    Device Encryption error


    Hello,


    I am using a Dell Inspiron 5379 laptop with Windows 10 Home and i need to have it encrypted.

    Due to an Error I still don't know if my device is already encrypted or not.


    Please note:

    - I know BitLocker is a Windows 10 Pro feature, I am trying for "Device Encryption" that is a Windows 10 Home feature.

    - After contacting Microsoft Support, I was told that this works only on devices with TPM module support.


    My laptop is using PTT, which is Intel's version of TPM, it is enable on bios:

    Windows can see it on Device Manager as TPM

    Device Encryption error f84a16a1-b3ae-4403-b8fc-96f4fae71ef2?upload=true.jpg


    However in System Information the value reads as "Elevation Required to View" while a Microsoft agent informed me that for encryption to work, the value should read "meet prerequisites"
    Device Encryption error 304b4145-2cbc-48b7-a752-2931206aa487?upload=true.jpg

    How it looks on TPM Management seems ok

    And here is the Windows Settings error.

    Please note that I have clicked on "Sign in with a Microsoft account instead" where it checks fine and also I signed out and re-sign in again. Adding a screenshot of that as well.

    Please review the screenshots and help as I still don't know if my device is encrypted or not?

    :)

    Device Encryption error

    device encryption

    All apps » Settings » System » Device encryption » Device encryption: On

    That encrypts just the internal phone memory and not the microSD, yet. Therefore:

    • All apps » Settings » System » About » More info: Please, post (just) your OS build
    • Did you try a new microSD already and did that face the same issue?
