqlite/ngx - SQLite with key

Hi all,

I am currently developing an Ionic 5 with Angular project and I came across the native sqlite where;

@ionic-native/sqlite - v5.27.0

Code Snippet:
name: test.db,
location: ‘default’,
key: '1234567’

am just wondering what does the “key” does? Have tried to set the key, and able to extract the SQLite .db file and open in the DB Browser Tool.

I would like to encrypt the db file, or set it with a password at least but it seems such information is hard to come by.

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you all in advance !
