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.
