Windows Password Protect Folder

By KakaSoft Free

Developer's Description

Lockdir allows users to encrypt and password protects folders so that nobody else will be able to access them. In today's day and age, we all have to store a lot of sensitive data (personal or professional) digitally on hard drives or USB drives. This data needs to be adequately protected from unscrupulous individuals.

Users do not have to go through a complicated installation process as they can run the software anytime, on any device and password protect folders as well. Users can lock a folder by giving it a unique password and they can also disable the password protection at any time if they feel the need to do so. This folder protector is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 10, and Windows 11 so it is effective for the vast majority of devices.
