WD Security | safe and accessible

WD understands the importance of your photos, music, videos and files so My Passport Ultra and My Passport for Mac comes equipped with some powerful technology to help keep your digital life secure.

Keep your private stuff private

You have a password on your mobile phone, why not on your My Passport? You store and back up your personal files and photos on it and it's important to keep them secure.

It's easy, just set a password on your My Passport and WD Security activates 256-bit AES hardware encryption. Unlike software-based solutions, WD's hardware encryption has essentially no impact on performance.

Portable security

WD Security is hardware based and built into the drive. Your files are accessible and safe even when you plug your My Passport Ultra or My Passport for Mac into a computer that does not have WD Security installed. Enter your password and the self-contained security application on the drive kicks into operation.

Auto-unlock option

For convenient, quick access, you can set WD Security to automatically unlock the drive when you are working on a known computer.
