To create this partition, select the mount point – /, the file system – ext4, and click the radio button next to “Fill to maximum allowable size.” Click on the checkbox next to “Enable encryption,” then type in and confirm the passphrase. OK.

Note also that you will have to input the passphrase at the boot screen for each partition that you encrypt.
