  • Hi,

    BitLocker Drive Encryption is available only on Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Enterprise.

    For best results your computer must be equipped with a Trusted Platform Module (TPM) chip. This is a special microchip that enables your device to support advanced security features.

    You can use BitLocker without a TPM chip by using software-based encryption, but it requires some extra steps for additional authentication:

    Use the Windows key + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command, type gpedit.msc, and click OK.

    Under Computer Configuration, expand Administrative Templates.

    Expand Windows Components.

    Expand BitLocker Drive Encryption and Operating System Drives.

    On the right side, double-click Require additional authentication at startup.

    Select Enabled.

    Make sure to check the "Allow BitLocker without a compatible TPM (requires a password or a startup key on a USB flash drive)" option.

    Click OK to complete this process.


    Also, you could enable BitLocker using powershell referring to the following link:

    Enable-BitLocker

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/bitlocker/enable-bitlocker?view=win10-ps

    Hope it could be helpful.
