Updated on May 18, 2021 by Admin to BitLocker Alternative

I used to use BitLocker in my company, so I know that BitLocker can be used to encrypt disks to protect our data on Windows operating systems. Recently I wanted to encrypt a partition that contained some important personal files, but it was very strange that I can not find BitLocker anywhere on my home computer that running the Winows Home 10 Edition. I googled and found that BitLocker is not available in the Windows Home Edition. Is there any alternative software that can encrypt partitions with BitLocker?

BitLocker is a full disk encryption tool provided by Microsoft, unfortunately it is not available in Windows 10/8/7 Home Editions. So many Windows home users choose to use third-party disk encryption software TrueCrypt, unfortunately TrueCrypt suddenly announces that it is not safe and recommends that users use BitLocker instead of themselves, many users have to return to BitLocker. Because the encryption technology of BitLocker is very complex, you can't find any BitLocker alternatives until Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere comes up. The partitions encrypted with Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere are fully compatible with Microsoft's BitLocker, so it's the best BitLocker alternative for Windows 10/8/7 Home Editions available on the market.
