    buying a TPM chip?

    Hello,

    I am planning on getting the TPM chip and I want your opinion about it, I know it old piece.

    Is it worth buying it and what is the benefits of having it and not having it?

    Thanks

    Can you install it in your PC - does the mobo support it?
    Why do you want one? If you are encrypting your disk why not just enter a PIN?

    cheers, Paul

    Yes I can install in it on my mobo, I thought it would be safer to have it rather than having to remember a pin or password!!

    It won't be any safer, but it may be more convenient. Your choice.

    cheers, Paul
