"I used it to protect my thesis work and I fell in love"

January 30, 2015  |  By Danny Gibs

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

I was working on my thesis, which was quite nerve wracking and there is a constant fear of getting it stolen. Folder Lock helped me a lot.

Cons

I am happy with it, really happy, no cons.

Summary

Anyone who has gone through the stage of thesis knows quite well that how delicate the work of the thesis is. Students find them strangled in this work and try to steal others. I was afraid of losing my thesis, so I looked for a security software and I found Folder Lock. I am very satisfied with it.

"Another switch and bait..."

January 26, 2015  |  By DarylPinColorado

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

Maybe a good product...but pricing is deceiving. What do you get for $39.95? They have a lite version for $29.95....but what is the difference? Pros are are useless when I am scammed into buying a more expensive product.

Cons

They seem to charge for every good part of the program...making this a very expensive product. Features that are discussed in the review are not part of the main program for $39.95...which is misleading. They have bought and paid for reviews that lead people to spend more money...switch and bait.

Summary

Could be a good product but I don't like being switched at a point of sale, being forced to buy a more expensive product to get features that I thought were included.

"Unique, one a kind security suite"

January 18, 2015  |  By jimbrooks197

 |  Version: Folder Lock 7.5.1

Pros

Full of unique features

Cons

Have some features which I don't need

Summary

I just needed something simple that would encrypt my files.
Although Folder Lock can do just that, it has some features I don't need.
Nonetheless, this review is less about me and more about the software.
When I was lost about how to operate the darn thing, Michelle in customer support promptly assisted me, and clarified how to use the software. Five out of five for customer support.

"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.
