Secure Folder offers you various options to help you keep your sensitive information away from unwanted eyes and hands. The program comes with a simple and clear interface where you can add as many folders as required for the program to lock, hide, and/or encrypt them using the newest 256-bit AES encryption technology.

Simplicity is certainly one of the program’s main assets. Making complex tasks simple is always a bonus when it comes to protecting your most sensitive information. Firstly, Secure Folder will require you to enter a master password. This will be the only entrance key to your hidden and locked folders, so keep it in a safe place. Locking, hiding, and encrypting a folder are as simple as ticking a box. From that moment on, the folder will be accessible to you only. Unlocking, unhiding, and decrypting secured folders are equally simple and rewarding tasks.

Now that your files and folders are secure and away from prying eyes, it is time to take a look at the program’s extensive list of extra tools. Apart from folders, this program can also restrict access to various other items, such as websites and applications. Besides, it can sweep unnecessary or private information from your system and lock all your external USB devices to avoid unauthorized copying of files from your computer to any external storage device. Additionally, you can use Secure Folder to locate and fix some system errors, and to manage all those programs that are executed automatically at startup (with and without your consent). Copying, moving, and deleting files in batches, hash computing and comparing, as well as the possibility of taking screen captures of your desktop are some of the extra functionality that you can also find inside this tool.

All in all, Secure Folder not only performs its main function in a straightforward and efficient way, but it also offers you a nice list of interesting extra tools for a fairly affordable price.
