Free Software to Protect Files from Unauthorized Users

Personal data theft is a very real concern in these modern times. Free Folder Lock is an effective software program which will help to safeguard important information.

Core Features and Security Functions

Free Folder Lock will essentially act as an additional firewall in order to grant access only to those who are authorized. As it is able to work with both 32- and 64-bit operating systems, it is more flexible when compared to other security bundles. Users are presented with two primary options. They can either encrypt the data contained within a file or they can assign a password to such documents. Another unique benefit is that folders can be hidden from plain view; a worthwhile feature when a computer is regularly used by other individuals.

Portable Protection

Free Folder Lock can be used in conjunction with other storage devices such as CDs, DVDs and USB sticks. It also works with media files including videos and images. Please note that the basis version of this program is free to use. A premium addition is available for those who wish to enjoy advanced levels of protection.

Lock, hide, and password-protect files and folders.

Almost every computer user keeps files that are personal, private and confidential, or important to be preserved as undeletable. You may have files that are inappropriate for kids or other family members, or files with valuable information that can be stolen. Such files and folders need security protection so that intruders or unauthorized users cannot access, read, view, copy, move or delete them. Free Folder Lock can hide and password-protect your files, folders, pictures, and documents in seconds.


  • The basic variant of this software is free to download.
  • Videos and images are able to be encrypted and locked when desired.


  • This bundle is not compatible with iOS devices.
