Wise Folder Hider is a great little app that has been designed to password-protect your folders and files, so that prying eyes are unable to read or modify them. The app provides enhanced security for files and folders on your Windows PC, blocking any unauthorized access and securing your privacy.
Where Wise Folder Hider comes into it’s own, is the great way it offers users an optional additional higher level of security. You can set a second password for each of the files and folders hidden by Wise Folder Hider. This is great for those who have high security concerns due to having confidential files.
The app’s interface is easy to use as it is very intuitive. As an additional bonus, Wise Folder Hider gives you the option whilst installing it to add ‘Hide File/Folder with Wise Folder Hider’ to the context menu. You are then able to hide files or folders directly by right-clicking them without launching the app.
Where the app differs from similar software is that when it comes to modifying a hidden file or folder, you don’t have to unhide it, edit it, and then hide it again. A single click of the ‘Open’ button will open the hidden file or folder, so that it becomes visible to you. You can then edit or modify it as if it has been unhidden. When you have completed editing, you just close the program and the file or folder will become hidden again automatically. This useful feature comes in handy when you edit frequently used hidden files.
