Silent bitlocker encryption for HAAD devices

Frequent Contributor

Hi, we would like to know if there's any plans to support silent encryption with HAAD devices (it seems to only support AAD devices at the moment)?

We are starting to test Autopilot and would like to be able to encrypt older laptops that don't support auto device encryption like we currently do with OSD.

We need to to HAAD for technical reasons.


Thank you in advance and don't hesitate if you have any questions

@lalanc01 This is great feedback. We are currently investigating options and evaluating use cases.

@lalanc01any update on this? I am about to start Hybrid AAD joining laptops and enrolling to Intune


The automatic device encryption (for new devices that meet the pre-reqs) works since it's not done with Intune for HAADJ, but still doesn't work for existing/old devices where you need to use Intune.


I've sent a business impact case to MS support since it seems we're the only one who have reported this to support, so if you face the same issue, I suggest you create a support call so it increases the priority for a fix.
