The 4 best free USB stick encryption programs


Creating an encrypted USB Stick is a first-class option to securely store our personal data as well as data related to our work or files that we do not want to fall into the hands of third parties. In this way we ensure our privacy since in case we lose our stick but also for any other reason no one will be able to read them. Today we present in detail 4 of the best free applications that we can use for this purpose.


UWall is a smart mobile application that will help us in our purpose and supports the creation of multiple encrypted partitions on a removable disk or flash memory disk where each encrypted partition has its own password. The difference of this application in relation to others is that you can divide a stick into several compartments either secretly or openly and that for each of them will have its own code. But let's see how it works now.


1. We put our stick in the USB port of our computer and run the application, in the panel that will open you will see the connected USB devices in your computer. Right-click on the desired USB device and then left-click Disk Encryption Wizard.

2. Select Crypted, specify the Partition size, enter a strong password and check the Mount and Format box.

3. A hidden partition has now been added to our stick, in case we now want to unmount it we right click on the Partition and then click on Unmound.

4. Finally, in the same way to re-attach it, this time we click on the Mound option and on the next tab we add our password so that we can see and manage the contents of the files on our stick.


Rohos Mini Drive is a free application that protects a USB flash drive by creating a hidden and encrypted partition on the disk. If you have a lot of private files on the USB drive and want to keep them secret, you can protect them with a password and strong encryption using the Rohos Mini Drive. It also offers a portable encryption tool for working with an encrypted partition on any computer. Automatically detects the USB flash drive and sets the properties for the encrypted partition. You just have to provide a password to protect it.

With just one click you can save your first file to a protected volume. Encryption is automatic and on-site. You can access your secret drive by entering the correct password. Disk notifications help you know when the secured partition is connected or disconnected.

With the Rohos Portable Disk Browser you can work with a password-protected partition on any computer without administrator privileges or by installing additional software. Works like Windows Explorer, displaying folders and files. 

On-The-Fly encryption without administrator privileges is now possible with the new File Virtualization technology. The folder hide feature will allow you to encrypt, password-protect, and lock any application folder in C: \ Program Files \. 

This will allow you to encrypt and protect important information in your Google Chrome profile such as history, favorites, form data, credit card numbers, saved passwords, cookies, etc. or even encrypt and hide your Skype profile with chat history, downloaded files, your contacts, Skype password and other applications.

After installing the application you will find in your stick the Rohos Disk Portable application that allows you to use your encrypted partition on any computer without administrator privileges or the installation of additional software and the Rohos mini.exe file with which you can access the your hidden drive on any computer.

In its free version it is limited to creating encrypted disks up to 8GB


USB Safeguard is a portable software that allows you to protect your private files with a password on your removable drive with a 256 bits secure AES key. Protects your data by creating a virtual drive that is password protected on portable storage devices (USB flash drive, HDD, SSD, memory card). 

Once configured, no one will be able to access your private files without the correct password. How to use it is quite simple, after downloading the application, copy it to your stick and run it from there. 

Enter a strong password, but write it down somewhere because without it you will not be able to open the encrypted partition you create. Finally, add the documents or files you want to hide. 

From there, every time you want to add or remove files or read your documents, you have to run the USBSafeguard application through your stick and enter your password. In its free version it supports the creation of encrypted partitions up to 4GB.


USB Flash Security is a simple application that can help us lock our stick so that no one can see what we have stored. So, we do not need to worry, even if we lose it, since in order to gain access one must know the password. 

The whole process is quite simple. After downloading and installing the application on your computer, run it and after we have connected a USB stick to a port we click on the install button. Here you have to be careful, the password is a very important parameter, so when you enter your password, make sure it is not of type 12345, etc.

Finally, confirm by confirming your action.

From there, every time you plug your stick into a USB port, you'll need to unlock it before you can save new data or delete it. To do this, open your stick and click on the icon UsbEnter, enter your password and you're done. Note that the free version of the application we present can manage sticks with a total capacity of up to 4 GB.
