So I am using "Symantec PGP" whole disc protection. I do Not have any problems but I am just asking if this is a decent BIOS protection and also is it easy or not too easy to by pass ? I am using a paraphrase that is at 100%. My hash keys are not saved anywhere.

Hi -
I think this is the program you mean PGP Whole Disk Encryption not "Symantec PGP" whole disc protection
If I an wrong, please correct me and I will get the other details - I have never used this, just because I do not like Norton/Symantec generally -

PGP Whole Disk Encryption < < Read the full Norton claimed details -

Thank You -
