Editors' review

Snoopers can't find or access the files you hide using Folder Lock, even in DOS or under other operating systems. This application also erases your Recent Documents history, so intruders don't know what to search for. The attractive lock-like interface presents the program functions simply. You can click on the Browse link to locate and lock folders anywhere on your computer, or you can simply secure them via a right-click. You also have the option to shred files for permanent removal, monitor hackers who try to break in to your secured files, and enable stealth mode so would-be wrongdoers can't even see the folders you have locked. In our tests, the program demonstrated good speed, even when securing large folders. If you share a PC and need to keep certain files to yourself, you should definitely have a look at this application.

    "Protect USB feature is my favorite"

    July 22, 2014   |   By davidcarlos231

    Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

    Pros

    It secures data saved in my laptop as well as in my USB drive

    Cons

    Trying my best to find one

    Summary

    I love this software, it is certainly different from others. I first used this program just to secure the information saved on my laptop. However, I was delighted to find out that it has the capability of securing portable drives as well. This feature of this software makes it better than the others.

    "It leaves no clue behind"

    July 22, 2014   |   By johnyjohn136

    Version: Folder Lock 7.3.0

    Pros

    The software is simple wow

    Cons

    No cons, the software is just perfect

    Summary

    It locks and hide my files, encrypts them and maintains its back up. I think it is enough for a data security software. But, Folder Lock is something special, it shred files and cleans history as well. It means there is no clue left of what kind of information you had saved on your computer and there are no traces of any computer usage history left. These features simply enhance the data security.
