Whenever I turn my phone on (i turn it off at night), I will not receive any notifications until I swipe it an unlock it. I can wait 10 minutes after turning it on to swipe and unlock it and at that time I get the message "phone is starting" and then I start to receive notifications. My last 4 phones have been Samsungs and I have never had this issue. Is this normal? Anyone else having this issue?
Solved! Go to Solution.
The phone is encrypted, and the user's credentials are required to fully boot. You'll actually see this on other phones with Pie. Some apps won't even run until you've entered a PIN/Password.
I think it's a good security measure. Likewise, you have to enter credentials to access MTP mode.

This this encryption user selected or straight from the factory. My phone is 3 days old and I've noticed this problem, it makes startup just a bit slower and more annoying.
Thanks for pointing out the option to disable this.
SAMSUNG: You need to adjust this behavior. Turning off encryption in order to get notifications is unacceptable. At the very least we should be able to select a limited amount of "Trusted Apps", that we choose, and not just the pre-installed Samsung apps. Which even limiting to Samsung apps would be an improvement but as is I find it an incredibly poor decision to give NO notifications, not even with your own phone, messaging and other apps.
This is going to do nothing but encourage the average user to be less secure with their phones.
