Introducing ArmorLock™–The revolutionary security platform that’s amazingly simple to use and won’t slow you down.

The ArmorLock™ app is the key to unlocking the G-DRIVE™ ArmorLock™ SSD. We built the ArmorLock™ Security Platform from the ground up with technology that’s amazingly simple to use and won’t slow you down. Use the app to unlock the drive with a tap – no password needed. The G-DRIVE ArmorLock SSD delivers pro-grade performance and ultra-rugged features that give you durability you can rely on. It’s next-generation security with new-generation simplicity.

Remembering passwords, entering codes, and downloading software slows down access to critical content. We’ve removed access barriers without sacrificing content security. With ArmorLock™ technology, your phone is your key, leveraging your phone’s biometric authentication to simply and quickly access your content with the tap of a button.

Easily control who gets access to your drive for seamless collaboration. Sending the drive to a user at a different location? Before you ship, use the app to authorize their access to the drive with your favorite email or messaging service.

With the app, you can format your drive to one of the compatible file systems and when your content is no longer needed, use the secure erase feature to confidently erase the drive with the tap of a button.

Want to see where your G-DRIVE ArmorLock SSD was last accessed? The app shows you on a map the location where the drive was last unlocked.

Key ArmorLock App Features:
- Simple drive unlock with your phone – no password needed
- Control who gets access to your drive
- Add and manage multiple ArmorLock drives
- Secure erase and self-formatting
- View where your drive was last unlocked

Can’t get past License Agreement

I would love to try this app out with my new ArmorLock drive, but I can’t get past the License Agreement. Even though I’ve scrolled to bottom of Agreement, the “Accept” button remain greyed out and un-clickable. I’ve tried deleting app and reinstalling, with no luck. Wrote to Support, but haven’t heard back yet.

You’d think they would have tested this before releasing...?

UPDATE: Support got back to me. They asked me if my Display Zoom on iPhone was set to “zoomed”, which it was. I set to standard and was then able to click to agree to the License Agreement. Hopefully they’ll fix this bug in future updates and save people the frustration I experienced. App now working properly with drive.
