Encrypting data on HTC One SV

Encrypting data on HTC One SV

You can encrypt data such as your online accounts, settings, music files and other media. After encryption, you will need to enter the screen lock PIN or password to turn on your phone and access the data.
  • Set a lock screen PIN or password before encrypting your data.
  • Fully charge the battery and keep HTC One SV connected to the power adapter during encryption. The encryption process takes about an hour.
  • You cannot undo encryption. If you want to return to an unencrypted phone, you must perform a factory reset.
  1. Go to Settings, and then tap Storage.
  2. Select the encryption option for the type of storage you want to encrypt.
  3. Tap OK.
  4. Enter the lock screen PIN or password, and tap Next.
  5. Tap OK.
Encryption starts and the progress is displayed. The phone may restart a few times.
When the encryption process is complete, enter your PIN or password.
