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.

"Not As Good As It Should Be"

September 22, 2015  |  By HeadMoose

2015-09-22 07:12:47  |  By HeadMoose

 |  Version: Wise Folder Hider 3.22.99

Pros

Simple interface, easy to learn, easy to use.

Cons

It refuses to hide certain folders with a blank error message. And this is not even consistent. It should state the error reason, and provide specs as to what can and cannot be hidden. It doesn't.
Also, vulnerable to people who still know Windows Command Prompt stuff.

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

July 21, 2014  |  By alifarka

2014-07-21 12:43:57  |  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.

"It is OK, but useless."

February 23, 2014  |  By Not-My-Problem

2014-02-23 15:23:52  |  By Not-My-Problem

 |  Version: Wise Folder Hider 1.53.81

Pros

Hides folders, like it is supposed to do.
Very simple.

Cons

Windows can hide folders without additional software.

Summary

In Windows, you can right click a folder, click Properties, then check the Hidden option. The folder will disappear. To make it reappear, basically enable Show Hidden Folders in Folder Options to make it appear again so you can unhide it. That makes this software basically useless, unless you do not want to go through all of that trouble.
