Just converted from Win 7 Pro to Win 10 Pro yesterday, and afterwards installed a TPM chip. The chip is recognized by TPM Management. I haven't turned on Bitlocker yet.

The only way I can see to change the Owner Password first requires that I enter the current TPM Owner Password. The TPM seems to have been automatically initialized and Prepared by TPM Management. I assume that means an Owner Password has been generated but I have no idea what it is or how to back it up.

Perhaps it's tied into the Bitlocker Recovery Key? Just a guess; like I said I haven't turned on Bitlocker.

Has this something that has recently changed with Win 10? Is it safe to begin using Bitlocker even though I don't have the password saved offline?
