Hello,

I am planning on getting the TPM chip and I want your opinion about it, I know it old piece.

Is it worth buying it and what is the benefits of having it and not having it?

Thanks

Windows 7 has an Encrypting File System (EFS).  Why not just use it?

I am on windows 10, I thought it's more secure to encrypt my data with TPM rather with password

I don't know where you came up with using "password" to encrypt your files.

 

To encrypt a folder or file
 
Right-click the folder or file you want to encrypt, and then click Properties.
 
Click the General tab, and then click on Advanced.
 
Select the Encrypt contents to secure data check box, then click on OK, then click on OK again.

 I said password because u can use the bitlocker feature without the TPM chip
