FlashSheild is a secure flash drive with a fingerprint sensor built into the device body. When it is plugged in, the sensor automatically reads the thumb-print. If the thumb-print does not match, the intruder will be presented with an alternative memory space. Therefore, an unauthorized user who is not aware of the original content of the flash drive is mislead to believe that he got access to the actual device. The project won the second place in MangoHacks 2019.
