Going into Windows 11, an additional security layer was added called the TPM 2.0. Which is also necessary to play Valorant. So, let’s take a look at what TPM is and how to fix the Valorant TPM 2.0 error.
What is TPM?
TPM or Trusted Platform Module is a cryptographic module that enhances the computer’s security and privacy. TPM uses encryption and decryption to maintain the security of the system.
Most of the PC or systems which were bought in the past 5 years have TPM 2.0 chips in their motherboards. And the TPM 2.0 chip is necessary for you to upgrade your OS to Windows 11. As it is an important building block for all security-related features.
Some software in Windows 11 requires an active TMP to be function properly. However, not all applications require that.

This is indeed is the fattest W to ensure your games are safe!
