What is BitLocker?

BitLocker is designed to protect your mobile device including private & confidential student data by encrypting the hard drive and requiring a PIN code to start Windows. Without the correct PIN code, you (or anyone else) will not be able to start Windows.

Note: If you type in your PIN code incorrectly after a few tries, you may get locked out and even if you enter in the proper PIN code, you will not be able to get in. Wait about 10-15 minutes before trying again. This is a security feature to prevent someone from trying to guess the PIN code.

If you forget your BitLocker password, please follow the steps here.
