I would give you a big YES when you answer 'Can I read a BitLocker-protected drive on Mac'. As a matter of fact, macOS devices have no built-in BitLocker drive reader or decrypter. Yet you still have the capability to read a BitLocker-encrypted drive on Mac as long as you use a third-party BitLocker for Mac utility. I highly recommend iBoysoft BitLocker for Mac here.
iBoysoft BitLocker for Mac is a one-stop solution to manage and use BitLocker encrypted drives on Mac. You can open BitLocker encrypted USB drives on Mac easily. Asides from that, you will gain full read & write access to BotLocker-encrypted HHD, SSD, USB flash drives, SD cards, etc.
