Elephone U-Disk – a flash drive with a built-in fingerprint scanner

Elephone U-Disk – a flash drive with a built-in fingerprint scanner Fingerprint sensors have already become almost an integral part of any smartphone, tablet and some laptops. The Chinese company Elephone went further and used technology to protect data on a USB drive. In addition to the fingerprint scanner, the U-Disk model is equipped with a complex encryption algorithm, and its memory is divided into two parts – for general and private use. Any user can see the data from the common part. Access to the second part of the memory is possible only after successful authorization through a fingerprint scanner. This means that in case of theft, an attacker will not be able to use hidden information, unless, of course, he has the right finger on the owner of the flash drive. By scanning speed and speed, the Elephone U-Disk scanner can be compared with similar sensors on budget smartphones. In addition to the above, the product has an all-metal casing and support for the operating systems Windows, MacOS, Linux and Android. Release date and cost of new items have not yet been announced.
