I am curious just how strong the password would be if it only has 10 digits and no alphabet characters as this picture above suggests?
More importantly, does it “wipe” the contents (throw away the passphrased key) after a certain number of unsuccessful attempts?
If it doesn’t, then it can probably be bruteforced pretty easily.

Without a lot more information, there is no way to know if this thing is any good, or just security theater. Does it work like an iphone and have a large key in a chip that will erase it after a few bad pass codes, or does it just use the input as a key and give you as many tries as you want?
Who cares, as this would make a nice decoy, while you real data reside on an easily hidden micro SD card. Just fill it with data you do not mind revealing, and give them the password if they are persistent enough.
I purchased several 32GB USB flash drives for less. Comes with optional encryption software and can be used on PC and Mac.
