  • Hi,

    Besides Bitlocker, you can try Device Encryption in Windows:

    To check if Device Encryption is enabled, open the Settings app, navigate to System > About, and look for a “Device encryption” setting at the bottom of the About pane. If you don’t see anything about Device Encryption here, your PC doesn’t support Device Encryption and it’s not enabled.

  • Bitlocker is not available in home and is extremely dangerous
