"Overhauled version"

December 19, 2014  |  By austinrashley

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5

Pros

version is the best yet

Cons

Needs Google drive integration

Summary

I've been using Folder Lock since version 5. In between major updates i.e. version 6 and 7, the developers had made some radical changes by adding new features and changing its interface design. However, every time a new version is released, it never fails to amaze me - in a good way that is. So testing out the latest version, I did notice that the interface looked simpler and the developers have managed to resolve many of the kinks that were plaguing the previous version. I just wished that it had Google drive integration. Nonetheless, I would give it five stars for its usability and customer service.

"Unbreakable security"

November 05, 2014  |  By charless.covey1

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

Pros

Extremely strong algorithm, unbelievable secure for every kind of data.

Cons

There is hardly any bug, even if there is, it is avoidable

Summary

I am a technology geek. My favorite hobby is to test software and dig out its deficiencies. But, when I tested Folder Lock and tries to break its security, I was excited to see how secure it really is. It literally has no loophole. I am too inspired by it and now using it personally.

"My assignment is safe both in my PC and in portable dri"

October 09, 2014  |  By adrina.michael

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

Pros

It provides security to data saved in both the PC as well as in the portable drives

No con for me at least

I am a student of PhD and working on my thesis. These days, the importance of my thesis work simply cannot be explained. I need to protect it from the world at any cost, for that I opted this software. It secures it in my portable drive and also gives protection to its back up on my PC. I am thankful to Folder Lock.

"Highly recommended for locking and hiding information"

October 08, 2014  |  By phil346

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

Pros

Extremely easy to lock down your data with extreme reliability

Cons

Folder Lock is nearly perfect, no cons probably

Summary

This security software is simply excellent for locking and hiding personal files and folders. I love that all I have to do is to drag the desired file to this program and drop to make it secure. It also guides me with the strength of my password so that I always set up a strong password. This software is too useful for users like me that are not much tech savvy. It deserves five stars!

"Defective Program and ZERO Customer Support"

October 08, 2014  |  By ccwhart

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

Pros

Encrypts files effectively

Cons

Encrypted email attachment feature does not work at all, and no answer to repeated requests for customer support.

Summary

Folder Lock claims that it can be used to send encrypted email attachments. This is a lie. When a file is encrypted for the purpose of being attached to an email with Folder Lock, a zipped folder is created. And is the encrypted file in the zipped folder? NO! Absolutely NOTHING is in the zipped folder. I tested it again and again with every possible combination of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Hotmail, Yahoo and Gmail, and it's always the same--empty. It's not even a problem involving attachments or any email system--the folder is empty when I open it on my own computer without having sent it. Maybe there's a solution, but I'll never know because New Softwares' bold promise that all support requests are answered within 24 hours is also a lie. I have sent them THREE requests for assistance over the last SEVEN days, and I have yet to receive an answer. I advise anyone who is looking for a way to send encrypted email attachments not to waste their money on Folder Lock.
