Is Encrypting Scripts before releasing Game to play store necessary?

There is an option in the export settings to encrypt the scripts before building apk. I have checked how to do it and found out that , it requires export templates to be compiled again with encryption key that we will use to encrypt the script. I am a little bit confused on actually doing it. Is encryption really required? If so can anybody explain it step by step?

Script/resource encryption is not required to publish a game on Google Play. If you’re starting out, I wouldn’t recommend it as it’s a fairly advanced use case.

I have been able to figure how to do it out (from the official documentation) and it works fine now. It is not required but is it a good practice to do encryption of the apks before release?
