How to decrypt my Fairphone under FP Open OS?


I encrypted my Fairphone (Fairphone Open OS) a while ago, but I suspect that it’s using more battery like that.

I would like to verify, and therefore would like to decrypt the phone.

However, when I go in Settings, Security, Encryption and click on the Ecrypt phone (encrypted) item, nothing happens.

Any idea how to go about decrypting this thing?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help.


Before you encrypt there is a warning text telling you “the only way to decrypt is to perform a factory data reset (hard reset), erasing all your data.”


Aaaah that’s why :slight_smile:

I forgot about that warning.

Alright, thanks!
