The database backend is not encrypted right now. That said, you can put the 
database on a trusted computer with VPN access. Then you could setup a VPN 
client on Android and point the KMM app at it.

You could also look into encrypting the SQLite file, but that would not work on 
other databases. There is also the issue of where the decrypted file is stored 
while in use.
