If we can put passwords to our USB ports, no one can transfer data from that USB without the correct password. You can protect your private and very confidential information from anyone by following these steps:

  1. To lock USB ports by a password, we have to use special software named as "MY USB ONLY". First you have to install this software to your computer. Here is the Download link for this Software:

  2. After installing this software you will be able to see a USB icon on system tray of your computer. Double click on it and select "General Setup".
  3. Then type your desired password in the field called "Required password and click allow. After that you can customize your USB ports as your wish.

You can save your important files on to a USB flash drive and keep those files from unauthorized access by locking your computer’s USB port with a password. Before, there is a way if you don’t want others to use any USB flash drives on your machine by disabling the USB port right from the BIOS. This will surely prevent others from accessing and using the USB port of your computer but gives a lot of work because you need to go back and access the BIOS again every time you want to use the USB port.

But if you don’t want to do this, you can disable the USB port of your computer by denying permission to these files:

  • %SystemRoot%\Inf\Usbstor.pnf
  • %SystemRoot%\Inf\Usbstor.inf

The “%SystemRoot%” is the location where the “Windows” folder is installed, usually “C:\Windows”. For the complete instructions to begin disabling the USB port, see Prevent users from using USB?
