Computer hard drives can contain confidential and personal information that the user doesn't want to be visible for other people that access the computer and, although there is a system option to hide files and folders, it's better to use a program like Wise Folder Hider.
Easily hide your folders
How it works is very intuitive and in a matter of seconds any user will be able to start using it, because when the program is launched for the first time it will ask the user to input a master password and from that moment onwards it will only be necessary to follow a simple process:
- Select the file or folder that you want to hide. Even though it also allows you to use drag & drop technology on its interface.
- Decide if you want to use a customized password for the selected file/folder.
- Show the folder once again in the Windows Explorer.
As well as folders and files, Wise Folder Hider can also be used to hide external storage units that are connected via USB, whether a pendrive or an external hard drive.
Therefore, if you want to hide information in such a way that it isn't available for the rest of users of a computer, you only have to download it for free.
