Secure Folder is a very useful software program that lets us protect the information contained in our folders by using any of these three different methods: Lock, Hide, and Encrypt. This software tool is very light and very easy to use, and provides a really important benefit: the opportunity to block undesirable access to our folders. This tool is as powerful as it is simple to use. It allows us to apply security options to our folders in just three steps: adding the folder or folders to protect, selecting the protection method or method combination, and applying it. That is all.
The first time we run the program, it will ask for a password, which will become the master one. We will be asked to enter this password every time we run the program, and also when we want to apply different security options to any of our folders straight away, without opening Secure Folder. This is perfectly possible, since the program also adds its own entry in the Windows contextual menu. This makes the task even easier: you just right-click on the folder you want to protect, and choose the corresponding option (Lock/Unlock with secure folder), apply the changes, and just wait for it to finish. It works like a charm!
