System requirements: Mac
How to Get:
To prepare for the installation of full disk encryption on your laptop, we ask that you do the following:
- Read the Frequently Asked Questions regarding full disk encryption.
How to Use:
Encrypting your hard drive could take 6-24 hours to complete. If the computer reboots before the encryption is complete, you may need to contact support to recover your computer and complete the installation.
These steps should be completed while logged into the user account of the primary user of the machine. Failure to follow these steps as the primary user will result in more headaches to create and migrate accounts. Please make sure you are logged in as the user who should be encrypting the machine before beginning.
