    I hope because I can't add my exchange account due to this now being a security feature.

    Would you please stop posting answers based on your knowledge of any other Android phone than the PRIV?

    Android has been highly customized by all manufacturers and offer very different features and even remove some stock ones. So please stop the confusion.

    Thanks

    I actually find it good information. She's providing an insight into where we should be looking for the setting and she's also letting us know that it's something that could/should be available. This can be helpful if somebody is to report missing/requested features to BlackBerry.

    I think of myself with this; I'm constantly asking my friends who have been using Android phones for years about features and how to do certain things. None of them have a Priv. So you telling her to stop is like me deciding not to ask them anything about Android because they don't have a Priv. And that is just silly.

    Is there a way around this issue? I can't use blackberry hub for my exchange account due to the device not encrypting SD card

    Not yet. I expect this to be fixed in a firmware update.

    You can install mail wise. That's what I'm using right now.

    If you chose to do this and go around your IT departments policies, make sure not to keep any work related files on your SD card.

    I bought the Nine mail app. It's encrypted so it passes our corporate security policy. Works fantastic. I won't be going back to the hub.

    I don't keep any work related files on my phone. Mainly just use my phone to check email.

    I read somewhere that when your android phone uses encryption to secure itself there is a self destruction that occurs to the data after so many failed attempts. When your external SD card is also encrypted this can become a security problem. SD cards when encrypted offer no ability to destroy the data or limit the attempts of the attack. The SD card then becomes highly compromised to "brute force attacks". Being that the SD card and system use the same Encryption key if they crack your card, they crack your blackberry.

    It's BlackBerry, so some time between now and 2077.

    No SD card encryption?

    The hub doesn't support encryption so it doesn't pass certain enterprise policies?

    What kinda of enterprise secure smartphone is this?

    Very annoyed!!!

    My PRIV has been fully updated and I still can't encrypt the SD card, so why are you saying this is fixed? If you are going to post something like that you need to provide more details. Thanks.

    This has NOT been fixed for the BB PRIV, so please don't post your answers or suggestions if you own anything else. You're just confusing & irritating the rest of us.....

    I own a BB PRIV and just got off of the phone with BB support and SD card encryption is not supported yet.

    Well, it's now June, 2016 and there is still no way to encrypt the SD card other than by converting it to adoptable storage, which has the disadvantages of reduced speeds and the risk of SD corruption that, presumably, will brick the phone.
