How to set the minimum PIN length for BitLocker

Bit In this article, you will learn how to configure the BitLocker minimum PIN length with TPM hardware installed.

The BitLocker feature of Windows can even encrypt the operating system drive, as well mentioned in this guide.

If your system has a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) installed, you can set the PIN to unlock a disk. If you do not have a TPM installed, you can enable BitLocker operate without TPM compatible and using the traditional password.

In this article, we will look at how to set the minimum length for this PIN. Don't confuse it Hello PIN. The guide refers to the PIN used to encrypt and decrypt a drive with BitLocker.

2. In the left pane of the Registry Editor, go to the following registry key:

<pre> HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ FVE </pre>

3. If there is no FVE, just create it. (Right-click Microsoft, select Create> Key. Name the newly created subkey as FVE).

Now in the right pane of the FVE registry key (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Policies \ Microsoft \ FVE), right-click and select Create> DWORD Value (32 bit). Even if you run 64 bit Windows you will still select 32 bit. Name the newly created DWORD as MinimumPIN. Double-click MinimumPIN to modify its Value Data:

4. The default value for this DWORD is 6, which means that the minimum PIN length for BitLocker must be 6. You can set the price data from 6 to 20 on a decimal basis, depending on your requirements. Put the number of your choice. Click OK. Turn off Registry Editor and restart for the changes to take effect.
