How to Change BitLocker Password in Windows 7 Professional?

July 15, 2018, Posted by Admin to BitLocker Manager

I have the old password and the recovery key, and I need to change the BitLocker password in Windwows 7, but it seems impossible. I can't seem to find a place where I can change the password to something more secure, I can't find 'Change BitLocker password' from the right-click pop-up menu in Windows Explorer, and I can't find BitLocker manager in Windows Control Panel. Is there anyone who can tell me how to change BitLocker password in Windows 7 Professional?

I have to say by default we cannot change BitLocker password in Windows 7 Professional, because Microsoft has divided BitLocker into enterprise features, so this feature is not available in Windows 7 Professional edition. However, for data security, sometimes we have to change the password, such as the following reasons:

  • Change the password periodically to maintain security.
  • The password has been compromised.
  • Forgotten your password.
  • The password is not strong enough.
  • The password is too complicated.

Hasleo BitLocker Anywhere is definitely an advanced featured tool to change password from a BitLocker Encrypted Drive in Windows 7 Professional. With this tool, you can change your password not only through the old password, but also with the recovery key. This means that even if you have forgotten your old password, you can change the password by using the recovery key.
