Add new FileVault users

If users are not added to FileVault automatically, these instructions tell you what the new users see and what they need to do.

They must:

  1. Enter their login password and click Proceed.
    Users can normally use their macOS login password to access their Mac and use FileVault.
  2. If there is no recovery key stored in yet, new users must select an existing FileVault user who can authorize this task.
  3. The existing FileVault user then needs to enter their login password and click Proceed.
New users can now use their macOS login password to access their Mac and use FileVault.
