How does IronKey’s Secure Web Browsing work?

Many users ask us about secure web browsing on the Ironkey.  This is enabled through the built-in FireFox browser, activated by plugging the IronKey into a computer, clicking the Mozilla Firefox icon in the control panel, which opens a secure internet connection and connects to the web using the Secure Session Service.

The Secure Session Service uses an online router called ‘Tor’ to allow the user to browse fast and securely online.

What does it secure? Valuable and confidential information such as IP address, your banking passwords and pin numbers, or auto-login information for payment sites such as Paypal.  This information cannot be traced by hackers as it is not stored on the computer.
