Lollipop now hitting Dell Venue 8 tablets, forcing encryption during update

We’re no strangers to Lollipop updates around here, but Dell adding encryption during the update is something new.

One of the big topics to come up during the launch of Android 5.0, especially after using the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, was the inclusion of full disk encryption to the platform. Nexus users quickly discovered they had little say in the matter, but most manufacturers have left encryption as a choice in both updates and new device releases. During the update to Android 5.0.2 today, Dell Venue 8 users will notice a step in between agreeing to reboot and start the update and the “Android is upgrading” screen. This sleek little Intel tablet is encrypting the device during the update process, and it’s happening without user consent.
