    BitLocker not requiring password at boot. (Without TPM)


    I've recently installed bitlocker on my computer. Although windows says my C: drive is encrypted; I am not asked for my decryption password when i boot the computer. I get put straight into the login screen. I've done the necessary steps to enable bitlocker without TPM but maybe i missed something. Help please.

    It should require TPM or USB or password/PIN.

    What does powershell command manage-bde -status c: say?
    Code:
    PS C:\WINDOWS\system32> manage-bde -status c:

    I want to think that your BitLocker encryption policies are in need to be reconfigured currently.

    Access the Run menu > Windows Key + R

    Type gpedit.msc and press Enter.

    Navigate the policy hive on the left hand column




    Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\BitLocker Drive Encryption\Operating System Drives




    This may be the policy we are looking for. Enable it.

    Do not enable complexity if your password does not meet the requirements or else you may lock yourself out of the system.
