    Hi there,

    I am a new Windows user after a decade of using Macs and I would like your help :-)

    I purchased a new Surface Laptop 2 (Windows 10 Pro) and I enabled Bitlocker.
    As you can see in the screenshot the Bitlocker seems to be enabled.

    I thought that after turning on the laptop I would see a bitlocker screen (second screenshot) asking me to enter a bitlocker pin/password, but I don't.

    Could you please explain me if I miss something?

    Thank you.

    Under normal circumstances, you will not see that screen unless Windows/Bitlocker detects significant hardware differences. Such as if someone pulled the drive and plugged it into another machine.

    I'm not sure how to set it to require a PIN each time as I've only seen it in corporate environments and didn't get a peek behind the curtain.
