How to disable FireVault on a Mac?

How do I turn off FireVault on a MacBook? It’s being retired to home only use, and I don’t think it’s still needed.
Connect your Mac to the AC adapter.
To turn off FileVault encryption open System Preferences > Security & Privacy. Go to the FileVault tab. Click the lock icon and login with administrative credentials to allow changes. Click the Turn Off FileVault button and reboot. At this point the decryption process will begin, you can check the status in Preferences where you turned it off.
