I thought that 18.04 still offers the option to encrypt /home but I was wrong :(
"Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and newer Ubuntu versions no longer include an option in the 
installer to encrypt the home directory. This option was removed from the 
Ubuntu installer because it uses eCryptfs, which is considered "buggy, 

It means that there is no "simple" way to encrypt your data with Ubuntu >17.10 
and a dual boot.
That's a bit security issue. One cannot ask the users to use the command line 
to chroot. The installer shall provide a way to preform these steps 
Maybe it is not that simple. maybe it won't work in some case. However it would 
be better than no encryption at all.
