Got secret or sensitive data stored on your USB flash drive? Thanko has come up with a rather simple solution to protecting data on a flash drive without the use of encryption. Called the USB Lock, the device is essentially a small three-numbered pad lock that attaches to the USB connector of a flash drive effectively “locking” the device. The USB Lock requires a number combination to release the drive.
The USB combination pad lock costs 780 Yen ($7 USD) at Thanko’s website and can be used with any USB type device or cable. You can even attach the pad lock to your key chain for easy and secure transport.
