Pen drives are the new age equivalent of a traditional folder. Like in old folders, some data or information is classified and not for everyone’s eyes. If you need to carry important documents on your pen drive, it would be prudent to go with options that offer an additional security layer to protect your data. This protection is managed with the help of fingerprint readers to authenticate file and folder access, while others use a numerical lock. All in all, both these methods are pretty safe if your pen drive is stolen or lost. With these protection measures, you’re sure your data is safe. Here are a few options that you could choose from.

Here’s a pen drive that is quite impressive for a number of reasons. For one, it has a large storage capacity of 128GB, which is great for storing pictures, important documents, music, video and more. The large storage capacity is backed by a USB 3.0 connection, which is faster, more stable and more reliable than older USB 2.0 connection technologies. Furthermore, it uses a high-tech fingerprint scanner so that no one but you has access to the files within. With a number lock, the data can still be compromised, but you’ve got a foolproof encryption method with a fingerprint scanner. It is quite compact and uses a cover to protect the connector. If several people use it, it can store up to 10 fingerprints on board.

This pen drive also comes with a fingerprint reader and fast read and write speeds owing to the USB 3.0 connection. This lets you seamlessly transfer and check out files from your computer. Since the read speeds are fast, you can also run heavy PDFs and presentations from the pen drive without worrying about lag or read speed issues. It uses a fingerprint reader for encryption, which is impressive and has a fast recognition time, ensuring that you get the data you want as soon as possible. The storage on the drive is 32GB, which may seem like a little less, but there are only so many documents that one wants to encrypt, and the storage should be sufficient enough for most people.

If you don’t trust fingerprint scanners with your data for fear they may lock you out of your own pen drive, then you should opt for a pen drive that features a more traditional number lock system to encrypt data. This pen drive does exactly that - it features a lock and unlock button, along with numbers from 0-9. Once you set a pin, you will need to enter it each time to access the data stored within the pen drive. The pen drive features a read speed of 116 MB/s, which is good enough for viewing PDFs, Excel spreadsheets and PowerPoint presentations without the need to copy documents over to the laptop itself. It packs in 8GB of storage, which is ample for storing those important documents that you can’t let on to anyone else. For the use case, the rather low 8GB storage should be enough.

If you want a fail-safe method of protecting your files, going for a pen drive with an alpha-numeric pad is a great choice. It is not easy to tamper with, and it is nearly impossible to break through using guesswork. It lets users set a PIN which can be anywhere between 7-15 characters long, ensuring there is no room for a break-in into your data. It features USB 3.0 technology which enables fast read, write and transfer speeds and 16GB of storage. The 16GB drive can store a host of files and documents, not just movies, music, pictures, and more. There are two buttons for locking and unlocking the pen drive, making it all the more hassle-free to use.
