    Bitlocker Recovery issue


    So sick and tired of trying to get a human on the phone because none of the "answered questions" hold no value for the issue I have, only to be auto-diconnected because it wants me to use the online FAQ's. I have a laptop which shows under my registered devices on Microsoft. However when I go to access the Bit Locker Key it says I have no registered devices. I have the old key before I had to wipe the laptop but it has since changed, I have tried to look on another device to see the key to no avail.This is getting super frustrating and down right ridiculous. Microsoft... get your customer supp

    BitLocker Recovery Account issue

    Hello,

    I have a coworker who after rebooting their laptop, received a blue screen showing a BitLocker Recovery window, where its prompting the user to enter a recovery key in order to access their laptop. This is the first encounter I have seen asking for bitlocker recovery for a user, as we never had an issue where if it did lockout a user, it never asked for a bitlocker recovery key.

    We then checked the url: My Account to see if their was a bitlocker recovery key.

    Their was no key to use. (attached screenshot)

    So we are not sure how to proceed from here. We had another IT user tried various alternatives such as rebooting, attempting to safe mode with no luck.

    Asking here for any suggestions on what to do, as this is our first experience on bitlocker recovery.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are getting BitLocker recovery key prompt, every time you turned on the laptop. We appreciate your effort in troubleshooting the issue.



    Ideally, in Windows 10 BitLocker doesn’t come by default. It could be possible that the BitLocker got enabled during some updates, either Windows update or PC manufacturer update.



    As you have mentioned that you are forced to input the BitLocker recovery key, which is incredibly a tedious process.



    Meanwhile, we would suggest you to disable the secure boot from the BIOS and check if you are able to bypass the BitLocker. Please refer the steps in this article:

    Disabling Secure Boot
