If you get an error message “Disabled by administrator encryption policy or credential storage” each time you want to change your android phone screen lock type, here is a quick fix for it.

I do not know why I’ve been procrastinating writing this solution for my fellow android device users.

Different opinions were suggested for him to try out, hopefully, one of the suggestions worked for him.

That is what I’m about sharing with you today.

I will not suggest a fix for this problem but will tell you exactly what to do to bring back other screen lock options in your android phone so you can change it to your desired lock option.

Irrespective of the type of android phone that you are using, the process to get this problem fixed is pretty the same.

Even if you are using the new Android version 8.1, this will still work for you.

My Facebook friend who had this issue mentioned the make of his Android device to be Infinix note 2 lite, though I had the same issue in my Gionee m5 plus, I followed this same strategy and it was fixed in less than a minute.

That is the screenshot from my Gionee m5 plus.

I’ve got my own credentials cleared already, that is why it’s not highlighted.

Now you should be able to switch between the available screen lock patterns.

Were you able to get over “Disabled by administrator encryption policy or credential storage” to get your android device available screen lock back?
