The highly efficient USB Flash Drives or USB Pen Drives so popular that mostly all the computer users are proud owners of these drives as such. The reason for their immense popularity can be attributed to the fact that they are so small and with such vast capacity that people just want to store all their data on these tiny little magical creations. Also the fact that they offer so much ease of operation without any bulk association attached with these, that everyone has at least one Flash Drive for sure.
But the bad things that gets associated with these is, that since they are so tiny that they can get lost very easily and that too without anybody’s knowledge. Now the loss of a USB Drive is not similar to that of a wallet lost case as such; whereby your identity can be traced by some credit or debit cards in the wallet or also your own visitor’s cards information. If someone happens to lose their data stick there is no way it can get its way back home, even if the finder intends to return it to you? The loss can be immense thereof. In addition to the physical loss of the stick there is a possibility that the data can be compromised in any manner if it is of sensitive nature.
It can lead to identity theft; or the confidential company information can be compromised by selling it to the highest bidder or your email or postal mails can be flooded by junk mail. That is why it makes sense to invest in password protected Flash drives whereby the data can be extremely safe even if the drive is physically stolen by anyone.
