Does anyone know how to turn on BitLocker encryption on Windows Phone 8?
It's apparently supported but the details are a bit sketchy.

I spoke to a contact at Microsoft, and it turns out there is no way to simply "turn on" bitlocker encryption on the device itself. You can only do it by connecting to an external service, for which there are several options:
Not sure this is on topic here but from what I have seen, Bitlocker is enabled by default on Windows Phone 8 devices. It was mentioned in some MS promo stuff I cannot seem to find. It is mentioned in this Windows Phone Security post.
"Windows Phone 8 will have device encryption throughout the entire device including the OS and its applications. Designed along the same lines as Windows 7 PCs, encryption kicks in as soon as you power up the device. This system, based off of Bitlocker (but adapted for Windows Phone)"
