On my Note 8, I was able to 'encrypt device', to prompt for a PIN or PW to boot the phone.   I understand on the Note 10, there's a Secure Start option.   Where are either of those options on the S20?   Is it still possible to encrypt the entire device (I've already encrypted the SD card)?

 

thanks,

It appears it's missing. It seems it's on by default meaning you have to enter your pattern or passcode before the device will even boot. Which also means you won't get notifications until you unlock your phone once and for me this is a problem because this affects alarms. I can't have my device reboot and my alarm not go off. It's possible this could happen from an automatic update or routinely setting your device to automatically reboot once a week to maintain performance. If anyone figures this out, please reply.
