To access read or write access control of USB storage devices,

  1. Launch SecureAPlus > App Settings

  1. On the App Setting menu, click on Application Whitelisting > Removable Device

  1. Note that by default read & write to USB external storage devices are allowed.

Users can also whitelist specific external USB storage devices and doing so will allow these devices to have full read & write functionality regardless of your selected settings.
