WD redesigns its My Passport and My Book hard drives

Western Digital has introduced modern redesigns of its My Passport, My Passport for Mac, and My Book hard drive lines made in partnership with fuseproject, an industrial design and branding firm.

The new drives sport password protection and hardware encryption so customers will love their hard drive as much as they cherish the content stored on it. As part of the reimagined design, the My Passport drives will come in six colors: black, yellow, red, white, orange and blue.

My Passport portable hard drives fit in the palm of your hand. They now sport a new design with a textured bottom and password protection with 256-bit AES hardware encryption. They come in up to 4TB capacity.

My Passport for Mac drives also come in models with up to 4TB of storage. They’re formatted for macOS and are Time Machine ready for easy backup.

My Book desktop hard drive provides high capacity backup for Mac and PCs. Features include password protection with hardware encryption and automatic backup with included WD Backup software. My Books come in up to 8TB capacity.

My Passport and My Passport for Mac portable hard drives are protected by a 2-year limited warranty and are available from and at select retailers and distributors. My Passport drives have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price starting at US$79.99, and the My Passport for Mac drive has a starting MSRP of $79.99. My Book desktop hard drives are protected by a two-year limited warranty and have a MSRP starting at $129.99.
