En­crypt your data

Mac Format - - PROTECT YOUR MAC -

If your de­vice is stolen, make sure your data is pro­tected by en­crypt­ing it. Your iPhone or iPad is au­to­mat­i­cally en­crypted when you set a pass­code – if it’s par­tic­u­larly sen­si­tive data, go to Set­tings > Pass­code, switch off Sim­ple Pass­code and set a hard-toguess pass­word in­stead.

Pro­tect your Mac’s main sys­tem par­ti­tion by go­ing to Sys­tem Pref­er­ences > Se­cu­rity & Pri­vacy > FileVault and click­ing Turn On FileVault if you’ve not al­ready done so. Other drives can be en­crypted from within Finder – right-click the drive in the Finder side­bar and choose ‘En­crypt [Vol­ume Name]…’ then en­ter a hard-to-guess pass­word when prompted – click the ‘Key’ but­ton to gen­er­ate one au­to­mat­i­cally.
