In this video, we will walk you through the simple setup process to get your Kingston IronKey Locker Plus 50 Encrypted USB Flash Drive ready to use.

Getting Started
To get started, insert the LP50 directly into your laptop or desktop. The LP50 can be used with compatible PC or Mac devices. When your OS detects the drive, select the Ironkey.exe option in File Explorer for Windows, or for macOS double-click the IRONKEY volume on your desktop then double-click the Ironkey application to start the initialization process. Follow the prompts to select your language, review and accept the license agreement.

Creating a Password
Create a password using either the Complex or Passphrase mode. Complex Password must be between 6 and 16 characters and contain at least 3 of the following:, upper case, lower case, numerical digit, special character. Passphrase Password must be between 10 and 64 characters and can contain any combination of numbers, letters or special characters. Here you will also have the option to enable Admin and User password roles which allow for Multi-password use that the Admin can manage, along with additional features that can be useful. If you want to enable or disable this feature after your LP50 has been set up, you will need to reset the drive and follow these steps to set it up again. Choose your mode, enter your password and a hint to help if it’s forgotten, select “enable Admin and User passwords” and then click “next” to proceed with setting up the User password. Please note that the mode chosen here applies to both Admin and User passwords, and it cannot be changed unless the LP50 is reset. Proceed to create a password for the User role and click next. On this screen, you have the option to enter your contact information, which can include your name, company information, and a way to reach you like a phone number or email address. This is helpful in the event your drive is lost and the information is available for the finder to return it to you. Click ‘OK’ to complete the setup process and unlock the LP50 to securely store your data. To review any changes made in the setup process, simply unplug the drive and plug back in.

Additional Features
After setting up your LP50, you will have the ability to accept the optional USBtoCloud license so that your data is automatically backed up to your cloud storage every time you log in. Or you can choose to decline and will no longer see this feature.
