Hello, I want to purchase Transporter Secured Data Storage, but I have to be sure that it is really safe. What can you tell me about that. Is it really as safe as they tell me?

Portable data storage devices are pretty popular these days. Transporter is a convenient and really stylish device that will be perfect for storing all your data. It has 500GB of internal memory and it is really handy when it comes to storing your backups or sensitive data. Transporter's most distinctive feature is its access sharing options. We should also mention that it is able to create and store copies of all your files without your participation in the process. All the data you store there can be sharable with the people you specify. Also the device is accessible from anywhere in the world over the Internet.
The device is pretty safe when it is connected to your wired network. It uses up-to-date encryption protocols and simply bans all the users that try to connect to the device remotely and are not on the specified allowed users list. We may say that Transporter combines benefits of cloud storage and the security of the off-line one.
But we at jammer-store.com have detected a couple of possible issues that you can face while using that device. We've already mentioned that it is better to connect the device to your router with a wire, but it can be also connected wirelessly, using a simple Wi-Fi connection. That may appear to be most vulnerable spot of this device because Wi-Fi networks can be hacked. Transporter uses WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption protocols and there are lots of applications for hacking them.
In that case we recommend you to use wired network connection, but if it is impossible – try to block Wi-Fi connection when you don't urgently need it. You can do it with our Wi-Fi signal blocker.
Thanks for your question, I hope I've managed to help.
