Enable Secure Boot on your device

Your organization requires that you enable Windows Secure Boot, which is a security feature that helps protect your device.

If you're using a mobile device, contact your support person and they'll help enable Secure Boot for you.

If you're using a PC, you can either:

  • Contact your support person for help.
  • Try enabling Secure Boot on your own through the PC BIOS menu. For step-by-step instructions, see the Re-enable Secure Boot section in this article.
