Editor's review for Secure Folder
It has never been easy to keep folders and files safe from prying eyes. Nevertheless, Secure Folder program has attempted to correct this anomaly by providing the user with the possibility of imposing a folders access restriction; either by locking, encrypting or hiding all or part of the data. Better still, the user can apply all three security restrictions simultaneously for total security.
One of the easiest techniques of securing a folder or a file is to change its normal attributes to hidden. The concealed file or folder is usually hard to get, especially by the people you are hiding it from. Not unless they know exactly where it has been secreted, will they ever get it. Of course, concealing files or folders the normal way is not foolproof, as a computer savvy person can still command the windows explorer program to reveal all hidden items. From here, they will just scroll and pinpoint the item that had been hidden and do whatever they want with it. Therefore, the idea of concealing items by the use of the windows security program and not using a more advanced security measure is not recommended for absolute folders or files security.
It is an ingenious software program that can easily be downloaded free of charge from the internet and provides both folder hiding and locking capabilities, on top of the user being able to encrypt their data. The software program comes with a delightful and easy use interface. Installing the software program is quite easy and doesn’t impose any unnecessary stress to your computer system.
Under a single view, the user will find all options bundled together for ease of use. Furthermore, adding more folders in order for them to be protected is an easy drag and drop undertaking that any user can accomplish. Unlock and lock functions found in the Windows Explorer can easily be integrated into this marvelous software wonder. This enables the user to impose protection from the right click function of the folder.
If by any chance the user enables the Windows Explorer shell extension, then they will be in a position to control the locking and hiding of the folders without accessing the program user interface. Nonetheless, when unlocking, the user is compelled to seek the software interface; especially if using Windows Explorer as the available file manager. This program is an all right application that is very useful for folder encryption intentions. Actually, activating all the security measures at once works like a charm and ensures the user’s hidden items stay that way; unless they want to retrieve the concealed objects themselves.
It is not only easy to install but it also secures items in a user’s computer system; especially if all its three functions are used concurrently. Moreover, the program’s encryption uses the standard reliable and strong AES algorithm. In the file manager, the locked items are clearly marked so that they are not accidentally deleted by the user.
