    Avoiding Bitlocker Device Encryption on W10 Home


    I haven't installed Windows 10 Home on my new system yet.

    I do not want to use Device Encryption (not to be confused with Bitlocker Drive Encryption, which isn't available on W10 Home). Not even with a "clear" key.

    My understanding is that Device Encryption requires the following: Secure Boot, TPM, Connected Standby-capable hardware, and a Microsoft account created during installation.

    Is it enough to just avoid one of those (for example, choosing a local account), or should I avoid as many of them as possible?

    Thank you so much for your time. This website is an absolutely amazing resource. I put my specs in my profile.

    :)
