Welcome to USB Secure!
USB Secure helps you password protect USB drives, Thumb drives, Memory sticks, Pen drives, Jump drives and Flash drives. It supports plug and play and runs automatically once a USB drive is plugged in, asking you the password for it. USB Secure is hassle free and it doesn’t need a rocket scientist to master.
USB flash drives are the most popular way to move data from one PC to another. They are small in size but can carry gigabytes of data. They are easy to use, convenient, affordable, but at the same time they pose a security risk and can be easily lost, stolen or misplaced. A secure USB drive i.e. a password protected USB drive is a must because it may contain important data that could worth millions of dollars and can jeopardize your business if ends up in wrong hands. It may contain financial records, source codes, product ideas, Credit Card numbers or similar confidential information.
With USB Secure your USB flash drives and all other external storage devices can be very easily password protected. An easy to use setup program will guide you to put the program on your USB drive. It can automatically detect all such drives currently plugged into your PC. After installing simply run the software, and set and confirm a password to protect USB drive and all the data in it. To access your data again, it is important that you plug-in your USB drive into the computer and choose the ‘Open this USB drive with password’ option from the Windows Autoplay that pops up every time you plug-in your USB drive. You can also double click the USB drive in your PC to launch the program. If however your autoplay is disabled, you can also alternatively run the USB Secure.exe in your USB drive. To unprotect your secure USB drives, click ‘Unprotect’ and enter correct password to access your data again.
Another great feature of USB Secure is that it doesn’t require any Administrator rights to provide security to password protect USB and other portable media. This is because the program doesn’t install any kernel or filter drivers that normally require extra privileges to run. You can also set Auto-play option when you plug-in your USB drive in your computer. If you wish to deactivate Auto-play feature and don’t want your USB drive to act like a password protected USB drive, click ‘Options’ and uncheck the Auto-play feature and click ‘Ok’
You don’t need to set a new password every time you protect USB drive, however you can change your current password at any time. To change your current password, click ‘Options’ enter your currently set password and then set and confirm a new password.
