McAfee encrypt using removable media protection – would it let my PD connect to other computers? PFA Screengrab.

Hi all,

Please check attached screenshot

My office laptop uses this McAfee Removable Media protection. It says it will encrypt my pen drive. If I click on “Yes”, would that encryption be applicable only to my office computer, or to ever other computer I insert my PD into?

My concern is getting encrypted by McAfee on office computer should not hinder my chances of connecting my PD to any other computer, lest I lose access to all my precious data.

My confusion is if I were to encrypt my pen drive using McAfee software, would I be able to access those files if I were to attach the same pen drive to my personal laptop/ my personal mobile phone/ any other laptop.

My dilemma here is McAfee’s encryption would make my pen drive inaccessible in any other computer except the one which company has provided.

Any forthcoming feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Ed
