Privacy Guardian

When we lend our USB flash disk to our friends, we will always be worried about the confidential stuff inside. But there is a special key,which is a recognizer in the end of this USB flash disk. The files inside will be encrypted when we connect the key to the USB flash disk, while be concealed when we pull up the key. The key is the sole way to open the encrypted files. When we lend it to our friends, we just need to pull up the key to protect our privacy, and it doesn't influence the USB. With this key, we can avoid the sophisticated proceeding of encrypting and protect the confidential files when it is not connected to the computer.
