Is my Macbook pro HD Encrypted by default?

Hi All,

I have a 2015 13 inch macbook pro which unfortunately has a damaged logic board, and as I can't afford to pay £600 to replace I want to try to sell for spares/repairs.

My concern is as I have no way of formatting the HD, is the data on there secure?? I seem to remember that apple started encrypting HDs as default.

There most likely isn't any sensitive data on there, but you can't be too sure.

thanks in advance.
