    Default Encrypt SD Card

    So my device is encrypted so I can connect to work networks. However to comply with policies I need to encrypt the SD card. I know I saw the option and was almost positive it was under security. However I can not find this option anyplace now.

    So am I simply blind or has it disappeared?

    Take a look at this thread I started last month. I ended up NOT encrypting my device or SD card

    Thanks. I checked out the thread and there is a lot of bad information in there. My device is encrypted already and there was no change in performance. It is possible to decrypt the device.

    Maybe I am not seeing the encrypt SD option because my battery is low. Although I would expect to see the option but maybe not execute.

    Can someone point me to where they are seeing encrypt SD card? I am now unable to locate it and I am getting a report that SD card encryption is disabled.

    Sorry, I can't. I never found the option to encrypt just the SD card. That's why I never attempted it because it appeared I had to encrypt the tablet too.

    Thanks. I have encrypted the device already but I am unable to locate the option to encrypt the SD card. Samsung insists it should be under security settings but it is not there. They are now suggesting I send the tablet in for service. Very, very hesitant to do so. However I do not like the option of either being able to connect to work computers or using an SD card.

    I think it is not available in every firmware. It is in mine, MJ4, but I'm pretty sure some of the newer firmwares had it removed...I remember reading a discussion about it. So they are probably advising you as if you have a different firmware.

    I think you are correct. I was searching for info on this and came across a thread about the option being taken away on the Note in a newer firmware. I am running MK1.

    This really kind of sucks. I now have to choose between using an SD card or being able to connect to work with the tablet. Being able to load an AD card up with movies would be nice for trips. Airwatch requires the SD card to be encrypted and thinks the device has been rooted if you do not encrypt. It also appears that third party encryption does not cut it.

    What is Airwatch? Can you encrypt for work connectivity, then decrypt for travel with your movies? also, what about using a usb flash drive with an otg cable? just thinking outloud

    Airwatch is a Mobile Device Management product. No, unfortunately your suggestions will not get me around the limitations set by the product. The only option I am currently aware of that will work is to remove Airwatch when I want to use an SD card and re-install it when I need to connect to work. It is a bit of a PITA but better than nothing. Hopefully another option presents itself.
