    "The best security tool I have found"

    May 30, 2011  |   By JasonJosephm

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    This program is extremely easy to use. I use it to encrypt and hide sensitive files on a shared computer.

    Cons

    The user manual is online. It would be great if they provided one in the PDF format or another offline format.

    Summary

    If you are looking for file encryption software that is effective and easy to use, this is it.

    "Awesome - simply the best"

    February 18, 2011  |   By rizzo1989

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    This is the best security software that I have ever used. It is simple to use and very straight-forward. And moreover, it is fool-proof.

    Cons

    All features work great.

    Summary

    You cannot hack it, unlike most of the other security software packages. All of the other ones have a backdoor that anyone can find on google. This one is un-hackable.

    "A pretty neat tool"

    February 15, 2011  |   By hondo12

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    Simple to install and use, and more importantly, it does it's job!

    Cons

    Don't think there's a Mac version for it.

    Summary

    For a guy who is not a tech whiz, this was just what the doctor ordered. My friend uses a Mac-book, and I think that they do not have a version for it. So I had to remove a star. Hope to see a Mac version for people like my friend.

    "Great Program"

    January 21, 2011  |   By davidthoman1

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    This program is pretty easy to use and hides any file. It's intuitive and takes about a minute to learn.

    Cons

    The interface does not allow you to customize the color of the screen. This would be a nice feature.

    Best security software. Very easy to use.

    "Best software"

    January 21, 2011  |   By jeffhattle

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    It's very easy to use but at the same time, it's solid. I lead a security team for a financial company and we use it for all of our sensitive files.

    Cons

    We have not found any issues with this and have been using it for 6 years.

    Summary

    Fast, secure and flawless.

    "Caution!!! Read "All versions" negative reviews first"

    September 10, 2009  |   By joehec

    Version: Advanced File Lock 7.1.3451

    Pros

    It has a nice looking interface. But that's it. I've done quite a bit research on this app. The company literally bribes many users into giving this app a five star rating.

    Cons

    Read All negative comments from user reviews on the All-versions link BEFORE downloading Advanced file lock to understand what you are in for with this product!!!

    Summary

    My personal experience: Having forgotten (Advanced File Lock thinks so) the unlock password for Advanced File Lock 7, it locked the computer up! I had to Force restart computer (not good for system stability) which allowed the computer to operate, but I still can't remove program.

    More than 2 months later, their "24 hour-a-day guaranteed" customer service still has not provided help. Just email them and observe the 100% silence for yourself.

    Do yourself a favor and stay away from Advanced File Lock.
