Bitlocker recovery key not found

Bitlocker activated without my consent on my laptop. On my Microsoft account, when I click on Bitlocker to find my recovery key the following msg appears:

« Essayer une autre URL. Nous n'avons rien à vous montrer au niveau de ce lien. Essayez plutôt de rechercher ce que vous souhaitez. »

In English : « Try another url. We have nothing to show you at this link. Instead, try to find what you want. »

How can I recover my recovery key (what an irony) ?

Thanks for your help.

    Thank you for your question and reaching out.

    You can try below Different methods to get BitLocker recovery Keys

    There are three common ways for BitLocker to start protecting your device:

    Your device is a modern device that meets certain requirements to automatically enable device encryption: In this case your BitLocker recovery key is automatically saved to your Microsoft account before protection is activated.

    An owner or administrator of your device activated BitLocker protection (also called device encryption on some devices) through the Settings app or Control Panel: In this case the user activating BitLocker either selected where to save the key or (in the case of device encryption) it was automatically saved to their Microsoft account.

    A work or school organization that is managing your device (currently or in the past) activated BitLocker protection on your device: In this case the organization may have your BitLocker recovery key.
