Many people consider hard drives secure because they physically own them. It’s difficult to read the data on a hard drive that you don’t have, and many people think that protecting their computer with a passphrase makes the data on the drive unreadable.
This isn’t always the case, partly because, in some cases, a passphrase serves only to unlock a user session. In other words, you can power on a computer, but because you don’t have its passphrase, you can’t get to the desktop, and so you have no way to open files to look at them.
