Editors' review

Files, folders, and USB drives hidden on your PC with Wise Folder Hider can't be seen without your password. Drag-and-drop functionality and a no-nonsense layout make WiseCleaner's freeware easy to use, while a log-in password plus the option to set individual passwords to lock items make it doubly secure.

Pros

Double password protection: Optional Two-Tier Passwords can lock hidden files and folders with additional passwords. Password-protected items show up as Locked on Wise Folder Hider's main list view.

Hides USB drives: Unlike many similar tools, Wise Folder Hider also hides USB drives (though obviously it can't disguise any thumb drives connected to your PC).

Privacy: There are lots of reasons to hide files and folders on your PC, but they all start with one thing: your privacy.

Cons

No external HD: Although Wise Folder Hider can hide parts or all of an external Flash drive, it won't do the same for external hard drives.

Paid support: Users can purchase "Ultimate 24x7 Email Support" for Wise Folder Hider (and other freeware) for an annual fee, but freeware with paid support isn't free.

Bottom Line

Wise Folder Hider is easy to use and effective at hiding and locking your private files, folders, and USB Flash drives. Skip the extended warranty, keep track of your passwords, and let Wise Folder Hider enforce your privacy.

    "Hides folders and sets password, NO TRIALS OR CATCHES!"

    July 21, 2014   |   By alifarka

    Version: Wise Folder Hider 2.02.83

    Pros

    FREE! The only free folder hide and password tool I could find that did not have some trial trick, like trial time limit, folder limit, preset trial password, no usb flash drive capability, I went through 3 or 4 others, Folder Lock, My Lockbox, etc. what a pain, they say they are free, you have to install then find out there is some catch! Have not found any trouble with this, and the graphics are fine, not too primitive, and not too fancy.

    Cons

    Not true encryption, just a barrier to casual snooping. Not truly portable, you have to install it on any system you are using, if you want to access USB flash drive. So, if you do not have administrative rights you won't be able to access your locked files.

    Summary

    If you just want a simple password and folder hide privacy tool, save yourself a lot of hassle and go for this one, it seems to do the trick just the same as the other ones that jerk you around with bait and switch tricks, then hit you with a $40 price tag.
