    "Packed full of features"

    May 3, 2014  |   By carlospaul34

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.6

    Pros

    All features are useful

    Cons

    Involves a slight learning curve

    Summary

    I downloaded the trial version to see if it was worth my investment. After using it for a couple of days, I found the software extremely useful in hiding my private folders - especially the ones located on my desktop. Sometimes I have to email my boss sensitive company data, and it was always an issue with email security and all. So, folder lock also has this encrypted email feature in which I can attach the PDF and excel files and it works like an encrypted zip folder which is password protected. All I had to do is tell my boss the password and he can securely access all email attachments. Since I began using Folder Lock at work, most of my co-workers became interested in the software, and they have all bought a licensed version. Considering the fact that the software license is valid for lifetime of your PC, and not to mention a variety of features, it is certainly a bargain.

    "The software is enough to keep my data secure"

    March 18, 2014  |   By amypiotrowski539

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.5

    Pros

    Lock files, encrypt files, provide secure backup, encrypt portable drives, secure wallets, cleans history, shred files and easy to use

    Cons

    The program is nearly perfect

    Summary

    The number of features that this software is offering me is not offered by any other data security software for sure. It is extremely easy to use with soothing interface and its security measures are just amazing. I feel very relaxed as Folder Lock will not allow my confidential information to get leaked.

    "Power pack security software on which I can rely"

    March 18, 2014  |   By lucaswalker1

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.5

    Pros

    It has everything that my data needs for security

    Cons

    There are no cons at all

    Summary

    Two of the biggest data threats are hackers' attack and portable drives (may get lost or stolen). Folder Lock sets up security so high that it cannot be broken by any hacker. sAll in all Folder Lock is a complete data security solution for my data.

    "Good software"

    March 18, 2014  |   By MrHenders0n

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.5

    Pros

    Very capable (does much more than just lock folders) with a well-thought-out interface.

    Cons

    Folders which are merely hidden by the software can be found by using an alternative OS (such as Linux), or possibly even in Windows Safe Mode (I'm not certain). However, if also encrypted, they would still be proof against snooping. And the ability to find hidden folders with another OS could be an advantage if you forget your password.

    "Data security suite with all the features I wanted"

    March 9, 2014  |   By alberttarrant1

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.5

    Pros

    Packed with useful security features

    Cons

    Requires a slight learning curve, but it's worth learning

    Summary

    Folder Lock has everything I was looking for. It lets me put all my "secret" data in encrypted lockers,
    and I use the secure backup feature to make sure I have access to my data wherever I go. Folder Lock may
    overwhelm you with the amount of features you have - there's also learning curve - but trust me,
    you'll find all of its features useful.

    "Can Upload Encrypted Lockers on the Cloud, its Amazing"

    December 2, 2013  |   By robertcervantes6

    Version: Folder Lock 7.2.2

    Pros

    Back up of encrypted lockers on server.

    Cons

    I really don't see any cons in it.

    Summary

    The amazing feature of Folder Lock is that I can access the encrypted lockers from any part of the world as they can be uploaded to a server. Other that there is a facility of carrying protected data in portable drives that is such a blessing.
