I've been doing tons of research, but cannot find a good answer anywhere. I need to encrypt a USB thumbdrive with the below requirements:
- It must be compatible (able to read and write to) with both Windows and Mac OS, so it must be formatted as exFAT (correct me if I'm wrong), thus this means I cannot use the inbuilt Disk Utility that comes with Mac OS, since it doesn't allow you to encrypt exFAT
- The Windows computer that I am planning to use it on will not allow me to install any programs on it, nor will I have administrator privileges, because it is a work computer. I looked at programs like Truecrypt, Veracrypt, Bitlocker, but while they all have the option of installing a portable version of the software on the USB thumbdrive itself, they still require some form of installation on the computer you are planning to decrypt the USB thumbdrive with. So these won't work either
Do I have no choice but to buy a pre-encrypted USB thumbdrive in exFAT format? Thanks!
