Secure Folder is an effective program that enables you to prevent other users from accessing private folders from your computer. This application provides you with three efficient folder protection modes: hide, lock and encrypt; and by enabling one or more of these functions, you can make sure that no unauthorized person is able to access your private files.

At first launch, the program prompts a window where you need to enter the access password that you will use later on to bring the folders that you've chosen to hide, lock or encrypt to their original, unprotected state. You also need to provide a personal e-mail address so that, in case you forget the assigned password, you may easily get it back.

After you enable protection for the folders you need and close the application, your files are secure and no user can access them without your permission.

A good aspect about using Secure Folder is that, along with its encryption capability, it also offers you an extensive list of very useful utilities. These tools help you block the access to any website, application or drive you choose, manage startup programs, delete Windows temporary files and history, etc.

Briefly, I consider Secure Folder to be a smart and cheap solution for file protection as it offers me a very simple way to encrypt folders, blocks unauthorized access efficiently and provides me with a wide range of handy security tools.
