The Kingston urDrive software comes pre-loaded on the Kingston DataTraveler USB. It provides apps, games, music and a safe Internet surfing environment for kids with the FoozKids. The urDrive software adds fun to the regular USB flash drives we usually use. Instead of just adding pictures, videos and music to a boring USB drive, you can have fun playing games too.Kingston urdrive software usb datatraveler

Keeping Kids Safe Online

Have you ever traveled to Grandma’s or stayed with friends for a few days and your kids want to play on the computer? You are unsure about the safety issues because Grandma does not have online safety software for kids installed on her computer. If you have the Kingston DataTraveler 109 8GB (affiliate) with Kingston urDrive software, you plug it into the USB slot on Grandma’s computer and open up the FoozKids application on the urDrive software and your kids can safely use the Internet.

Kingston urDrive Cons

While the size of the Kingston urDrive makes it very portable, it also makes it easy to lose. Since it has the software for kids, I would have preferred it was bigger so that it’s easier for kids to hold and use (and not lose.) But it’s a “con” I can overcome!
