    I'm not sure how to go about testing it, but if it shows device encryption as turned on, it should be.
    exactly. I really want to believe it is activated; however, since the phone does nothing (no pause, no dialog, no delay when switching off/on/off/on) I just cannot believe it is actually active. desktop/tablet win10 bitlocker, ios, and android all show some kind of indication that encryption is in progress and active.

    will try again in the future

    I submitted feedback via the app to Microsoft about this.

    After 12 hours with the Device Encryption toggle enabled, the Storage settings do not show any indication that the device is actually encrypted.

    Also, disabling the toggle after waiting also seems to have no effect.

    Finally, Exchange server does not report the device status. Upon initial sync with a new device, it immediately permits download of corporate data. This means that either the device could possibly be encrypting only new corporate data as it arrives, encryption is remarkably fast, or it does not actually encrypt.

    So, I will just wait for the next few builds to see if anything changes. Love the phone. Win10Mobile is super nice. But security and stability are paramount.
