How secure is FileVault?
delia25 1 year ago
I'm pretty new to the world of Mac, having used mostly Windows PCs for more years than I like to admit. I've never used FileVault before, but I just turned on FileVault on my work issued MacBook. Is this really a secure encryption method, or is it just a weak "consumer use" security blanket?
