My Lockbox

Editors' Review

by   / June 23, 2014

My Lockbox is designed to protect the contents of individual folders on your computer, allowing you to set password protection, limit access and edit permission, and more, alongside a number of other features that enhance what the default Windows settings provide for folder editing. While there are some issues with the interface and management end, the software works generally as promised.

Pros

Easy setup and folder control: It takes minimal time to set up a new account and start protecting your first folders. While the software only allows free account holders to protect one folder at a time, there are a number of other tools in place that are all accessible at the start; and for the most part, you can easily follow the prompts to get there.

Supporting toolsets: The interface is functional and works well in a modern Windows 7 and 8 layout, so accessing the additional tools the developers have provided for managing your folders and desktop privacy settings is fairly straightforward.

Cons

Usability concerns: While the interface looks and feels good for basic uses, such as locking down a folder, it can be cumbersome to find your way through if you're trying to find a specific feature, and especially if you make a change and want to find the options you used to turn that change off. The tutorials and walkthroughs are sparing and the layout is focused on function rather than design.

Bottom Line

My Lockbox is a solid app that works well for anyone that wants to protect the contents of an individual folder on their computer. Whether you need to protect one folder from outside access, or you want enhance the overall security settings and protections on your machine, this software takes some getting used to, but it will get the job done.
