USB Data Protection

USB drives are designed to be portable, which also means that they are easy to lose when you are out and about. If you’ve used your USB memory stick to store important or sensitive data, it could easily fall into the wrong hands. It’s important to take steps to ensure that this doesn’t happen, by protecting the
data on your USB drive, so that if it does get lost, your important files cannot be read by others. By spending a little time protecting your USB drive, you can
give yourself complete peace of mind that your data is secure and cannot be read by someone else, even if your drive does fall into the wrong hands. Using
the built-in features of Windows, as well as free third-party tools, you can encrypt and password protect your data to put it beyond the reach of anyone
who might come across your USB stick. Follow the tips and tricks in this article to find out how.
