I'm on Android Nougat with an encrypted phone. I added a new SD card but cannot find an option to encrypt it too.

How do I go about encrypting the new SD card?

  • Did you check settings>security>encrypt sd? – aBochur Nov 17 '17 at 19:58
  • @Abochur I checked and there is no option to encrypt the card. – KalenGi Nov 17 '17 at 21:16

On my Moto G4 running Android 7.0:

  • Settings -> Storage; select the SD card (OK to mount the SD card if prompted to do that). This shows the contents of the SD card.
  • From the drop-down menu in the top-right corner (3 vertical dots): choose "Storage Settings".
  • Choose "Format as internal"

Don't know if this helps, but I'm also on Nougat (Gal. S8). I found in Settings>Lock Screen and Security>Encrypt SD Card. Good Luck...
