This article describes how to use TPM with PGP Whole Disk Encryption.
PGP Desktop supports using the Trusted Platform Module as an additional authentication device for PGP Whole Disk Encryption if available on your hardware.

Your TPM vendor may implement security features that affect usage of the TPM. Please consult the documentation for your system for information.
Note: If you clear your TPM by resetting it to factory settings, or if your system board containing the TPM is replaced, you will not be able to access your encrypted disk when using the TPM user because your credentials stored on the TPM are no longer accessible. Ensure that you have an alternate method to access your encrypted disk.
