Password Protect USB Drive with 3 Free Software

Recently I mentioned about how to password protect your USB ports so that any drive whether a pen drive, an external hard disk, cell phone or a camera can not use the USB port. Today here is a list of some freeware software that can password protect your USB Drive.

The following tools can easily encrypt the data on the USB so that when you open the drive it will ask for a password.

Free USB password protection software:

1.    Folder Lock

Folder Lock can also be used to password protect the USB along with the folders and files on the disk. The only thing with this is that being a shareware it requires Folder Lock to be installed on another computer as well.

2.    True Crypt

Better software to encrypt files on the drive.

3.    Cryptainer LE

A complete freeware to password protect the pen drive. Read this on how to install and use it.

There are many other tools available but none of them are freeware and possess some or the other limitation with them. Well if you know any one else, then do mention it here.
