By | December 16, 2021

In this article, I will first explain why you need a TPM (Trusted Platform Module) for Windows 11 and then teach you how to bypass the TPM requirement so you can install Windows 11.

Windows 11 will soon be available to all users by the end of this year! This Operating System has some visual changes but not a complete redesign. Many Windows 10 users use PC Health Checker to see if their system can run Windows 11. Some of the users are happy that their system can run Windows 11, while some get a notification that their PC cannot run Windows 11. When a message appears This PC can’t run Windows 11, many answered because your computer does not have a TPM. Therefore, in this article, we will see why you need a TPM for Windows 11 and can you bypass TPM?

What is TPM (Trusted Platform Modules)

In the previous article, I explained what the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is and how to enable it. Here I will explain in outline only.

TPM stands for Trusted Platform Module, which is a special chip used to store cryptographic keys. It serves to secure your computer and is nothing but hardware layer encryption.

Two kkeys will be generated on the TMP computer, namely the Endorsement Key and the Storage Root Key. These two buttons are maneuvered to provide security that cannot be achieved with software.

Why do you need TPM for Windows 11?

The Trusted Platform Module (TPM) is one of the most prominent security features in Windows 11. TPM is a chip used to secure confidential and sensitive data such as encryption keys, user credentials and others behind hardware barriers. As attackers get smarter and use advanced techniques to alter the data on your PC, this will help protect your PC from malware, ransomware and other cyberattacks. TPM chips are added to the CPU individually or integrated into your computer’s motherboard.

Most computers, nowadays, come with a built-in TPM. And without realizing it, we’ve used this chip for a lot of security-related work, including Windows Hello.

TPM is not only used for Windows Hello Face authentication method but also for BitLocker to protect your identity.

Microsoft has made TPM a minimum requirement to run Windows 11. So you can run Windows 11 only if your PC has a built-in TPM chip. Although some high-end PCs use TPM chips. But, now it has become a must to use Windows 11 on your PC. Otherwise, you will not be able to upgrade the operating system on your PC to Windows 11.

To make it easier for users, the TPM 2.0 chip will be integrated into all certified Windows 11 systems so customers can take advantage of security backed by a hardware root of trust.

The hardware security layer is much more secure than the software. With the help of TPM, your computer will be able to encrypt the entire disk while protecting your passwords from attacks. It has been used by many IT companies for centuries, but Microsoft wants to make it mandatory for all to ensure protection.

So, with the help of modern CPUs, Secure Boot and virtualization protection, Microsoft is trying to counter the endless ransomware attacks against vulnerable Windows.

With cyber attacks increasing and news about companies stealing personal information, people are somewhat skeptical about their privacy. By making TPM mandatory for Windows 11 PCs, it can ensure some privacy and security from cyber attacks.
