If in search of a comprehensive solution to protect all your sensitive information from prying eyes, Folder Lock offers you not only strong password protection and encryption, but also an unassailable backup to recover your lockers and wallets in case of data loss. It can protect both your system drives and whatever USB devices you wish to carry with you.
As you might expect, the first thing you need to do when using Folder Lock for the first time is to create a strong master password. This will be your only entry to the program from then on, so make sure you don’t lose or forget it. Then, to protect your files, you need to create your lockers. These are used to encrypt and restrict access to individual files, which will be encrypted using AES 256-bit technology on the fly as you send them to the selected locker – it’s like putting your valuables on an impregnable safe.
To protect your most sensitive information regarding bank accounts, credit cards, passwords and other login information, Folder Lock offers you its wallets, which will become equally inaccessible to anyone but you. The program can also protect entire folders and drives, making them invisible to unwanted eyes. You can carry your lockers with you on a protected USB device. Lockers are turned into executable files that you can run on any PC without having to install Folder Lock first. The program also offers ways to protect e-mail attachments by creating safe ZIP files and tools to clean your history and to shred files for good. more
