I never cared about encrypting local disks until my MacBook was stolen three days ago. I have backups but the thought of someone having all my data is very scary.

I didn't care until my SSD died and I had to decide whether to exchange it or not.

Nothing to hide; nothing to fear, right?

Identity theft would be my biggest concern.
