I have an android s8-max device which appears to be running android version 8.1.0.

In the security it doesnt give me an option to encrypt the device, as on power up i want to supply a password before the device is usable.

From what I have read this android version should have built in encryption but I do not get an option anywhere.

Any feedback on why this is the case or any external apps which can provide me this feature would be greatly appreciated.

  • Appears to be or is it running Android 8.1.0? Have you try to type and search for "encryption" in the settings? – Reddy Lutonadio Feb 1 at 20:50
