Can I Read A BitLocker-Protected Drive On Mac?

Due to the needs of my work, I sometimes have to protect an external hard drive in Windows using BitLocker. Today I need to use the BitLocker-protected hard drive to do some tests on a MacBook. After I connect the drive to the MacBook, a dialog pops up telling “The disk you inserted was not readable by this computer”. I have to turn off BitLocker encryption on this drive before I can use it on MacBook. But that’s very time-consuming. I wonder if there is any way I can read a BitLocker-encrypted drive on Mac? Thanks in advance.

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.

It can encrypt drives with the BitLocker encryption method and supports encrypted NTFS, exFAT, and FAT32 drives on macOS Ventura, Monterey, and M2, M1, M1 Pro, and M1 Max devices.
