Encrypting files that are stored on a media card

Your BlackBerry smartphone is designed to encrypt media files that you store on a media card using your smartphone password, an encryption key that your smartphone generates, or both.

If you turn on the Encrypt Media Files option and transfer files to your media card using the BlackBerry Desktop Software, Bluetooth technology, or NFC technology, the files can be encrypted and decrypted. If you manually transfer files to or from your media card (for example, to a computer using USB mass storage mode), the files aren't encrypted or decrypted even if you have turned on the Encrypt Media Files option.
