What is BitLocker?

BitLocker is a Windows feature that protects data volumes by encrypting them with AES encryption. It can also prevent firmware-level malware. It is available in the following versions of the operating system:

  • Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise
  • Windows Vista Ultimate and Enterprise
  • Windows 8.x Pro and Enterprise
  • Windows 10 Pro, Enterprise and Education
  • Windows Server 2008 and later

BitLocker has three authentication mechanisms. In transparent operation mode, it uses Trusted Platform Module (TPM) hardware to protect users without authenticating them. In user authentication mode, users must provide identification prior to booting, in the form of either a PIN or a password. In USB key mode, users must insert a USB device containing a startup key in order to boot the operating system.

In Windows Pro and Enterprise versions, you can manage BitLocker by right-clicking a drive and selecting Manage BitLocker. Here you can turn BitLocker on or off, temporarily suspend encryption, and back up your recovery key.
