HP Pavilion 15.6 inch Gaming Laptop PC 15-ec2000 IDS Base Model
Microsoft Windows 11

I only had this laptop for 2 months and I was trying to encrypt a file, but the device Encryption is grayed out.  This laptop does pass all the requirements.  I also notice that I don't have the Device Encryption option in my settings as well.  I just can't believe that this option is not available for Windows home edition.  Does anyone know how to enable this feature in Windows 11 Home?

Thank you for posting on the HP Support Community.
 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, to provide an accurate resolution, I need a few more details:

  • Could you please share the picture of the greyed Encryption page? 

Keep me posted for further assistance.
