The iSchool has BitLocker configured on all Faculty, Staff, and PhD student Windows computers.  BitLocker is a Microsoft disk encryption technology.  Once BitLocker is turned on, your UW NetID credentials will continue to allow you to sign into the computer; you should see no noticeable change in behavior.

If you are ever prompted for a BitLocker Recovery Key, please contact the iSchool IT Help Desk.

More about BitLocker can be found at the websites below.
