Data nor really secure

I sut up my flash card, made a password, loaded some files on it, but it appears that I can access all these files without entering a password.  Am I missing something here?

Dear member of SanDisk Community, welcome.

Mmm… You can expand with more detail, please.

Meanwhile, see link:

I mean I can plug the drive into any computer and access files in the vault without entering a password


This is correct because you are still able to see all the .dat files that are your actuall files that are stored freely into the usb drive. However in order to decrypt the files you still need to open the actuall vault with the password. Thats why its recomended to make many backups of your files in order to prevent a data loss.

Good luck.
