BitLocker is a feature of the Windows operating systems (Windows Vista and later) which is used to protect data by providing encryption to drives. It also helps to protect your system against unauthorized changes.

BitLocker Requirements

To run BitLocker, you need a PC running Windows Vista, 7 Ultimate, 7 Enterprise, 8.1 Pro, 8.1 Enterprise, or 10 Pro, a storage drive with at least two partitions and a Trusted Platform Module (TPM).

A TPM is a special kind of chip that runs an authentication check on your hardware, software, and firmware.
