No, you won't have access to the console to enter a bitlocker password but you shouldn't need to use this feature of bitlocker on Azure VMs.

Hello, @Metik-8788!

@AlanKinane is correct--Azure provides a vast array of security features and services designed specifically to address the concern of unauthorized access in the cloud. If you are interested in BitLocker, one of these features is Azure Disk Encryption which uses both BitLocker (Windows) and dm-crypt (Linux) to provide volume encryption for the OS and data disks:
