It depends on the device platform. On iOS devices and the newer Android devices, encryption is turned on by default. You just have to set a password, which will then be used to encrypt the data stored on these devices.
On older Android devices and Windows devices you will have to manually turn encryption on from the device settings. Either way, it is not accounted for in the compliance criteria.
