I am a Windows user, the company recently purchased MAC computers for employees because of the need to work. In order to ensure the security of the data, I used BitLocker to encrypt disks, including internal and external hard disk. What bothers me now is that I can't unlock BitLocker encrypted external hard disk on my MAC computer, I have to decrypt the drive, but that poses a risk to the data. I hope someone can recommend me a software that can unlock and access external hard disk on my MAC, thanks.

Many Windows users like to use BitLocker to encrypt external hard disks to keep their data secure, but this can cause a lot of hassle in accessing data stored on external har disks across different operating systems. For a MAC user, the MAC operating system does not support BitLocker, so a MAC user cannot unlock and access BitLocker encrypted external hard disks directly on a MAC computer. As a software developer with in-depth knowledge of BitLocker technology, Hasleo received a lot of user feedback in the hope of unlocking and accessing BitLocker encrypted external hard disks on MAC computers, so we developed BitLocker Anywhere For MAC to help users unlock and access external hard disks on their MAC computers.
