Folder Password Lock Pro Description
Folder Password Lock Pro is a security application you can use to hide files, folders and entire drives when sharing your computer with other people, in order to protect your privacy. It gives you the possibility to set a master password, and it can also hide external disks or locations shared over the local network.
Hide and lock files, folders and drives
Once the tool is installed, it asks you to specify and confirm a master password that must be remembered or you won’t be able to gain access to hidden items. The main app window has a neatly structured layout, where the buttons are self-explanatory.
You can hide files, folders or entire partitions by just pointing them out, or keep them visible and lock them to prevent other users from accessing them (they get an “Access denied” message).
Unhiding and unlocking the objects can only be done inside Folder Password Lock Pro, since all you have to do is select the entries in the list and click the “Show” or “Unlock” buttons.
Monitor directories for file changes
Furthermore, you can indicate a directory to monitor, in order to keep track of all its new, modified, renamed or deleted files, as well as export this data to file. Advanced settings can be configured to include files by name or type, as well as to enable or disable notifications for all supported modifications: file and directory name, size, attributes, create, last write and last access time, security, subdirectories.
Encrypt or shred files
The software application also comes bundled with an encrypted feature for protecting files and folders with passwords (separate from the master key), as well as a shredder for permanently removing items and making sure they cannot be recovered with specialized software.
As far as program options are concerned, you can change the master password and set an email address for recovery, activate self-protection features in case someone enters the wrong master key too many times or if you want to hide the utility’s presence on the computer, create an exclusion list of files, folders and drives to protect, as well as view software log details.
Comprehensive password tool with intuitive options
All aspects considered, Folder Password Lock Pro is a feature-rich utility dedicated to securing your important data using password protection, encryption, shredding and monitoring. Too bad that its interface seems outdated, like it was built for Windows XP.
