Important
Once a custom field is encrypted, you can’t change the field type. For custom phone and email fields, you also can't change the field format.
You can't use currently or previously encrypted custom fields in custom formula fields or criteria-based sharing rules.
You can't use Schema Builder to create an encrypted custom field.

Some custom fields can’t be encrypted:
Fields that have the Unique or External ID attributes or include these attributes on previously encrypted custom fields
Fields that are used in custom formula fields
Fields on external data objects
Fields that are used in an account contact relation
