Tutorial Description

If you have sensitive data stored on your MacBook, you may want to consider installing FileVault.

FileVault is a encryption tool built into OSX.

Rather than encrypting individual files or folders, FileVault encrypts the entire bootable volume, with the option to encrypt other volumes as well. Using a strong encryption password, you can prevent access to your data if your MacBook is lost or stolen.

No password, no access.

Filevault also generates a recovery key to enable you to access your encrypted data in the event of you forgetting your password.

Transparent in operation and simple to set up, FileVault adds an extra layer of security to your Mac.

The full tutorial covers:

  • FileVault Background
  • Preparing For FileVault
  • Installing FileVault
  • Recovery Key
  • EFI Login Screen
  • Using The Recovery Key
  • Encrypting Other Volumes
  • Encrypting Using Disk Utility
  • Turn Off FileVault
