Ironkey Forgotten Passwords
What happens if I forget my Ironkey password?
It is not possible in any way to get access to stored information without the correct password. There are no back-doors and tests by independent security labs and customers have confirmed this over and over again. It is statistically and technically impossible to retrieve data.
IRONKEY BASIC Models – Password Try Count is 10. Default setting after 10 incorrect tries is self-destruct rendering device and data un-useable, however, it can be set just to wipe data only, leaving the device re-useable.
IRONKEY Personal Models – Password Try Count is 10. Default setting after 10 incorrect tries is self-destruct rendering device and data un-useable, however, using the my.ironkey.com account users can securely back-up and retrieve their password using two factor authentication and hint questions.
IRONKEY Enterprise Models – Password Try Count is 10 (default) although can be set between1 to 200. As this is a managed service if a user forgets their password it can be reset remotely by the administrator. No information is lost and the user is securely back to work in minutes.
