Turn any computer into a fast, secure, and private one.

  1. Plug the StartMeStick™ in and do whatever you like online.
  2. Pull it out and the StartMeStick leaves no trace on your computer, or your StartMeStick.
  3. The StartMeStick doesn't slow down or get infected because it doesn't save anything.

It is like brand new every time you use it.

Take it Anywhere

Clip it on your keychain and use it on as many computers as you like.

Designed for what you do on the Internet.

Reuse your computer

When Microsoft stops support for Windows 7 this January, up to 40% of the world's PCs will stop receiving security updates and will no longer be safe to use on the Internet. If Microsoft or Apple has ended support for your operating system, or, if your system is simply not working properly, you can still use your perfectly good computer. Use the StartMeStick to turn it into a fast, secure, and private one.

Help the Environment

Researchers at the United Nations University who track e-waste report that since 2000, e-waste amounts have grown from 20 million to 50 million tonnes per year in 2019. They forecast the amount of e-waste will more than double by 2050, to reach approximately 111 million tonnes per year.1 To put that number in perspective: 111 million tonnes is about 28 million elephants. There are currently less than 0.5 million elephants left on Earth. Use a StartMeStick to eliminate the need to replace computers when they slow down or stop receiving security updates.
