    I use mi5 with fingerprint unlock and password. When i launch twrp rom it doesn't ask me for a password. I can see /data and its content.
    In the logs of twrp, i saw something as 'using default password to unlock'.
    I'm confused.

    You can encrypt mi5 and use password in twrp

    It should be already encrypted.
    If i go in twrp, no password was asked

    I am also looking for twpr with capacity of password set-up. It makes the phone more safer with installed twpr on it.

    This is off topic. I'm asking why TWRP doesn't ask me for a password and why /data partition is visible by it. Phone should be encrypted

    Yup/
    Just went through TWPR for that reason - no need to get it encrypted or password - still able to flash other supported version and mount to Data
