    Full disk encryption provides incredible data protection for personal devices. If you haven’t enabled FileVault on your Mac, Windows Device Encryption on your PC, or Android Device Encryption on your phone, please go do it now (iOS encrypts storage by default). It’s easy, efficient, and secure. You will likely never notice the difference in usage or performance. Seriously. This is a no-brainer. Once enabled, device encryption prevents just about anyone from accessing device data. Unless a malefactor possesses both device and authentication credentials, the data is secure.

    Mostly.
