Having reviewed several of these in the past we have now the Secure Drive BT HDD option in for review and as expected the technology here keeps getting better all the time and the size keeps getting smaller too which is more beneficial to the user for carrying around data and keeping it safe or for the likes of me I keep in my pocket or one of my tech bags in a secure pocket. Also storage options are much wider than before giving someone choice rather than some expensive standard offers you might see.
The Secure Drive HDD is one of multiple offerings the company has and they have a nice product line up to suit everyone and their job is to keep your data safe and we do not need reminding of what can happen now when something goes wrong if you make a data breach and those words GDPR are mentioned. Given I find out data regulator more talk than action from what has been seen so far it is an integral part of any business to keep information safe and this company offers this in several ways and you should check them out. As for this review we are looking at the apps the company has on both Android and iOS which works with this device in particular they also have a keypad version too but this one is more high tech with face unlock built in via your smartphone which I find really futuristic and similar to the SSD option we reviewed before.. HDDs are now more efficient and generally cheaper.. We check out this and how it works below in the video on both Android and iOS apps and go through the process.
In short I have been using the Secure Drive Products for some years now and can easily recommend these for ease of use and knowing that my data or anyone else’s I might have is safe and will remain that way no matter which product I use from their portfolio.
