USB Lockit: Secure your USB flash drive on Windows 10

Most of us generally protect our computers, but we forget about protecting our USB flash drives, which is why we rarely do. Nevertheless, it is worthwhile to do so. It is because you can use USB flash drives to store several of the most valuable documents that might not otherwise be available to you. You will find this even more critical when working on an untrusted computer.

You are introducing Lockit, a freeware tool that lets you protect your USB flash drives with a password. We have covered Lockit in this article on risewindows. The software works with Windows and Android and does not cost you a dime. The only con is that it can only use FAT32/exFAT formatted USB flash drives, not NTFS formatted USB flash drives.

Another advantage is that it can use anywhere without installing it on your computer since it is portable software. However, you should note that it doesn’t use encryption in any form and only requires a PIN to secure a specific USB flash drive. It makes it susceptible to hackers. But you don’t need to worry if you’re an average user.
