How Do I Change My Bitlocker PIN?
When you receive a new laptop, you will need to set a Bitlocker password. Create a password
that you will remember because the Bitlocker password can not be recovered. If you do forget
the password, you can call DES IT Support and get a temporary recovery key, which will allow
you to log in to the laptop and reset the Bitlocker password to something new.
- Click on the Start button and type BitLocker. Click on BitLocker Encryption Options.
- Click on Manage your PIN
- Type in your new PIN and click Reset PIN. Your PIN must contain 8 – 20 letters and numbers (at least one of each) but it does not need Uppercase letters. Do not use any special characters.
- Click Close when done.
