Protecting Encryption Keys on USB Pendrive by Master Password

To prevent the possibility of stealing passwords from your USB Flash Drive, Advanced Encryption Package has special feature to protect all passwords on the USB Pendrive by single Master Password. It will be required to provide the Master Password to use any password from this USB Flash Drive.

Please note - if you use Master Password, you can be absolutely sure that your passwords are 100% protected. AEP PRO uses AES 256-bit encryption to protect keys on USB Pendrive(s).

To enable protection, click the Encryption... button in the USB Passwords Storage Tool dialog.

How it works

When you connect the Pendrive into the USB port of your computer and when the Pendrive was protected by Master Password  - you will see the following window:

USB Pendrive protected by Master Password

As you see, the passwords are hidden (really, AEP cannot access them because AEP does not know the Master Password).

Click the Enter Master Password... button, prove the Master Password and now it will be possible to use the master password.

 The Master Password will be forgotten from the memory of AEP PRO when the USB Pendrive is disconnected.
