Windows Phone & Tablet Instructions

Windows Phone 7.0 and Windows Phone 7.5

These versions do not have any native encryption functionality, and are not supported for use at the University of Florida.

Windows Phone 8

The latest version of Windows Phone only supports encryption of the device in an enterprise-managed configuration. There is no way to enable encryption manually. UF does not currently manage employee’s phones in this manner, and thus these phones are not supported for use at the University of Florida.

Windows 8 RT and Surface tablets

Windows Surface tablets have Bitlocker encryption installed by default. To enable, tap Control Panel -> Bitlocker Drive Encryption and follow the prompts. Make sure to keep a copy of the Recovery Key in a safe place, as it’s the only way to access your device if you forget your password.

What is this view?

You are using a dynamic assistive view of the University of Florida site. It has all the same data and features of the original site but formatted just with assistive users in mind. It has links and content reorganized to aid assistive users and has controls at the bottom under assistive options that allow you to control key aspects such as font size and contrast colors etc.
This is not a separate text-only site, it's a dynamic view that uses unique technology from Usablenet to give assistive users better, more accessible access to the same content and features as all users that use the graphic view of the site.
