How do I decrypt my SIM card after Factory Reset?

I had to Factory Reset my phone and I didn't decrypt my SIM card before. Is there any way I can unlock/decrypt my SIM card now?

You cannot personally encrypt your SIM card. Your SIM card is the card that your carrier gives you to connect to its network, and the only thing you can do with it is store contacts. You're probably talking about your SD card. Unfortunately, since you didn't decrypt your SD card before you performed a Factory Reset, you will be unable to decrypt your SD card and get the content that you stored on it back.

How can I make an SD card to work with only specific device?

Hi, I read your article about SD card encryption and it is of great help. My query is an extension to the article.

I run a small coaching institute in India. I want to provide video content to my students using a Tablet and 32 GB SD card. As the content is my IP, I would like to make it as much secure as I can. In this regards, is there any way that I can lock the SD card with device ID (or something like that), so that if somebody removes the SD card from tablet to copy the content on other device like Laptop or Desktop, it would not work. Thanks.

Which Android phone uses this feature?

I would like to know which model of the mobile phones is present in today's market

Any non-rooted Android smartphone without a custom launcher has the feature. The only difference is that on 5.0 and higher, you do not have to set lock-screen security first. Then, go to "Apps" > "Settings" > "Personal" > "Security" to find the encryption options. Even if you have a rooted smartphone with a custom launcher, you can install SSE - Universal Encryption App or Crypto Ghost- File Encryption to encrypt your device or microSD card.
