My first thesis way back in college was called Password Protect Folder. This was during Windows 95 era, when Windows OS was just starting to become popular. At that time, there was no way to password protect a folder ( and hey, I also made one to hide folders but they are easy to unhide) or at least I can’t find a better solution for me then. My professor in one of my computer science subject loved and approved my thesis. Unfortunately, I was not able to finish it due to time constraints and my choose of programming tool then was not capable to deliver my needs.
The only reason why I wanted to password protect a folder or directory and the files within was to keep my programming source codes from prying eyes. There were so much competitive in our school back then so I’m doing my best for other not to hack my files.
I’m sure the reason why you are here on my site is to find the same solution – to protect your sensitive data.
And I’ve got the perfect solution for you. No, I didn’t develop it but it’s the same software which I wanted for my thesis.
What does Protected Folder do?
According to IObit site,
Protected Folder is a folder / file locker which protects user’s privacy and important data from theft, loss or leaks. To lock folder and file, just drag and drop them into Protected Folder’s safety box and you can hide and protect them from being viewed or modified. Protected Folder is an ideal folder locker if you are concerned with the security of you private or important data.
And it’s true! It does exactly what it claims! It’s exactly the same what I proposed for my thesis. If you want to protect your important data and password protect folder/directory or file, look no further than this program. I highly recommend it.
It works like having a virtual safety box
