Lexar has announced a new flash drive that features a fingerprint reader to protect its content from unauthorised access. The JumpDrive Fingerprint F35 can record up to ten fingerprints to allow it to be shared between users, and it comes with the fingerprint software already loaded.

Lexar claims recognising a user’s fingerprint takes less than a second, and the drives have read speeds of up to 150MB/s. While normal memory is compatible with Mac, PC and Linux, the fingerprint software is Windows-only.
