Writing down passwords to folders filled with confidential files or stuff that you’d want to keep a secret is a bad idea. But at the same, most people feel like they have no choice because memorizing passwords for hundreds different folders is no easy task. Cue the Crypto Stick, which is essentially the next-generation flash drives that come with added security.
The device is currently being beta tested. It takes security to a higher level, with decryption being done on the device itself. Hidden volumes are also accepted. To access your data, you’ll have to key in a pin and you’ll be able to access the files within.
The beta version of the Crypto Stick is available online for about $205.
