We are running into a strange issue with Windows 10 x64 Build 1803. When we install Windows from scratch and we chose an offline account it shows the C drive with BitLocker Encrypted. I could see this happening if I logged in with a Microsoft account but not with a local account. See Pictures below. What can I do to fix this issue?

Referance From Microsoft's website.
"Note: BitLocker automatic device encryption is enabled only after users sign in with a Microsoft Account or an Azure Active Directory account. BitLocker automatic device encryption is not enabled with local accounts, in which case BitLocker can be manually enabled using the BitLocker Control Panel."
