If you're so concerned for your privacy, why have you granted other
administrative privileges to your computer, and why are *you* leaving
*your* card reader and *your* SD card unsecured?

What's really worrying is that you're expecting the OS to protect you
from your own sloppy habits of leaving things lying about where curious
minds can find them. Software can't protect you from yourself.
If the contents of the SD card are so very sensitive, simply put it out
of others reach.
