Disable/Enable USB Port

 

Restrict Access to USB by disabling the USB Ports. In many cases of the data leak, the data is copied from a system using USB. What if we will disable the USB ports, so no data copy as no access. Thus, one more step towards security. 

  • Go to Run or press Windows + R.
  • Type regedit 
  • Click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE 
  • Go to SYSTEM
  • Click on CurrentControlSet 
  • Click on Services
  • Go to USBSTOR 
  • Double click on Start
  • Now change the value data with the number of ports you want to use for USB. Zero is no ports enable. To enable the maximum number of ports, count the USB Ports in the Device and enter the number.
  • Now press OK and refresh your desktop.

We hope this helps. If any suggestions or doubts you can add a comment and we will reply as soon as possible.
