Eset Anti-Theft and Bitlocker PIN on startup

Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a new laptop running W10 Pro, configured with local user accounts and bitlocker encryption enabled. Bitlocker is also configured to require a pre-boot PIN.

In the circumstances, is there any point in enabling Eset Anti-Theft? As I understand it, EAT relies on the device having booted and a thief logging in to the phantom account. But if they can't boot the machine in the first place...

Correct. A potential thieve would have to guess the Bitlocker PIN first and start the operating system in order for Anti-Theft to come into play.
