Anon-2440032 17:51 25 Sep 2018 Locked 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.
