  1. What does bitlocker ACTUALLY do?


    So I'm thinking of encrypting my "C:\" SSD on my laptop so if its stolen no one could get on my files. But whenever I search how BitLocker works, ppl always talk about the encryption and setup process, but I want to know if I have a password on my Windows User Account and I log out, will everything be decrypted? So will Bitlocker only encrypt if I log in and decrypt if I log out?
