What's the real need behind store those tokens? If is really necessary,
that's ok, otherwise let's do not store it. Offline, OAuth2 tokens are
Or add an option to choose between store or not store like mentioned

Encryption won't fix this, worse, will add an extra level of complexity
to the application. Let's think about it, what do we need for
1. Generate a private key
2. If it doesn't have a password is worthless (for local storage)
3. Alright, is password based, let's encrypt everything now
4. Now at every inclusion of tokens, you prompt users for the password
They would remember your name forever sometimes attached to bad names.
IMO my suggestion is:
1. Leave it as is and never allow to store in any kind of external storage
2. Do not store (+1)
2. Cache and destroy it when the application is closed
4. Use encryption and make the whole application more complex
