My understanding (which I am not 100% sure about) is that unlike HFS+, APFS supports encryption. Not the same as being encrypted. One consequence of this is that when you turn FileVault on the machine does not have to restart, which it did with HFS to convert to CoreStorage.Does Mojave finally encrypt by default? That'd be something to add to the "pro" column. Won't be installing it until at least 14.3, of course, so am still making up the list.
On a modern Mac, there are zero reasons not to enable FileVault by default.
One of the "additional" advantage of encryption is when you "physically" lose your Mac. Should protect your data/information on that Mac.Other than the obvious (security aspects), what other advantages are there for having a Mojave boot drive formatted APFS encrypted? Thanks for any input.
