How to encrypt your Windows 10 phone
Got the new Alcatel Fierce XL? How about the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL? The Lumia 550? Maybe you got the new Lumia 650?
I know you’re wondering how to encrypt the phone.
Worry no more, we’re here to help.
Below the fold is a step-by-step guide to encrypt your Windows 10 phone:
- Go to Settings.
- Go to System.
- Go to Device Encryption.
- Turn Device Encryption On. You may be prompted to enter a PIN, especially if your phone doesn’t have Windows Hello.
- Enter a PIN if prompted. I would recommend a four-digit PIN, although you can have as many digits as you’d like. Four digits is the minimum you can have as a PIN number.
Now, you’re all set! Your phone’s data is now protected and encrypted! Enjoy!
