Samsung Announces SSD With With Password And Fingerprint Lock Biometrics




Samsung has released a Portable Solid State Drive (SSD) that comes with a biometric security  option for users to protect their files and private data stored on the drive.

The T7 Touch has a sleek and compact design based on USB 3.2 Gen 2 standard offering up to 1050 MB/s transfer speed, twice as fast as its predecessor, the T5, and up to 9.5 times faster than external HDDs.

The SSD has a solid metal aluminium casing, which Samsung says protects it against drops up to two meters (about 6 and half feet), and as well there's a Motion LED indicator which allows the user to determine the status of the device.

Now to the selling point of this drive. The T7 Touch comes with a built-in fingerprint sensor, password protection and AES 256-bit hardware encryption. Samsung says the user can register up to four different fingerprints, which makes it easy to share access with friends and family members.
