  1. Windows 10 Pro - Turn Bitlocker on


    Hi,


    I've just upgraded my laptop to Windows 10 Pro and went to turn Bitlocker on and got this message:


    This device cannot use a Trusted Platform Module. Your administrator must set Allow Bitlocker without a compatible TPM" option in thr "Require additional authentication at start-up" policy for OS volumes.


    This is my personal laptop, currently setting it up to be able to work from it and my account is an administrator account.


    Any assistance will be much appreciated.

    :)

      System and Security, and then click BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Suspend Protection for the operating system drive.
    • A message is displayed, informing you that your data will not be protected while BitLocker is suspended and asking if you want to suspend BitLocker Drive Encryption.
    • Click Yes to continue and suspend BitLocker on the drive.

    Let us know how it goes.

    To install BitLocker, your PC must satisfied system requirements. We'd like to clarify, what edition of Windows 10 do you have? In addition, you must be logged in as an admistrator and have an access to printer to print the recovery key.

    If you're using Windows 10 Pro and meet the requirements, follow these steps to enable BitLocker.

    • Click Start. Type Control Panel.
    • Click System and Security.
    • Click BitLocker Drive.
    • Hit Turn on BitLocker.

    Looking forward to your response.
