    Hi guys

    I was just about to encrypt my phone (samsung s5, lollipop) but before encrypting it the phone is asking me to set the lock screen type.

    I always have my lock screen set to 4 digit pin but the only options it gives me are password or fingerprint. All the others are greyed out and say “Disabled by administrator, encryption policy, or credential storage”.


    Am i really stuck with having to put in a 6 digit password every time i want to use my phone just to be able to have it encrypted?


    If so i can understand why people are annoyed with their new phones with lollipop pre installed having encryption enabled by default.
