Below are some of the features that Folder Lock offers. Read on and identify how you may get a complete peace of mind knowing there exists a software that keeps you protected 24/7.

Folder Lock – Features:

Lock Folders:
The most basic feature of Folder Lock is that it lets you lock folders. But that’s not it. Once you lock a folder, it gets hidden from its previous location and can only be accessed through the software’s interface. This option lets you maintain the bulletproof security of your confidential folders where you may create and use numerous folder(s) without letting any other person know.

Encrypt your Files:
The best feature of Folder Lock is its ability to create Lockers. These aren’t just ordinary lockers as these lockers are protected by AES 256-bit encryption (An encryption that hasn’t been breached as of yet). Furthermore, you do not need to encrypt or decrypt files when accessing; simply copy them to lockers, and that’s all! They’re encrypted on-the-fly.

Protect USB:
The best part? You may also keep lockers in portable drives like USB drives, external drives, etc. Folder Lock is created in such a way that it lets you convert these lockers into executable files so that you’re not bound to install Folder Lock every time you plan to access your protected files. Also, you may even burn them directly to CDs/DVDs and create password protected zips for email attachments.

Shred Files:

Such data might be of no use to you anymore, but it may damage you if it gets landed into the wrong hands. What we usually do is we consider the simple deleting process as the only option to get rid of file/folders which is not sufficient. When we delete a file, it gets removed from being used, but it exists in the records and can be recovered later. Therefore, to completely get rid of your files/folders that you no longer need, you need to shred them once and for all as once shredded, your data is irrecoverable.
