Hi all.
I have used EvolutionX ROM for a long time, and now, i tried Xiaomi.eu ROM on my Lavender.
It works fine, but I am surprised to see that the phone is not encrypted.
When I reboot to OrangeFox Recovery, no password is required and I can access to all data.
Is it possible to activate the encryption of the phone ?

Thank you

That's always been the case with me the recovery never asked me for password
I set a custom password to the recovery it self

Setting a password to the recovery won't crypt your phone. If you lose it, it juste need to be reflashed with another recovery, and your data are available...
Too bad for me...

Recovery can decrypt data. You should check the welcome message from the OrangeFox (pay attention to "Storage is encrypted"):
Code:
--------------------------
Welcome to OrangeFox Recovery!
[Release]   : R11.1
[Codebase]  : 2021-04-08 (b997d923)
[Build type]: Beta
--------------------------
* Storage is encrypted
* Display: boe td4320 fhdplus video mode dsi panel
* Device:  lavender
* MIUI ROM (Treble)* QKQ1.190910.002 21.4.1

* Fingerprint: xiaomi/lavender/lavender:10/QKQ1.190910.002/V12.0.2.0.QFGINXM:user/release-keys
--------------------------
Also you can check encryption via terminal (pay attention to "[ro.crypto.state]: [encrypted]"):

If your device is not really encrypted then check this:
