FileVault is a built in application on your Mac that allows you to fully encrypt your hard disk. This is a great way of protecting the files against attack if someone steals your Mac or has access to the hard drive. Todays post is going to show you an alternate method of enabling, disabling and checking the status of FileVault from Terminal. If you are new to the Mac system I recommend you use the method within System Preferences > Security and Privacy. This tip is useful if you are remotely logged into a Mac through SSH or another method.
