just booted a new lenovo PC for the first tine ...

warning ... clearing erases information stored on TPM.
you will loose all created keys and access to data encrypted by these keys .press f12 to clear TPM
esc to reject this change request and continue

Weill I waited and it just booted to win 10 pro setup and I don’t know what default was chosen.

I’ve three more to setup
what should I choose ?

I don’t need encryption but wouldn’t mind know if I do/don’t choose it will the users be prompted for a more security every boot?

note - I want to keep things simple, it’s for an adult education simple class
