When are you guys enabling FileVault via MDM, at logout or login or using a custom profile that would enable FV immediately ?
We do it as part of our set up configuration profile with highest priority, so encryption happens shortly after account creation.
They get a pop up that says "Filevault must be enabled" and they authenticate and it starts in the background.
could I ask how do you do that ? i mean to force it immediately after the account setup and ask them to enter their password so the encryption starts ?
In our environment it happens after the first reboot. I would also like to know how to force it immediately.
We send a configuration profile to the machine. It turns it on for new deployments and disables turning it off. 🤷 How the MDM does that I'm not 100% sure.
yeah enabling FV via configuration profile doesn't allow it to be disabled but how can you force immediately 😄 can you share your profile here ?
Ah. My mistake. We have it set to "User is always prompted at log in".
So thats why it happens automatically 😅
