Instructions and Help about can't unlock file mac

Hi my name is Eli banner and I'm from Citadel I would like to show you how to encrypt your hard drive on your Mac OS computer this will work with newer mega s 10 and newer computers like laptops and IMAX and and so on first of all I would like to know that this won't help you against law enforcement and very sophisticated attacker but if your laptop gets stolen it's good to know that your data is safe so let's start by clicking on the Apple icon on the menu and choosing System Preferences we now click on security and privacy and click on file vault-tec file vault is that encryption software now we click on the lock icon that would allow us to make changes we have to type our password so we type our password click on unlock and turn on File Vault this screen shows which users will be able to unlock the encrypted disks so they will need to enter enter their password there is also another option of decrypting your hard drive by typing this string so make sure to note this string in case something happens with your password and click on continue Apple allows you to store the recovery key for you I don't recommend storing the recovery key with apples so I choose this option and click on continue and now we have to restart our computer after a short restart the encryption process takes place here it says it takes two hours but you can actually work while while doing this make sure that your password is long enough to stay secure and I hope that your laptop never gets stolen good luck.
