USB Flash Drive Lock – keep your data safe on any flash drive


At one time or another most of us have carried around a bunch of important, private data on a flash drive. Even if it’s only the reports on our probation visits. The problem is you can easily lose these little USB drives, which makes for a scary scenario. Sure we could invest in a dedicated secure USB dongle, but they’re expensive. Which makes this 3 Digit Flash Drive Lock a rather interesting alternative.

The product slots onto any standard USB flash drive by fitting into the slots on the metal casing. Once installed, you can set your choice of combinations, and presto, you’ve got a drive which can’t be inserted into any USB socket.


OK, so we know that for you hard core security nuts out there the lack of encryption is going to be a problem, but for most people, it’s all about casual access. And if you can put off an opportunist quickly and easily, then why not. Especially if the price is just $8 for the lock.
