Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ USB 3.0 Flash drive comes with G3 Safeguards that provides encryption to the stored data. The drive comes in a sleek sturdy metal casing with a key loop for you to carry it in a key chain which would also help us not loosing the drive.

The DTLPG3 has stood the time and has proven to be one of most dependable secure drives in the market. And, when we got the 64GB version of the drive in our hand to play around, we found drive to be extremely user friendly and the set up is pretty simple. As you plug the drive in your system it asks you to register your case sensitive alphanumeric password and reminder, further it will seek your name and company’s name and after that all you need to do is just click on OK, now onwards whatever you save in the drive automatically becomes encrypted.The security factor does not end with just password but also allows you to take a back up for all your data and, once you have logged in your password, it takes you for cloud backup (optional feature) and you can choose to automatically back up the data from the drive to either Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, Amazon Cloud Drive, Dropbox or Box. This feature helps us to recover entire data from the cloud even if anything happens to the drive or somehow its lost.

Now in a scenario, if the drive is lost or stolen Kingston has provided an security feature which enables the DataTraveler Locker+ drive locks down and reformats after 10 incorrect password attempts, deleting all your data and protecting it from wrong hands.To check its performance, I transferred 1.6 GB of data consisting of 244 folders and 6,691 files made up of photos, video and text documents to the encrypted partition, which took 4 minutes, 40 seconds. The transfer speed looks quite reasonable and the sleek look with robust build and armed with multiple security features makes Kingston DataTraveler Locker+ G3 USB 3.0 Flash drive a worthy buy for anyone who is looking to carry its data anywhere and everywhere but securely.

The DataTraveler Locker+ G3 is available in 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities that is backed by a five-year warranty and free live technical support lends more credibility. And, currently the 3 variations for the drive are available in the market at a price of AED 169 onwards.
