Intune – Require Bitlocker PIN for Windows 10 1703

This post will show how you can use Intune to deploy a Device Configuration Profile to an MDM enrolled Windows 10 1703 machine to require a startup PIN for Bitlocker. It will also show the end user experience prompting the user to configure Bitlocker and set a PIN.

In the Intune portal in https://portal.azure.com , select Intune > Device Configuration > Profiles > Create profile


Select Windows 10 and later as the platform, select Endpoint protection for the profile type, then click on Configure.

Under Windows Experience, select Require next to Encrypt Devices.

Select Enable next to Configure encryption methods if you would like to configure the encryption methods.

Select Enable next to Additional authentication at start up.
Compatible TPM startup – Do not allow TPM
Compatible TPM startup PIN – Require startup PIN with TPM
Compatible TPM startup key – Do not allow startup key with TPM
Compatible TPM startup key and PIN – Do not allow startup key and PIN with TPM


You can read more about these startup policies in this GPO “Require additional authentication at startup” description:


If the Additional authentication at startup settings are configured incorrectly, then a user may see “The Group Policy settings for Bitlocker startup options are in conflict and cannot be applied. Contact your system administrator for more information.”


Back to Intune – Configure the Assignments and select a group that will receive the Bitlocker policy


The Windows 10 1703 machine will get a notification saying that the machine needs Bitlocker configured.





The user is prompted to enter a PIN:




After Bitlocker has finished encrypting the drive and the machine is restarted, the user will be prompted to enter a PIN to unlock the drive at startup:
