#Giveaway and Review - HIDEIN Key

<a style="display: none;" href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP5e9ef26db445c2c9dcfb1dd64fda9917"><span></span></a>

I am pleased to be reviewing the HIDEIN key today and offering a giveaway as well!

About the product:

The HIDEIN™ key is a military grade 256-bit encryption USB thumb drive that can protect your confidential files with the highest security possible. It uses something called an "encrypt-chip" to securely create partitions on your hard drive that only you can see. The HIDEIN™ key is, essentially a "key" to unlock your hidden files. 

Take the HIDEIN key out of the USB slot on your computer and the partitions are hidden. Worried about losing the HIDEIN™ key? Worry no further. The HIDEIN™ key uses a backup system when registering that allows you to download a unique code which is sent directly to your email. If you lose the HIDEIN™ key, simply purchase a new one and use the unique code to access the once hidden partitions on your home or office hard drive. The HIDEIN™ key can also encrypt files on itself. It uses the same military grade 256-bit encryption system that is used by many governments around the world for top secret documents. 

Now you can keep your files just as safe with your very own personalized HIDEIN™ key. Comes with a free lanyard and the key and lanyard can be customized for your business with your very own logo! 

My Review:

I received a 2 GB USB HIDEIN Key to review and can offer one for a lucky Acting Balanced winner!

As identity theft, plagerism  and other threats continue to grow, the HIDEIN key is the perfect product for ensuring that files you want to keep private remain private.  Although I don't keep military secrets or million dollar formulas on my laptop, I do keep files that contain my private, personal information and also names and addresses of friends and relatives, and Wayne publishes and writes articles on a variety of topics, so testing out the HIDEIN key makes perfect sense... for me and for you. Everyone has files that they would not like others to see, so using HIDEIN key makes it nearly impossible for those files to be stolen!

I really like that I can encrypt files on more than one computer - my laptop, Wayne's laptop - any computer with a USB port!  And it is incredibly easy!

Another great feature is that I can also use the HIDEIN key as a regular or encrypted USB drive, so transferring files and having files on the go is easy too!
