    Nowadays, all the Linux OSes come with auto-mount enabled.

    If your OS doesn't have auto-mount enabled, you have to add an entry for your device in /etc/fstab file.

    Example:

    This entry means the device name is /dev/sdb1, it will be mounted on /mnt/usb(provided the folder exists), the USB is having VFAT filesystem, can be read/write by all users, and it is auto-mounted.
