WHY WOULD I NEED THIS PRODUCT?
Redkey stops your personal information being discovered when a computer is disposed of. Personal Information or any other data can easily be found on computers - even after it's been deleted. Data is stored on the "hard drive" inside every computer. The Redkey uses a special process to digitally wipe your computer’s hard drive in a way that is much more secure than just "deleting" or "resetting." The Redkey is a heavy-duty wipe solution for when you need to be 100% certain the job is done properly.

HOW DO I USE IT?
Simply plug your Redkey in to a spare USB port on the computer to be wiped, then switch on power. It’s designed to work automatically, and once loaded - no further interaction is required. Your computer will start to wipe after 60 seconds (this can be skipped if urgent) and after an hour or more, the wipe process is completed. When the wipe is complete, this is visually indicated on your screen, and also indicated by audio beeps every 5 minutes. Wipe duration depends on several factors, mainly the size of the drive(s) in your computer. The Redkey will wipe up to 6 in parallel.
WILL IT WORK ON MY COMPUTER?
RedKey USB works on most home / business type computers with a spare USB port available. This includes PC's, Desktop's & Laptops made since 2000 & Mac / MacBook’s made since 2006. 32+64 Bit supported. X86 and above. It works with both HDD Hard Drives and the latest Solid State drive technology including SSD, eMMC, M.2 and nVME drives and combinations thereof. The Redkey can work with either a keyboard, a mouse, or both (or even neither if pre-configured to do so.) It can even work on partially broken computers where you can't see the screen properly. For this reason, audio buzzer signals are included so you can hear when a computer has been wiped. It works on both PC's & Macs including laptop variants. Redkey may not work on some server / virtual / specialist type computers.
DOES IT EXPIRE?
No. The Redkey is a "pay-once" product and is designed to last for years. You can use it to wipe as many computers as you want, as many times as you wish. It never runs out.
- Works on most computers
- Simple, easy to use navigation menu.
- Securely erase up to 6 drives at once.
- Automatic 60 second countdown to wipe.
- Mouse & keyboard support.
- Audio notifications (where hardware supports)
- Advanced area for experienced users. Select individual disks etc.

The Redkey is available on its own, or as part of a kit containing other coloured keys. The other coloured keys are not the same as the Redkey.
The Blue & Green keys are simply regular, empty, USB sticks - set in the same style as the Redkey. They are just for storing your data files like any other regular USB stick, however - they are manufactured to the same high quality specification as the Redkey.
Use them prior to, or following the use of the Redkey to store or transfer files that you actually want to keep. You must make sure you back up any data you want to keep before using the Redkey, because once it's gone, it's gone forever. The Blue and Green keys are optional extras that help simplify your backup and restoration tasks if applicable, but the Redkey will still work fine on its own, without them. Full comprehensive instructions and advice is included in a printed instruction manual covering various uses for each key.
NEW FEATURES FOR 2019!
Remote Update Service. Update your Redkey online to the latest version of software whenever future updates are released.

Enhanced, multi-stage wipe process. The Redkey erase process now combines multiple data erasing techniques to further make data recovery impossible. The new "Cryptographic" function encrypts your disk then discards the keys to effectivley make data recovery impossible. The legacy "Binary" algorithm uses conventional digital erasure techniques to overwrite every single bit of data on a disk drive. Internal wipe coming soon. Each Algorithm can be selected individually within the advanced area.
Verification. Following a wipe, the Redkey scans your computer for any remaining data to make sure everything is erased! Works independently of the wipe process for autonomy.
Reporting. When wipe is complete download and save a progress report as a text file on any Fat32 formatted memory stick.
