    When you(or someone) wants to restore their iPod, it gives you a choice if you want to restore from a back-up. You can encrypt it with a password so only you can restore from your back-up. I myself don't use it, due to the fact that I'm the only one in my family that has an iPod.

    It will put a password on the backup, so when you restore from it you will need to type the password.
