Greetings. This is my first post here on MacRumors. I recently purchased a MacBook Air. It is a great laptop and I like it but the OS has changed a bit since I last used it (the last I used was Mac OS X Snow Leopard). Just now, I was looking to encrypt my local account with FileVault but I got confused when I was prompted to choose if I wanted to have my recovery key stored in iCloud. How does this work, exactly? If I forget my password, will I need to go to the iCloud website and get the key from there? Where exactly is it stored? Is this even a safe/recommended method? I will be very grateful for any clarification on this. Thank you!
