I should also add that I store my backups in off-site locations which I consider to be less secure than my home.

For this reason, I want my encrypted backups to be protected using a long and random passphrase, stored in my password manager, which is orders or magnitude stronger than the macOS account password(s) at the OS level.

This is especially the case as I share some of my Macs with other members of my family who need their macOS account password to be considerably weaker than mine.

The old method of making encrypted backups allowed me to do this. I could make backups that could *not* be unlocked using any of the macOS account passwords. You needed to enter the long and random passphrase first.

Is this capability gone for good in the brave new world?
