Free Hide Folder 3.1 Build 20140107

A free computer security tool to hide your private folders
Free Hide Folder is a software that can hide your folders, so only you can access them.

This type of application is ideal when you share a computer with other users. Since the need for privacy is great, you can appeal to complex programs designed for security. Free Hide Folder offers a simpler, no-fuss solution.

As soon as you finish installing the program, you have to set a master password (you also have to type it when you uninstall Free Hide Folder).

The user interface of the application is standard. You can add directories to the list by using the file browser (the "drag and drop" method is unsupported).

Once they are in "Hide" state, you can "unhide" them via the context menu and reveal their contents as well (this means you don't have to go to that particular location on the disk).

In addition, you can backup and restore data, enable grid lines, as well as change the password of Free Hide Folder. The program uses a low amount of resources, can guide you through an online help file and didn't freeze, crash or pop up errors during our tests.

Since our last revision of Free Hide Folder, the program has made some improvements. We recommend it to all users, since it is extremely easy to handle. However, if you're looking for a strong level of security when it comes to your private data, then you should look for other tools.
