Question

Is there an encryption feature available in Parallels Desktop for Chrome OS Enterprise and Education Edition?

Information

Encryption is one of the key features of Chrome OS: all user data is encrypted by default, and is stored in per-user data vaults. This prevents anyone other than the user from accessing the data, including other users of the same Chromebook.

And since Windows virtual machine is located in such an encrypted data vault, additional encryption on an application level would be redundant and would lead to decreased performance.

Therefore, Parallels Desktop for Chrome OS Enterprise and Education Edition does not feature its own encryption.
