  1. BitLocker Recovery Key: How To Backup to Microsoft Account Instead of Azure AD?


    Hi,


    I am trying to backup my BitLocker Recovery Keys to my Microsoft Account, but the option is not there, it has been replaced by the option to backup to Azure AD account.

    I do not have a personal subscription to Azure AD, although I can connect to my workplace's Azure account. However, the Recovery Keys do not appear for my devices in their account either.

    Ideally I would like the World to forget that I ever accessed Azure & return to normal life!

    Any suggestions, please?

    :)

    Kindly follow these steps to find your bit locker recovery key (if someone has made backup).

    1. Login to your Microsoft account. To get your recovery key, go to BitLocker Recovery Keys.

    2. Login to your Azure Active Directory account. For work PCs where you sign in with an Azure Active Directory account, to get your recovery key, see the device info for your Microsoft Azure account.

    Or ask for help:

    1. Ask person with administrator privileges on the same PC to unlock it with their key.

    2. If your PC is connected to a domain, ask system administrator for your recovery key.

    Hi Melvin,

    Here is a list of your options for your BitLocker Recovery Key

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/402618...

    - On a printout you saved. Look in places you keep important papers.

    - Saved on a USB flash drive. Plug the USB flash drive in to your locked PC and follow the instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on the flash drive, use a different computer to read the text file.

    BitLocker Recovery Key: How To Backup to Microsoft Account Instead of Azure AD?

    Bitlocker recovery key no Microsoft account

    Hi EdMakel,

    This is Wil, one of the independent advisor and an expert with Windows 10.

    I understand your concern with the recovery key for your BitLocker and I do apologize that you are having a problem finding it. But don't you worry because you have an expert here and I can definitely help you with that.

    BitLocker ensured that a recovery key was safely backed up prior to activating protection. There are several places that your recovery key maybe, depending on the choice that was made when activating BitLocker:

    In your Microsoft account: Sign in to your Microsoft account on another device to find your recovery key: If you have a modern device that supports automatic device encryption, the recovery key will most likely be in your Microsoft account. If the device was
    set up or BitLocker protection was activated by another user, the recovery key may be in that user’s Microsoft account.

    On a printout you saved: Your recovery key may be on a printout that was saved when BitLocker was activated. Look where you keep important papers related to your computer.

    On a USB flash drive: Plug the USB flash drive into your locked PC and follow the instructions. If you saved the key as a text file on the flash drive, use a different computer to read the text file.

    In an Azure Active Directory account: If your device was ever signed in to an organization using a work or school email account, your recovery key may be stored in that organization's Azure AD account associated with your device. You may be able to access it
    directly or you may need to contact a system administrator to access your recovery key.

    Held by your system administrator: If your device is connected to a domain (usually work or school device), ask a system administrator for your recovery key.

    I hope my suggestions help you. If you need further assistance please do reply back and I will respond as quickly as possible. Have a nice day.
