editor's review




Hide Folder is a small software application designed specifically for helping you hide sensitive folders from prying eyes. The tool offers a quick and simple way for making sure other users cannot detect the private information that is stored within a custom folder.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to conceal directories on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Simple looks

You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup that empowers you to tweak the dedicated parameters with just a few clicks. Everything is kept as basic as possible, so there’s support for only a few configuration settings that you can play with.

Main features

Hide Folder gives you the possibility to specify the folder that you want to hide. What’s more, you can simply drag and drop the desired directory onto the main panel, and the concealing process is accomplished automatically.

Other notable characteristics worth being mentioned enable you to view all hidden folders in the primary panel, select the directories that you want to reveal, as well as set up a master password for making sure unauthorized users cannot have access to the program’s settings.


During our testing we have noticed that Hide Folder carries out a task quickly. It doesn’t eat up a lot of CPU and memory, so the overall performance of the computer is not affected.

Bottom line

All in all, Hide Folder offers a straightforward software solution for helping you hide sensitive data, and is suitable especially for less experienced users.
