Apacer AH650 features a fingerprint scanner

USB flash drives offer everyone a very convenient way of carrying data but they have one common drawback – the information on them can be easily read by the wrong person unless there are some security features. But which technology offers the best security?

Apacer has the answer – this Taiwanese company has equipped its AH650 USB flash drive with a fingerprint reader that matches your fingers with the profiles inside and only then will you be able to manipulate the data inside. The drive comes in two colors – gold or silver – and offers two capacities – 32 GB or 64 GB. The Apacer AH650 also supports USB 3.0 and this makes the flash drive capable of reaching 130 MB/sec of read speed. The AH650 has enough memory to hold ten fingerprint profiles inside and allows users to easily change the profiles in case of need. The drive also functions in an unusual way – the memory inside is divided in two chunks – the first one is accessible when you plug the AH650 inside a USB port, while the second chunk of internal memory is only accessible after the drive scans and then successfully matches your fingerprints to a profile inside.

Unfortunately there’s no information how much the Apacer AH650 costs.
