I highly doubt that Visa and MasterCard would allow square to process payments if it wasn't encrypted. All processors are required to meet minimum PCI standards for encryption in order to be able to process payments. I used to work for a large credit card company in their fraud analytics group. I still work in that industry for my "day job" (do lawn care part time), just not in credit cards anymore. I have a lot of knowledge in information security and fraud detection and prevention. If I weren't comfortable with it, I wouldn't use it.
