Folder Lock is a full-suite data security solution for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP (including their 32 and 64 bit variants). Folder Lock has been the world leader in data protection with more than 25 Million downloads so far. It is the most comprehensive solution for data security available on the internet.
Folder Lock lets you lock, hide and password-protect files, folders and drives with a simple drag and drop; encrypt your important files; optionally backup and sync those encrypted files in real-time, and store them to any portable device.
Folder Lock is the only solution that offers data security at rest, in use and in motion. Folder Lock not only Locks your files, folders and drives but also Encrypts them and stores them in encrypted storage files called Lockers. These Lockers can also be stored and backed up online for added protection of your sensitive data. It not only allows you to secure ALL your data in one single location – your Locker – but also online. All protection is automatic. Users cannot delete the Lockers on the computer where Folder Lock is installed (at default settings) and they cannot uninstall the program without the correct password. Lockers can be moved from one location to another, and can show all the encrypted data instantly once a correct password is entered.
