Encrypting data on HTC One VX

Encrypting data on HTC One VX

You can encrypt data such as your online accounts, settings, music files and media. The available encryption options will be presented to you in the Storage menu. Once you have encrypted storage using one or more of the encryption options, you will need to enter your screen lock PIN or password each time you power on your phone to access the data. Encrypted data will only be visible on the device and can’t be exported or read from other sources such as a PC.
Important:
  • Set a lock screen PIN or password before encrypting your data.
  • Fully charge the battery and keep HTC One VX 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.
