Keynesis Lockngo 4.0 – A brief review
Lockngo is regarded as the perfect USB drive security solution. You don’t even need to install it to use it. Just download Lockngo, copy it to your USB drive and run it directly from there to Lock/Unlock. It is that easy!
Lockngo encrypts the drive’s file systems and hides its content. It is perfect for USB flash drives and portable hard drives. When locked, Lockngo does not allow to write new files and does not show the locked data. Lockngo can secure any disk size in a matter of seconds.
As mentioned before, Lockngo is not installed on your PC, but directly copied onto the removable media – once you run it, it allows you to set a password for the media and then encrypts and locks the content, so that it can only be accessed with the proper password. When you insert the protected media, all you can see is the lockngo executable, once you run it and enter the proper password, it will reveal the content. Lockngo uses a unique patent pending cutting edge technology to guarantee the security of your information.
The size of Lockngo is just 536kb and is always rated high by the experts. In this fast moving world, where we carry all the important data in those small flash drives, it is very important to secure it and be sure that it is never misused even if you forget it somewhere or lose it or someone steals it. Be it a business user or a marketing/sales guy or a lawyer or even a home user, each one of us will find a reason to have a software like Lockngo in our kitty.
