When you order a Keep Stick we send you a Keep USB stick via post and an Activation Key code via email. When you receive your stick you enter the code as part of the built in secure activation process to create your personal encrypted account on the stick. This process also automatically sets up your connected VPN and personal encrypted email services. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you do not receive your Activation Key within 24 hours of making your purchase.
The connected services included with your Keep Stick are:
- The Keep VPN, which encrypts your local internet connection, protecting you from WiFi snooping and shielding your activities from the internet service provider.
- A Keep email account, with an address of your choice, and a personal private/public encryption key pair for sending and receiving PGP end-to-end encrypted emails. It’s easy to exchange public keys with other Keep users.
The Keep software update service, which downloads updates to your stick for product enhancements and security updates.
Don’t worry if after one year you do not re-subscribe to our connected services, your Keep Stick will continue to function without using Keep's VPN and Email services. Your stick will continue to receive any available security updates.
