Editors' Review

Folder Lock 7 locks, hides, and password-protects files and folders on your PC, but it also encrypts files and email attachments, takes secure backups, protects USB and CD drives, and makes wallets that can store credit card numbers and other sensitive personal information. It thwarts hackers by logging and acting upon multiple failed log-in attempts, while a hotkey-activated stealth mode keeps out snoops. Folder Lock is free to try for 30 days.

Pros

Master Password option: In addition to rating Password strength, Folder Lock 7 can ask for the Master Password for the Lock Files feature only, instead of for every feature.

Make Wallets: The Make Wallets tool creates secure data containers that can store and encrypt passwords, bank accounts, credit card numbers, and more.

Xtras: The Xtras menu holds Shred Files and Clean History tools. The Shred Settings (on the Settings menu) sets the default shredding action and can exclude locked and program files from shredding.

Cons

Secure backup: Don't get us wrong -- we're all in favor of the Secure Backup tool's end-to-end encryption, real-time data sync, and automatic backup of files added to Lockers. But you have to sign up for an account to use it, which could entail subscription fees later on, and it's not a substitute for a full system backup.

Bottom Line

Folder Lock 7's ability to secure your privacy and personal data reliably and without fuss would probably be enough to justify its reasonable cost versus similar freeware, but extras like encryption and secure data wallets make the difference.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Folder Lock 7.3.0.
