How to Password Protect Folders on Windows

Folder Protection is a user-friendly software program integrated with Windows Explorer. What does this mean? To lock a folder, you right-click a folder, select the Lock Folder option from the menu and enter your password. When you are trying to access a locked folder, you are prompted for your password. If you enter the valid password, you can access your files.

Folder Protection is so easy-to-use that you need absolutely no computer skills to password protect your private folders. If you share your computer, use Folder Protection to stop others from opening and modifying your personal files and folders on internal, USB external, removable and network drives.

Unlike other security programs, Folder Protection will not allow to access locked folders in Windows Safe Mode, DOS or any other operating system. Locked folders always retain protection: criminals cannot view your files even if your drive is stolen and plugged into another computer with no Folder Protection installed.
