You can customize the following settings to secure connection:

Enable traffic encryption – All data, sent from or to the USB device, will be encoded. Note, that traffic encryption may slow down the communication speed.

Enable authorization – Password is set on the server side, and the same password should be entered on the client side in order to get access to the USB device data.


Note: 
On Windows, connection encryption, authorization and traffic compression settings, as well as device description, cannot be changed on the go.

In Linux version, you can change traffic encryption and/or compression settings on the go for already shared devices. Just double-click in the corresponding field opposite the required shared device and configure them as needed.
