  1. Bitlocker automatically activated....


    Today I turned on my computer to a blue screen asking for my bitlocker recovery key... this is the first I have ever heard of bitlocker. I accessed my microsoft account with a recovery key not saved there and I was without memory of ever activating the bitlocker. It is a weird thing considering I have never heard of bitlocker and didn't know it even existed!!! I had read online that after a microsoft update, that many people's bit locker was automatically activated and thus the users were unaware until it was too late. Please, why has this happened? and how can microsoft this doesn't happen ag

    :)

    HELP: Automatic BitLocker Unlock.

    Please help,
    Looking for a way( script or maybe some unknown windows command or registry hack) to automatically unlock a non OS BitLocker encrypted drive on Log-In.

    My situation: Right now my OS SSD Samsung 840 Evo has a boot password, its not Bios option nor windows eDrive but the third one, the one you need 3rd party software to activate it, had to purchase EMBASSY Security Center to do it.
    No issues here, the OS drive is locked and encrypted.

    One of My HDD Drives is encrypted with Bitlocker, so every time my PC is booted, I need to enter windows log-in password and then open my computer and enter another password to unlock the drive.
    Whats worse is that unlike the SSD that needs unlock password only after full shutdown the Bitlocker needs it every log-in.

    Windows has an option to Automaticlly unlock all BitLocker drives on boot, BUT the issue here is that this official option only works if your OS drive is also BitLocker encrypted and then log-in password unlocks everything.

    Im looking for maybe a windows Script or some Hidden command to automatically unlock the BitLocker drive.

    Even if it Sounds insecure like having the actual password somewhere in the registry, text file or script I dont care because the OS drive is encrypted and passworded.
    Also I have a TPM chip I can encrypt any file/folder so even if file is copied from my PC when its fully unlocked the files wont be readable anywhere unless unencrypted before.

    If its important im on 8.1 pro 64bit

    P.S. If there is no solution for my problem then my only choice is when windows 10 comes out to do a clean install on another Samsung 840 Evo that was previously cleared and eDrive option enabled


    Thanks in advance.

    Bitlocker being automatically activated (for learning purpose)

    I have seen many cases of bit locker being automatically activated and the user has no knowledge that it has been activated until it asks for the bit locker key , may i know how the BitLocker gets
    automatically activated without users consent ? and please let me know all the troubleshooting steps that can be done if a user has no access to BitLocker key on the two conditions 1) have access to desktop 2) have no access to desktop

    HELP: Automatic BitLocker Unlock.

    Thank you sir, ill try your solution.

    Windows Auto unlock ONLY works in case you have Bitlocker on your system drive, because if your system drive is not encrypted auto unlocking other drives means loss of security.
    But in my case my system drive is Encrypted with hardware encryption that i password unlock during boot. So auto unlocking Bitlocker drives will do fine for me.
