USB drives are excellent for storing data. Their small size allows them to take data on the go. USB's are small, inexpensive and can store massive amounts of files. But one of the disadvantages to USB's are the fact that they are small. They are lost or stolen easily. Data on USB's can fall into the wrong hands. Sensitive data like passwords can be lost, only to give a stranger the access to your accounts.
There are many USB protection software on the internet, but many are not useful for everyday usage. Some USB protection software available are Bitlocker, Folder lock and USB protect. Each has its own disadvantage, like requiring Admin rights or having Windows 7 Ultimate. Many USB protection software also isn't free. Many of these also require admin rights. In the case of USB protect, you need to set your password each time you are about to remove your drive.
The Portableapps.com platform allows you to have portable software, passwords saved in portable apps like Firefox or Chrome can be lost. A good idea is to have a new feature available in the Portableapps.com platform to prevent sensitive data from being lost to anyone that may come across your missing USB drive. Everyone can sleep better at night knowing that their data on their missing USB drives will not end up in another's hands.
Hope this feature will be added!
