Do you use portable storage devices such as USB flash drives also known as pen drives or memory sticks?
I use them all the time because they are so easy to carry around and they make life easy for me when I need to move files from one computer (my Mac) to another (my MacBook Pro). They are even handy to use as a temporary storage location for a quick backup of some important data from my computer.
However, one of my concerns about these portable USB drives is how small they are. This makes it easy for them to be misplaced, lost or even stolen.
Obviously the actual device can be replaced, but the big concern is if the it fell into the wrong hands and how simple it is for an unauthorised person to access all my data and files by simply plugging the USB drive into a computer.
So how can you protect your files on your USB drives, pen drives and memory sticks for free with Mac OS Sierra?
