I have covered several drives here in the past and to be fair some of these are quite the kit with James Bond ringing about them and this one is no different but it has a trick up its sleeve compared to others when it comes to the tech aspect.

It's hard not to recommend the SecureDrive BT SSD. It's protective, physicaly well designed, and offers the novelty of Face ID unlocking. What's not to like about that?

Product Overview
Product Overview
Gadget Diary
The Chris Voss Show

Do my data or encryption key get passed over Bluetooth signal?

No. Bluetooth is simply the communication channel. The authentication is handled via secure server/app exchange. Neither your data nor the encryption key can be extracted by any side channel attacks or Bluetooth listener.

How do I unlock/lock the drive?

You must download the SecureData Lock® mobile app. After installing it you will be able to pair the device (make sure your Bluetooth is turned ON). Once synced, you can use the app to log in.

Once you have successfully unlocked the drive you will be able to change user settings and swipe left on the device name to lock it. Once the drive is locked you must unlock it again to mount the drive.

Where do I get the app?

The SecureData Lock® and SecureData Lock® RM are available to download via the Apple Store or Google Play. Type “SecureData Lock” in the search field to find and install the app on any mobile device.

Can I use my Face ID or Touch ID to unlock my device?

Yes. Using the SecureData Lock® app you can select to authenticate via Touch ID or Face ID (Apple only).

If I forget my password, does anyone have a copy or can I reset it?

No. There are absolutely no backdoors nor resets. After 10 consecutive, incorrect attempts the anti-hacking, brute-force self-defense mechanism wipes all user data and drive attributes.

If I reset my drive can I still use it or is it destroyed?

The drive will revert to factory settings, become unformatted, and the default drive name and all user data will be gone. The drive requires formatting for continued use.

If I reset my drive can SecureData get my files back?

No. Resetting the drive activates a crypto erase command which deletes then regenerates the encryption key. Once the key is gone there is absolutely no way to get it back. Even though encrypted data will be on the drive, there will not be a viable way to decrypt it.

If I lost my drive, can I reset it remotely to delete my data?

Yes, that’s what “remote wipe” is about. If it’s a stand-alone device without a Remote Management subscription, then the user can perform a remote wipe.

Can I add Remote Management later?

Yes. SecureDrive BT products allow adding Remote Management to complement and enhance your purchase. You can switch from SecureData Lock® (non-remote managed) to SecureData Lock® RM (remote managed) status without installing any software—the device will just need to be provisioned using the SecureData Lock® Admin app.

Do I need an internet connection or a cell signal to use the BT Drive app?

While using the SecureData Lock® app you do not need to be connected to the internet or have a cell signal in order to unlock the drive. However, some settings require an internet connection or cell phone signal, including dual-factor authentication, password recovery, and remote wipe. Alternatively, if your device is remote managed you must unlock it via the SecureData Lock® RM app which requires an internet connection or cell service.
