FileVault the Prestage Local Admin account

In our Prestage we set an Local Admin account as below

On ADE setup, users creates account, DEPnotify comes on and installs apps. On Completion DEPNotify is with Restart button. User clicks Restart and is prompted for their pwd to enable FileVault for their account.

Mac restarts, user enters password at FDE screen and desktop comes up.

The Prestage Admin account is not shown as its not FileVaulted enabled, how can we silently enabled FDE for this account?

You can’t automate it without putting plain text passwords into a script.

You’ll need to research SecureTokens and PreStages

Also research bootstrap tokens
