Can I Use Boot Camp With BitLocker And FileVault With Parallels On Mac?

I have done this setup on several MacBook pros (and will do the same to a new MacBook Pro (08/2018)). I install Win10Pro on a Boot camp partition then run Parallels to access Win10 from the Mac OS. I can also boot directly to Win10 if desired. I want to turn on FileVault to encrypt the MacOS files and turn on BItLocker (without TPM) to encrypt the Win10 files. Has this been done before and/or will I have any issues accessing Win10 through Parallels? Thanks in advance

Hey there, you can't use Boot Camp Assistant to enable BitLocker on your T2 chip Mac because Apple dropped Boot Camp Assistant on Apple devices since the Apple Silicon chip's appearance. You're recommended to use Parallels to experience Windows on your Mac with T2 chip directly, then you can start the use of BitLocker to encrypt your Windows partition and launch FileVault on your Mac partition for data security.

Best wishes~
