    A PIN code protects the device from unauthorised access, but your Microsoft Account will remain vulnerable to a whole range of attacks. If you have enabled 2FA, please update your post to show these changes, under Basic Account Security.

    Do you use a screen guard or protector for your phone?

    Isn't the phone prone to scratches? I had one for 2 years, but peeled it off 2 weeks back.

    Not updated to Creators edition because the device is illegible.

    Subscribe for Insider Preview and get it. I'm using it the same way.

    BTW do you know where we can get the Back panel of this product in India?

    Removed:
    Device Encryption was turned off.
    Caused a catastrophic issue where my Bitlocker key was missing and thereby prevented it from booting it. Hard reset fixed it.
    Likely caused due to: Tried to install 3 rd party app to enable LED and app data reset tool.
    Added:
    Win 10 RS 1 updated to 10.0.14393.1358

    Updated to Creators update 15063.414 via Release Preview Insider.
    I feel the animation stutters after upgrade. App data reset only works for handful of apps. I found that, relaunching apps after upgrade fixes slow loading and other performance issues.
