An encrypted USB thumb drive is the safest way to carry any sensitive files.
Unfortunately, you cannot password protect your entire USB drive, like you can password protect your PC or smartphone. Secure tools all work with encryption. Unless you want to invest in an encrypted flash drive with hardware encryption, you can use software applications to achieve a similar level of USB protection.
