The data you store on your USB drive is not really protected unless you have a special flash drive. The Voicelok Voice Authenticating USB Drive is certainly that. It lets you add an audible password to your USB drive. Once you configure this gadget and set up your password, your computer won’t recognize it even if it is plugged in. It needs to hear your voice to unlock your data. The Voicelok USB drive can deal with phrases 2 to 4 syllables long.
These USB drives go for as low as $50 (for 8 GB). They have an added layer of security for those of you who plan to store somewhat sensitive data on your flash drive.
