    Perhaps you could indicate which methods of password-protecting a USB you have tried thus far, and also why they did not work for you?

    What do you mean by "password protect"?

    Encrypt? For Windows, VeraCrypt. For Linux, I prefer LUKS.

    Why not? It's at least open source.

    On the "can't trust" scale, I'd say that Windows is #1 :)

    You use Windows but you doubt VeraCrypt? Seems legit. I guess you could use BitLocker then.

    TrueCrypt was open source but there was something very fishy in that software and for some strange reason it ended

    Which is why the audit of VeraCrypt came out clean.

    There is no reason. Actually there is not thinking. It is feeling.

    So you don't care if you're secure, as long as you feel secure?
