  1. bitlocker key and password is missing


    Hi,

  3. why doesn't my bitlocker make me type a password?

    Hi,

    I understand that you have issue with Bitlocker password. I will certainly assist you with this.

    Please provide us below details for better assistance,


    • Is your Bitlocker enabled on your system?

    • Have you made any changes on your system before this issue?

    Please follow these steps and check if that helps.

    Method 1: I suggest you to start the BitLocker Device Encryption service.

    Follow the below steps:

    1. Press Windows key + R from the Keyboard.

    2. Type services.msc and hit Enter.

    3. Search for BitLocker Device Encryption service.

    4. Double click on BitLocker Device Encryption service and click on Start button.

    5. Click on the dropdown list and set the Startup type to Automatic.

    If the issue persists then change the password and change the settings on how drive is unlocked at startup.



    Hope it will fix your issue. Please let us know the status of your issue.
