Re: Phone encryption not working.

Yeah, after updating to oreo, you'll have to encrypt it again. Head to settings < security < encryption and credentials < encrypt phone. If you already did it but if it did not ask any password while power on your phone then head to settings < security and location < screen lock < then set up pin or password for lock screen. When you will doing this, a pop up will appear, it will ask you whether you want to set pin during power on your device and tap yes.

Screenshot_20180705-165832.pngEncryption works only in pin or password mode so if you are using pattern lock then encryption will not work

I attached some screen shots, how I did it in my r1. Note - encryption will not work in pattern lock.
